Is it the sticky caramel sauce with the pecans?
Whatever it is, I am going to keep making this Pumpkin Sticky Buns Recipe until I find out.
I’ve mentioned in my post on how to make the Easiest Cinnamon Rolls that making dough has always been intimidating to me. I’ve made recipes in the past where you have to allow the dough to proof and rise and it would never happen. What I have learned is that when you make something that requires yeast, the yeast must be fresh and the temperature of the liquid has to be accurate. I’m sure there are some other factors that go into allowing yeast to rise successfully that you can read about in this article.
I made it through my apprehension and nervousness when baking with yeast and was able to make something that is so delicious and so yummy that you will want to try this Sticky Bun Recipe as soon as possible!
I used the dough recipe adapted from The Pioneer Woman. First let me say, I love her. Out of all the bloggers in the world, I probably tried her recipes the most. So when I came across her recipe for Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls, I knew the dough was going to be fool-proof!
How I made these Pumpkin Sticky Buns
It starts off by warming the liquid combination which is consists of milk and vegetable oil and sugar. You then allow the yeast to proof on top of the warm liquid. Then, you can add pumpkin puree, spices, and flour. Now, when the dough came together, it still seemed a bit sticky to me but apparently, that is normal. As a matter of fact, you are going to add a nice amount of flour by the end of the recipe to get it smooth and pliable. Just, letting you know.
Once you’ve allowed your sticky buns to proof the second time and bake, you’re going to make a super easy sticky topping that is made with butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and pecans. Once your buns have cooled down a little bit, you’re going to pour that sticky topping all over those buns. It’s going to get into all the creases and cracks of those buns and absorb in that dough and make for a delicious and amazing bite!
I talk a lot about tradition on my blog and things I want to do for my family and food is definitely a big contributor to that. I know this Pumpkin Sticky Buns recipe doesn’t help our waistlines, muffin tops, or, in my case, booties, so I think I will make this recipe once a year in the fall before we head off to the Pumpkin Patch or another Fall event. Let this Pumpkin Sticky Buns recipe be a staple in your family during the Fall.
