A cinnamon roll is softer, fluffier and more buttery. In addition, it requires two rises in the dough preparation. A sticky bun is heartier and usually sweetened with more brown sugar and cinnamon. It’s a quicker and easier, less doughy sweet bun and usually contains nuts.
The buns will keep for 2-3 days at room temperature. They need to be covered with plastic wrap or sealed in a plastic bag to prevent them from getting dry and stale. They can also be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
You sure can! Just bake and let cool then seal in a plastic bag and freeze for up to 3 months. To eat, thaw overnight in the refrigerator. They also taste great reheated.
Pop a sticky bun in the microwave for 45 seconds then into a 400 degree oven for 1-2 minutes to get a more fresh tasting crust.
