Bread Machine Cinnamon-Pecan Buns

Bread Machine Cinnamon-Pecan Buns created by Katzen

This recipe was shared by a "chef" on another web site. A real family pleaser made much easier with the bread machine. The prep time below includes bread machine and rising time. With all those wonderful pecans, this has to be a Southern U.S. recipe.

    Excellent recipe -- a keeper. I changed it slightly though since I keep kosher and do not wish to have a dairy bread machine. I left out the lowfat milk powder and water and replaced it with soymilk equal in amount to the water. I also used margarine instead of butter. I can only imagine how good this must be with butter!!! Anyhow, it came out PERFECTLY. I didn't have to add more flour or more water to the dough. It was extremely easy to make. I also used glazed pecans since I didn't have any plain ones. It only made things more sinful :). I have used other bread machine sticky bun recipes before, but this one I think is AMAZING. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, my, such a lovely, lovely recipe! From the absolutely perfect dough, to the lip-smackingly perfect syrup, and perfect directions - this is one of those stunners that makes everyone think you've been toiling in the kitchen for hours, when your breadmachine has been doing the work! I should note that I did use more pecan halves in the bottom of the pan than called for, probably close to double, to completely cover the bottom. I did also make an additional batch of that decadent syrup, too, as after preparing it for my work, and noting that everyone was looking for any extra drops in the pan, figured having extra on hand would be a good idea - and so it was, as only a drop remained. I had many requests for the recipe, and even made it again for my husband's work after it went over so well at mine. My only grief is that my bread machine kneaded itself off the counter while preparing the second batch for Phil's work this morning (entirely my fault) - and so while I can certainly assure you that this recipe can be prepared in a KA, or by hand, I'm now left to the (NOT) unfortunate task of getting the Zojirushi bread machine I've been lusting after! Thank you PanNan, for sharing these rolls with us - they are so absolutely wonderful! A real treat to prepare for those you'd like to make feel extra special. :o)

    i prepared this as directed but it came out with a hard texture and didn't rise to be as spongy-ish. 2 reasons i think this happened: 1) upon comparing it with similar recipes, i noticed that it states 1.25 t. of yeast, but i think it should have read 1.25 oz of yeast. similar recipes call for 2.25-2.5 t. of yeast, which is equivalent to 1.25 oz. i haven't tested this, but you may want to keep this in mind. 2) i also noticed that it called for 4.25 c. of bread flour, but most recipes i've seen usually call for 3 c., max of maybe 3.5 c. especially for a bread machine (i have a Sunbeam). i use the syrup recipe for the glaze from this, and it comes out great. the filling appears to be similar to other recipes like this one for pecan buns.
