Caramel Pecan Sticky Buns
The bread dough I use for these sticky buns is the same dough I use for my favorite cinnamon roll recipe.
It’s simple and easy to work with and rolls out well.
When baked; it is tender, fluffy, and absolutely delicious!
You can make the caramel sauce with just three simple ingredients: butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup.
(Of course I said butter!)
Add the chopped pecan pieces. As the rolls bake the caramel oozes between the swirls of dough and the pecans become lightly toasted.
Layered swirls of cinnamon sugar fill each roll and pair perfectly with something more on the savory side for breakfast.
Like thick cut bacon!
I’m telling ya, these rolls are perfect when served with bacon!
A little salty plus a little sweet equal one perfect breakfast for Mother’s Day!
So even though your mom would love a card, a day at the spa, or some flowers.
I’m guessing she wouldn’t say no to a pan full of the best homemade Pecan Rolls around!

In a small bowl; combine the yeast, two tablespoons of sugar, and warm milk. Stir until yeast and sugar are dissolved. Set aside to rest and start to foam.
In a large bowl; stir together remaining sugar, eggs, melted butter, and salt. Add in yeast mixture. Stir to combine.
Add the bread flour, one cup at a time. Mix and knead until dough is no longer sticky.
Put dough into greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place for 45-60 minutes.
While the dough rises, prepare the topping. In a medium saucepan; melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, and pecan pieces. Cook until sugar is dissolved.
Pour the topping into a greased 9×13 baking dish.
In a small bowl; combine the sugar and cinnamon.
Once dough has risen, turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a 16×21 inch rectangle.
Spread softened butter over dough and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
Roll the dough up tightly sealing the seam. Cut into 12 equal rolls and place in baking dish above topping.
Cover the pan and let rise for 40-60 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes until rolls are golden brown.
Remove from oven and immediately invert onto a heatproof plate or baking sheet. Let rolls stand for 2-3 minutes before removing the baking dish.
