Rosie Makes Sticky Buns.

I love a good sticky bun for breakfast
and I have the perfect recipe for a cinnamon breakfast bun.
Nothing better than a sticky bun and a good cup of coffee
for a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning breakfast.
Rosie's Sticky Buns
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 pkg. yeast
2 eggs, room temperature
4 cups flour
1 tsp Kosher salt

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar 
1 TB cinnamon
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup dates
1/3 cup chopped pecans

1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup honey

Pour melted butter into mixer bowl and stir in sugar,
then milk and cream.
Sprinkle yeast over top and beat 3 minutes.
Beat in eggs, one at a time.
Gradually beat in flour and salt,
scraping down bowl as necessary.
Knead dough by machine
or by hand on a lightly floured surface
until smooth and elastic - about 10 minutes.
Place in a buttered bowl, cover,
and set in a warm place until dough has doubled.

When dough has doubled,
turn onto lightly floured surface and
roll into a 9 x 18 inch rectangle.
Spread dough evenly with softened stick of butter,
sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon,
then add the raisins, dates, and chopped pecans.
Roll dough into an 18-inch long roll.
Cut into 18 slices.

 Butter a 10 1/2 x 15 1/2 inch baking dish
and pour the mixed topping ingredients evenly
over bottom of dish.

Place slices in rows of 3 across over the topping mixture.

Cover and set dough in warm place until doubled.

Heat oven to 350°.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until buns are golden brown.
Immediately invert onto baking sheet,
leaving the pan in place for 15 minutes
so the syrup can drain onto buns.

Dough ingredients:
Butter, sugar, yeast, cream and skim milk,
 eggs, flour, and sugar.

Knead until you have a nice, soft, pliable dough.

Let it rise.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface.

Gather into a ball.

Roll into 9 x 18 inch rectangle.

Spread a stick of unsalted butter over the dough.

Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.

Top with chopped pecans, raisins, and dates.

And roll it up.

While the oven was heating up,
I let the 1/2 stick of butter for the topping melt in the pan.

Brown sugar, molasses, corn syrup, and honey.
Mix all together.

Place slices in pan and ...

...  and let rise.

Bake about 25 minutes, until lightly browned.

Cover, invert, and flip.
