Jeff’s Caramel-Pecan Sticky Buns

IMG_3798 We have a friend, Jeff. Jeff loves sticky buns. He loves them so much that each week when we all would meet for coffee the only thing he would order was - you guessed it - a pecan sticky bun. So...of course we had to come up with some that are buttery and gooey and all things sticky bun. These are them. They take a bit of time to make but are so worth it......

Jeff's Caramel-Pecan Sticky Buns



  1 package dry yeast 3/4 cup warm water 3/4 cup warm milk 1/4 cup sugar 3 tablespoons canola oil 2 teaspoons salt 3 3/4 to 4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour  


  1/4 cup butter, softened 1/4 cup sugar 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon 2 tablespoons cocoa  


  3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans  


  In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Add the milk, oil, salt and 1 1 /4 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover (a shower cap works well here) and let rise in a warm place until doubled - about an hour. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into an 18-inch. x 12 in. rectangle. Spread butter to within 1/2 inch of edges. Combine sugar, cinnamon and cocoa; sprinkle over butter. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 slices. Combine brown sugar and cream; pour into a greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Sprinkle with pecans. Place rolls cut side down over pecans. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about an hour. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes or until well browned. Cool for 1 minute before inverting onto a serving plate. FullSizeRender
