On Thursdays in the early 1970’s, you could always count on Sykesville Middle School being well attended. Thursday was “Sticky Bun Day.” The cafeteria ladies signature treat produced a delectable smell which could be detected as soon as you entered the building. Carroll County Public School Central Office Staff seemed to always appear on Thursdays and often detoured to the cafeteria on their way to sign in at the office. Sykesville Middle students, staff and faculty tried never to miss a Thursday and a chance to add a sticky bun to their purchased lunch.

  2. - 1 TBSP brown sugar
  3. - 2 tsp. cinnamon
  4. Roll up (as for a jelly roll) and cut into 1 ½” slices. Place in prepared pan of topping mixture, cut side down and leave space between buns because they will expand as they continue to rise.
  5. After placing cut pieces if dough in the baking pan, let rise again until double in size (about 1 hour).
  6. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes.
  7. When they are done flip onto metal pan immediately so the topping can seep into the buns while still hot.
