I just needed the topping mix for. King arthur flour’s cinnamon bun loaf recipe. The topping worked perfectly, thanks!
I just made these twice in the last week and they were delicious! I like that they can go in the fridge overnight and be baked fresh in the morning. The second time I had them in the fridge a full 24 hrs and they turned out just as good. The dough is sort of like a cinnamon roll that you can unravel as you eat it! The only change I made was for the topping, I used 4 T. of maple syrup instead of the honey and corn syrup and I made one and a half times the amount of topping because we like them gooey. I will definitely be keeping this recipe!
I have made these before and they were wonderful! Now hubby is sugar/diet restricted and it is just the 2 of us 70 year olds. Can I cut the recipe in half w/o ruining it?
Hi Aurora, I don’t see why not!
I made 3 batches of these, two I gave to the neighbors(unbaked) for Christmas. These buns were unbelievably good. I did make a few changes: I used 3 whole eggs, I added 1 rounded teaspoon Cardamom to the dough, and 1/4 cup heavy cream to the sugar and butter syrup. I increased the amount of flour to make the dough the right consistency. The batch I made for home I froze 2/3 of the unbaked rolls. I refrigerate any rolls that will be baked the next morning. Frozen rolls I thaw and let rise on the counter over night.
So I love this recipe. I make them every year. I had a question can I make the dough and freeze it? I need to make it tonight but we won’t eat it until Christmas day…. what do you recommend ?
Hi, Gabrielle! If it’s just a day or two, I’d recommend just keeping the dough in the fridge. This said, yes, you can also freeze it! Just be sure to allow time for it to thaw (overnight) before making. Enjoy!
I just made these and let me tell you, they are absolutely delicious! I didn’t use the pecans simply because my family doesn’t like them and it was still so flavorful. I didn’t have any cornstarch on hand so I added more honey in addition to a little white sugar and water and it worked fabulously. I also added a little cinnamon and vanillla to the topping and they were just a flavorful addition. I didn’t think it was too sweet (then again, I have a big sweet tooth) and I can’t speak for the orange zest because I subbed it for a little lemon juice and it wasn’t noticeable, which is preferred. All in all, I totally recommend trying this recipe and adding your own flair to it!
I made this recipe after work one day and it took a long time! Solely due to the waiting time for it to rise. So I baked in the morning. They came out soft, delicious, and the topping was to die for!!! I did leave out the orange zest because I didn’t have any oranges. My only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because I would have liked the buns a tad bit sweeter. The topping was sweet but the bun wasn’t sweet enough. Over all I’d make again with more time and more recipe in the dough. :)
These are amazing!! Made a half batch last night and they are perfect this morning. Followed the recipe exactly except we used almonds because that was all we had.
made these exactly to recipe first, but we preferred without the orange zest for the next 10 or so batches. light fluffy crumb, and correct sugar and spice. my 7 year old grandaughter made them and won overall baking grand champion at local fair. only takes 20 to 25 minutes in oven if not refrigerated first. also keep your dough on sticky side for fluffy crumb. my grandaughter is better at separating yolks than me, her grandpa, to her delight. thank you for this recipe.
I made them over 2 days. Very nice but I think the Tablespoon of Orange zest makes for an Orange Cinnamon Sticky Bun. Just shocked at how orange the recipe is. The outcome would probably be better and more delicate with just a hint of orange, if you used 1 Teaspoon instead.
Delish! My dad’s favorite. Like others, I made this recipe all in one day, simply allowing the cut pieces to rise for 45 mins after placing them in the baking pan. The dough was silky smooth and the resulting rolls light and fluffy. I omitted the orange zest because I did not have any oranges, but I’m not sure it was missed – these were oh so good without it. I am a savory girl, but I ate two hot out of the oven! Yum.
Made these yesterday and baked them this morning….Little too done. But still good.
Recipe calls for 4+ cups flour but 3+ is more like it. Love the orange zest in dough.
I will make them again and cut down on flour and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
This dough is very easy to make and delicious Love the yeasty cinnamony goodness..
I don’t make bread dough very often so I am pleased it turned out so well.
Had to add milk at the end when I put the dough hook on but still turned out well. Thank you for the recipe and I will add it to my favorites. Jean
These are amazing! The orange zest adds the perfect balance to the sweetness. OMG these are a must make.
I made this recipe last week, WOW, large generous buns! I made the dough, I forgot salt, it didn’t matter and let it rise overnight in the fridge. In the morning I rolled the dough out, filled cut and placed on the caramel nut topping. I baked them without benefit of letting them rise on the counter. OMG they grew like crazy in the oven. Thank You for a great recipe!
Hello, just made this recipe and they came out great! I only used 3 1/2 cups of flour and 20 minutes of baking, which means you need to keep an eye after 20 mins. There’s soft and chewy on the inside and a bit harder on the edges. I recommend it! Thank you!
My experience may help answer some others’ questions. I made these all in one day, rather than refrigerating the formed rolls. Everything worked fine! After forming the rolls, I let them rise in a warm place about 45 min., and then baked as usual, except mine were done in just 25 min. And FYI, I made them just as regular cinnamon rolls, without sticky nut topping, and then just topped the rolls with frosting. YUM!
I just did this same method, I quadrupled
the recipe because I made it for a bunch of people. One roll I made a huge pan of the sticky buns and with another roll I did just cinnamon rolls and followed the same procedure you mentioned above and wow! They are beautiful!!
I just got done eating one of these ANMAZING sticky buns. I changed it up a little though. I omited the orange zest and instead of using pecans (which I did not have on hand), I used peanuts which I roasted. They came out so yummy!!! This is a really great recipe and very elaborate method. Next time I am going to go less with the sugar because after a few bites my palet was a little overwhelmed. But that’s just me because everybody else loved them.
GREAT recipe! New family favorite! Only needed 3 cups of flour, and used the “old fashioned” methods of mixing and kneading. Turned out so tasty– need lots of self-control to only eat one at a sitting! Will make again …and again …and again!
Can these be frozen then thawed to rise?
the best way to reheat is, is put a little butter in frying pan. cut in half. cover with lid till lightly toasted. mmmmmmm!!!!!!!!
