Red Cherry Sticky Buns




  • 1 (16 to 17 ounce) can sweet red cherries, drained (reserve juice)
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 package RapidRise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten
  • Cherry Glaze
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds

Cherry Glaze

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/2 cup reserved cherry juice


  1. Buns: Drain and halve cherries; reserve juice to use in Cherry Glaze.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together 3 cups of the flour, the sugar, yeast and salt.
  3. In a small saucepan, heat milk and 1/3 cup butter to 120 degrees F; stir in egg. Stir into flour mixture to form a ball.
  4. Turn out on a prepared pastry cloth and knead, adding only enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough until smooth and satiny (5 to 10 minutes). Cover and let rest 1/2 hour.
  5. With a stockinette-covered rolling pin, roll dough to an 18 x 15-inch rectangle. Brush with remaining melted butter to within 1/2-inch of edges.
  6. Arrange cherries over buttered dough. Roll up from 18-inch side; pinch edges to seal. Cut into 20 slices.
  7. Pour Cherry Glaze into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan; sprinkle with almonds. Place slices cut side down over Cherry Glaze. Let rise until double in bulk, 30 minutes.
  8. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven until golden brown, about 30 minutes.
  9. Cool for 5 minutes; invert on a serving platter. Let stand for 1 minute; remove pan.
  10. Cherry Glaze: In a small saucepan, heat butter, sugar, lemon rind and cherry juice. Boil, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens, 5 to 10 minutes.
  11. Serve warm.

Makes 20 buns.
