This is a standard sticky bun recipe from King Arthur.
All of King Arthur's recipes are online and they have a myriad of recipes for sticky buns,http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/r....
They work best with KA flours, but most any AP flour will result in a fine product.
I hope it helps.
I cheat and use a pull-apart biscuit dough (albeit very buttery dough and lots of butter, sugar, and nuts in the roll) for sticky buns. Very satisfying and I don't have to get up at the crack of dawn to get the oven going.
I roll the dough into a rectangle, dress, roll into a log, slice almost all the way through and arrange rolls in a ring. They can be pulled apart for serving.
Like I said not a sticky gooey bun but very nice nonetheless.
I recently made the sticky buns from Dorie Greenspan's Baking from My Home to Yours and they were excellent. They were made with a very buttery brioche dough and the topping wasn't too sicky-sweet.
