Serious Eats' Caramel Sticky Buns

[Photograph: Caroline Russock]

A good sticky bun (and we're not talking about the mall variety) can be a transcendent experience, just ask our own Ed Levine who had his mind blown by a roadside bun at Knaus Berry Farm in Homestead, Florida. It's pretty much impossible to read Ed's tale of this incredible sticky bun in the Serious Eats book without needing to try one out for yourself.

Fortunately for all of us who live outside of southern Florida, Kenji has created these Caramel Sticky Buns, tender, light (for a sticky bun, at least) and topped with gooey and glorious caramel. Oh, and there's even accounting for extra caramel sauce for on the side dipping. How's that for sticky bun foresight?

As always with our Cook the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of Serious Eats to give away this week.
