With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Pecan Sticky Buns from Bread Machine Dough

Pecan Sticky Buns from Bread Machine Dough

Seems like a trend going on here.  Three exhausting weekends in a row doing yard work and three times I shuffled my weary bones in and made some type of sweet roll.

This time, I used my tried and true basic dough, in the bread machine and turned out some really yummy sticky buns.  Half were topped with pecans and the other half had both pecans and raisins.  You can omit either/both if you wish.

Pecan Sticky Buns
Make dough following:

Sweet-Dough Recipe 

1 large egg plus enough water to measure 1 cup
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups bread flour
3 Tbs. Nonfat dry Milk
3-5 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. Bread Machine Yeast

Add all of the ingredients in the order recommended by manufacturer of your bread machine (usually wet ingredients followed by dry ingredients and ending with the yeast).  Set the machine to dough setting.  When complete, remove dough from machine and allow to rest, covered for 5 minutes.

Make Glaze(I used King Arthur Flour recipe for the glaze and sugar filling) 
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tablespoon rum, optional
3 tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
Stir together the syrup, rum (if you're using it) and melted butter.

Cinnamon Sugar Mixture
In small bowl, stir together:
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon Flour

    When dough is finished, lightly grease two 9" round cake pans.

    Divide the glaze evenly between the pans. Sprinkle with brown sugar and pecans (and raisins, if using).

    Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface, and roll it into a 16" x 12" rectangle. (I roll the dough on a silicone sheet)

    Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over dough, leaving an uncovered strip about 1" wide along one long end of the rectangle.

    Starting with the sugar-covered edge, roll the dough into a log the long way.

    Using a serrated knife, slice the log into 16 slices.

    Space eight buns in each of the prepared pans. Cover the pans, let rise till they spread out and touch one another, about 60 to 90 minutes.
    While the buns are rising, preheat the oven to 350°F.

    Bake the sticky buns for 15 minutes. Tent them lightly with foil, bake till light golden brown, about 10 more minutes.
    Remove the buns from the oven, and loosen their edges with a knife. Carefully (the sugar is hot) turn them out onto a rack or parchment-covered sheet pan to cool, scraping any glaze that may have stuck to the pan onto the warm buns.
    Serve warm, or at room temperature. 
    To Freeze:
    After rolls have cooled, separate and place into a freezer container lined with waxed paper.  Thaw on half power about 20-30 seconds.

    Ann said...

    pecan sticky buns, yum. those look incredibly good and I like the idea of adding the raisins

    Susan said...

    Lorraine, those look fabulous. If I made them, I'd want the whole pan. HOW do you bake and then not eat? How? How? How? You are as slender as a reed. Anyway, they are yummified! Susan

    Brandi said...

    Your sticky buns look amazing. They are my husband's favorite. I can remember my dad bringing them home from the bakery when I was a kid. I have not seen them sold in stores here in Georgia though. Maybe it's an up north thing!

    Lorraine- You MUST stop doing this to me- I come here full of reserve and leave drooling! lol I finally have a computer to visit again! xo Diana

    Melissa Bo said...

    Olga said...

    They look so yummy!

    Jacqueline said...

    These look fantastic! They turned out so beautifully. I think it is working too hard - when I exercise too hard I start craving baked goods - sounds like you do too! Bring some over next time! Yum-a-licious.

    Just a little something from Judy said...

    All I can say right now, while sitting here with my cup of steaming coffee, is that I wish I lived right beside you!!! What is a girl to do, when one sees such amazing creations right in front of her, so early in the morning!
    You make me smile. You are so fit and trim, and yet you pull things like these rolls from your oven. I guess it is the three weeks of yard work before it all.

    Lea Culp said...

    Oh, my goodness, these look like something out of a magazine! I'm sure impressed! Sweetest blessings!

    Girl, you're killing me here. If only we were neighbors! :)

    Yard work is calling to me and I have been ignoring it, so far. It's on my list, though. Gotta get with it, and soon.

    Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

    They look perfect! I could almost smell their wonderful cinnamon sweetness through my computer. MMMmmmm

    SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

    This sounds like the perfect treat after a day of hard work in the garden! The bread machine makes it even more appealing to me. I think I need to treat myself to these!

    Beth said...

    Your sticky buns look absolutely wonderful! After working outside, there isn't a lot that would induce me to bake inside, but these would do it.

    Molly said...

    These look wonderful, and easy because of the bread machine! I'm wondering if I can get these all formed and put in the pan and bake them the next morning? Would they just need to go in the fridge? Would they need to rise a bit before I put them in the oven?
