    JohnnyUK's Note:

    This recipe makes wonderfully soft butternut flavoured rolls with brown sugar and pecan nut filling, topped with cinnamon and pecan icing. You can swop out the butternut for sweet potato or pumpkin for an alternative flavoured bun.

      This was a very nice variation on regular cinnamon buns and I can't help but feel the additional nutrition provided by the pumpkin is a good thing. A great way to get some additional vitamin A into your picky eaters. :-)
