Oh my! These sticky buns are good! I knew they would be so I waited until my son came home from college for the weekend before making them. Otherwise, I would have been tempted to eat too many like I did with the Pear Tarte Tatin. Yikes!
These Honey & Caramel Sticky Nut Buns are made with the Healthy Bread in Five Minutes Pumpkin Pie Brioche Dough, but you could also use the Whole Wheat Brioche dough or the Braided Challah with Whole What and Wheat Germ dough to make them. I prefer the Pumpkin Pie Brioche. It’s made with white whole wheat flour and flavored with pureed pumpkin, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and other delicious spices.
I baked these sticky buns from the pumpkin pie brioche dough I made over a week ago. It will keep in the refrigerator for 5 days, but can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 weeks, so I froze it.
The Pumpkin Pie Brioche recipe can be found here.
The night before I wanted to bake these sticky buns, I took the dough out of the freezer and let it thaw in the refrigerator. It was ready to use the next day.
It was sticky so I had to use extra flour to roll out the dough, but it didn’t affect the flavor or texture of the bread at all. The topping and filling is a mixture of honey, brown sugar, orange zest, butter, and delicious spices. Doesn’t the caramel look delicious bubbling in the pan?
I omitted the raisins and forgot to add the nuts to the filling so I just sprinkled them on top of the rolls after they had been baked. I liked it that way.
The sticky buns were delicious! In fact, this is all that’s left.
