Sticky Buns That Literally Took Our Breath Away

If you could smell these sticky buns, you’d be be drooling. They are absolutely perfect and are literally my pride and joy.

Developing a recipe with yeast can be a little tricky. So on my first batch of these buns, I held my breath the whole time they were baking. And even though they looked perfectly poofed and swirled out of the oven, I was crazy nervous about the big flip! (All the caramel pecan glaze is on the bottom of the pan.) Luckily for me and you, I couldn’t be happier with what turned out of the pan. The buns are fluffy and buttery, the cinnamon swirls tightly wound, and the glaze as sticky as possible.

But hey, if you’re more interested in Classic Cinnamon Rolls, I get it. We have a pretty perfect recipe for those, too.

Yields: 1 dozen

Prep Time: 20 mins

Total Time: 3 hours 35 mins


For the buns

    Cooking spray

  • 300 mL

    lukewarm milk

  • 100 g

    plus 1 tsp. granulated sugar

  • 2 1/4 tsp.

    or 1 (0.25-oz.) package active dry yeast

  • 565 g

    plain flour

  • 55 g

    packed brown sugar

  • 2 tsp.


  • 1/2 tsp.

    bicarbonate of soda

  • 2

    large eggs

  • 110 g

    butter, softened and cut into cubes

For the filling

  • 175 g

    packed brown sugar

  • 2 tbsp.

    ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp.

    ground nutmeg

  • 1/2 tsp.


  • 65 g

    finely chopped toasted pecans

  • 4 tbsp.

    melted butter

For the topping

  • 110 g

    melted butter

  • 110 g

    packed brown sugar

  • 85 g


  • 1 tsp.

    vanilla extract

  • 125 g

    chopped toasted pecans


  1. Make bun dough: Grease a large bowl with cooking spray. In a small bowl or liquid measuring jug, add lukewarm milk and 1 teaspoon sugar and sprinkle yeast on top. Let sit until frothy, about 10 minutes.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine flour, brown sugar, remaining granulated sugar, salt, and bicarbonate of soda. Add milk and yeast mixture, and eggs. Mix at medium speed until a very soft dough forms, about 5 minutes. Increase mixer to medium-high speed and add butter a tablespoon at a time, mixing well after each addition, until dough pulls away from sides of bowl, about 15 minutes.
  3. Transfer dough to greased bowl, cover and let rise in a warm spot until doubled in size 1 to 1 1/2 hours. (At this point, you can refrigerate dough before letting it rest. Bring to room temperature and let it double in size before proceeding to next step.)
  4. Make filling: In a medium bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and pecans.
  5. Preheat oven to 200°C (180ºC fan). Grease a 23 x 33cm (9″-x-13″) baking pan with cooking spray. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and dust with more flour. Roll out into a large square, about 45cm (18″) square. Brush with melted butter all over, then sprinkle filling mixture evenly on top. Roll dough tightly into a log and cut into 12 evenly sized pieces about 3cm wide.
  6. Make topping: In a medium bowl, stir together melted butter, sugar, honey, and vanilla. Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly. Top with chopped pecans. Place rolls in pan, leaving about half a centimetre between each roll. Cover and let rise again until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  7. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes, then flip onto a cutting board. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
