This sticky pull apart bun does take time to make… but it is amazing! Great for afternoon tea or dessert.

Ingredients (serves 12)

  • 150gm butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbl rum
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 batch basic sweet roll dough..... use your favourite recipe!


  1. Preheat the oven to 180
  2. Melt 100gm butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and cream; boil until slightly thickened, about 4 minutes. Stir in the vanilla, vinegar, rum,and salt. Pour all but 1/2 cup of the mixture into an 8-inch-round, 3-inch-deep cake pan. Refrigerate until almost set, about 15 minutes. Set the remaining mixture aside at room temperature.
  3. Put the remaining 50gm butter in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave until melted. Put the caster sugar in another bowl. Pinch off tablespoonfuls of dough and roll into 1-inch balls. Dip the balls in the melted butter, letting the excess drip off, then roll in the sugar; arrange in the prepared cake pan in 2 layers, leaving a bit of space between the balls. Let rise, uncovered, in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour, 30 minutes.
  4. Bake the bread until puffed and golden brown, about 55 minutes; cover with aluminum foil if the top is getting too dark.
  5. Remove the bread from the oven and spread the reserved 1/2 cup mixture on top. Transfer to a rack and let cool 10 minutes in the pan, then invert onto a plate. Pull off pieces to serve.
