Ingredients
  • Sticky bun dough, recipe follows
  • Cinnamon filling, recipe follows
  • Sticky topping, recipe follows
  • Dough:
  • 1/2 cup milk, lukewarm
  • 1/2 -ounce fresh yeast (compressed) or 1 1/4-ounce package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Cinnamon Filling:
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • Sticky Topping:
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup pecan pieces
Directions
  • Dough: Combine the milk, yeast and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and let rest for a few minutes to proof. Mix the eggs and salt into the yeast mixture. With a dough hook, blend in the flour. Then blend in the butter by the tablespoonful. With the dough hook, knead the dough for 7 minutes, or until springy and elastic. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, covered with plastic wrap, and set aside in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 50 minutes.

  • Filling: Punch down the dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll it out into an 8 by-18-inch rectangle. Brush with the melted butter and sprinkle on the sugar and cinnamon. Starting at a long side, roll the dough up into a log. Slice into 12 (1 1/2-inch-wide) rolls.

  • Topping: Lightly butter the bottom of a 9 by 13-inch baking pan. In a small saucepan, combine the butter and brown sugar and cook, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Pour the mixture into the pan and sprinkle the pecan pieces over it.

  • Lay rolls, cut side down, in the cake pan with the topping, squeezing them in if necessary. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 50 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees with the rack set in the middle.

  • Bake the rolls for 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Carefully invert onto a serving platter and let cool for just a few minutes. Break into individual buns and serve warm, with the sticky topping, and ice cream.
