Cinnamon Sticky Biscuits



Woke up in the throes of a southeasterly storm this morning – or rather woke up again, but got out of bed this time… my city self is not accustomed to this kind of coastal winter storm, particularly during the night. It encourages my already entrenched habit of waking up in the wee hours to worry about all the big scary things there are to worry about, unable to crawl into my parents’ bed and nestle myself between them.

By 7:30 my Dad had already been up for hours, worrying about his own things, and so I made cinnamon sticky biscuits. Growing up, we rarely had dessert, but when my Dad needed something sweet after dinner my mom would quickly stir up one of two things: chocolate pudding or cinnamon biscuits. I doubt this is the same recipe she used, but this is one of my favourites; the dough made with only 1/4 cup of canola oil and milk (I used lactose-free milk on account of my Dad, and you couldn’t tell a bit) they are better for you than most scones or tea biscuits. And they are a mighty fine thing to pull from the oven and eat warm with tea and coffee while the weather rages outside.

And really, I do love storms. And I love Tofino. If I was to be anywhere during a storm, this would be the place. We’re prepping ourselves now for a possible power outage, so I thought I’d get this up now. Besides, the recipe might come in handy on your Easter weekend.

Cinnamon Sticky Biscuits

Try laying thin slices of these biscuits on top of a dish of peaches or apples tossed with sugar, then bake at 350°F for 20-30 minutes for a phenomenal fruit cobbler.

2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. honey or corn syrup

2 cups flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins and/or chopped pecans (optional)

Put the butter, brown sugar and honey into an 8”x8” pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, put it in the oven and turn it on to 350°F.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the milk and canola oil and stir by hand just until you have a soft dough. Do not overmix!

On a lightly floured surface, pat or roll the dough into a 9” x 14” rectangle. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins or nuts. Starting from a long side, roll tightly jelly-roll style into a log. Cut into 9 biscuits using dental floss or a serrated knife, and place cut side down in the pan.

Bake for 20 minutes, until golden and bubbly. Invert onto a platter while still warm.

Makes 9 sticky biscuits.

    This has always been one of my favourite recipes from you; I’m too lazy and impatient to make cinnamon buns, and these are truly the next best thing. These are great the next day, too… although they rarely last that long!

    Oh, that idea for a fancy cobbler!
    This sounds like a much better day, storm and all, for you.

    These look delicious! Wish I had them in my house this morning for breakfast.

    Those look awesome and easy! My cinnamon sticky buns usually take hours (first rise the dough, then roll them and have them rise again while rolled up) this seems sooo much easier, and they look equally tasty! Will definitely try them soon!!!

    These are in the oven now… smell soooo good. I must say they were a lot less time consuming than the regular cinnamon buns. I see sticky gooyness a lot more in my future with this recipe!

    […] no desire to rectify the situation, to have a potluck brunch at the park. It was great. There was cinnamon sticky biscuits, and cherries, and cheese, and devilled eggs. The kids ran and played, and none of us had to do […]

    They understand it quite well that educational success is quite a
    decisive factor to check the employee’s motivation and skills.
    With the aid of the internet you can easily come to know how to get the
    background check quite efficiently. Many organizations now share such information through industry
    guilds, making lying on resume to gain advantage not worth its while.
