Schnecken (Sticky German Cinnamon Buns)
65 mins (prep 40, cooking 25)
14 ingredients
12 servings
Schnecken means “snails,” which is what these coiled buns resemble. They are much stickier, puffier, gooier and generally more over the top than ordinary Cinnamon Buns. These are just drop-dead good! I had them at a friend’s house and stopped on the way home and bought the cookbook that the recipe came out of: How to Be a Domestic Goddess, by Nigella Lawson. I liked these even better than the Cinnamon Buns we drove for over an hour to get (only to wait in very long lines) at Knaus Berry Farm in Florida! Preparation time does not include time for letting dough rise(One hour and 20 minutes).
