Course: Recipe


Prep time


Cooking time


Total time




  • 3/4 Pound potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 1/4 Pound 1 stick Margarine, at room temperature

  • 2 3/4 Cups Sugar

  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Salt

  • 1 Package Yeast

  • 2 Eggs Well Beaten

  • 7 Cups All Purpose Flour

  • 1 1/2 Cups Packed Light Brown Sugar

  • 1 1/2 Cups Chopped Walnuts

  • 1/2 Pound (2 sticks) lightly salted butter, melted

  • 1/4 Cup Ground Cinnamon


  • Boil potatoes in salted water to cover until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes, reserving 1 ½ cups of the cooking liquid, and mash. Measure 1 Cup of the mashed potatoes and reserve the rest for another use.
  • Stir together the mashed potatoes, margarine, ½ cup of the sugar and salt. Cool to lukewarm and add yeast, eggs and the reserved 1 ½ cups cooking liquid. Mix well. Add flour and stir. Knead on a lightly floured surface until the dough is smooth and elastic. Set in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk. Punch down and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. 
  • Butter three 9-inch round or square baking dishes. Distribute brown sugar evenly among the pans. Sprinkle with enough water to make the sugar very wet. Distribute walnuts evenly over the brown sugar. 
  • Roll out the dough into a ½-inch-thick rectangle on a well-floured surface. Brush with melted butter. Stir together the remaining 2 ¼ cups sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the buttered dough. Roll up the dough as you would a jelly roll. Cut into ½-inch-thick slices. Arrange the slices cut-side up in the prepared pans so that they are almost touching. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. 
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • Bake the sticky buns until golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes. 
  • Immediately invert the buns onto a plate.
