This recipe for Orange-Pecan Sticky Buns
is great because you let the buns rise in the refrigerator overnight, which means you don’t have to get up at 6 a.m. so breakfast can be ready by 10 a.m.
All you do is prepare them the night before, stick them in the fridge, sleep, wake up, preheat the oven, bake them and voila — cinnamon sticky buns oozing with tasty, sticky, gooey, sweet and nutty orange-pecan glaze. They’re irresistible, and taste even better when you make them for someone you love, or are trying to love, or are trying to get to love you.
Though I left my pecan halves whole when mixing them with the topping, you can go the traditional route and chop them finely in the food processor before putting them into the mix. And the nutty pecan flavor mixed with the sweetness of the caramel mixed with the zesty citrus taste of orange?
My goodness. It’s a sticky bun that can’t be denied – which is why, even on bad days (or on bad terms), this is the go-to recipe to brighten anyone’s day!Stephanie (aka Girl Versus Dough) joined Tablespoon to share her adventures in the kitchen.
