This week’s challenge is a bit of a departure: It’s a similar recipe, done two ways. Some of us like sticky buns, some of us like monkey bread, and some of us love both. Basically, this is the Chatelaine Cooking Club challenge for people who love sweet, caramelized, cinnamony, buttery warm baked goods. Hooray, that’s all of us!
Make them at the beginning of the week for sinful breakfast treats, or make them on the weekend for drop-by guests. Either way, everybody wins. (Tip: The monkey bread is faster – watch this short video for a how-to.)
But wait: There’s more. Now the Chatelaine Cooking Club comes with prizing!
The best Caramel-Pecan Sticky Buns or Monkey Bread photo, as chosen by the Chatelaine Kitchen, will receive a new Starbucks one cup at a time Verismo 580 Brewer, complete with a box of smooth Espresso Roast Pods. The perfect accompaniment to these fresh-baked goods.

How to post your pic?
Once you have your photo, you can post it one of three ways (make sure you’re not on a private setting):
- Follow us on Instagram, then post your photo using @ChatelaineKitchen
- Follow us on Twitter, then tweet us your photo with the hashtag #ChatelaineKitchen
- Like us on Facebook, then message us your photo
- Email us your picture at email@example.com
Get your photos posted by Thursday December 5 at noon to be considered for the club’s gallery the following day, which will be featured with the next week’s recipe.
Quick photo tips: Don’t use a flash, natural light is best. Just place your plate near a window and shoot away. Don’t bother using props – they’ll detract from the featured food. Overhead is always nice, close-ups work well, and get in close so we can see what’s cookin’! The larger the photo, the better.
