These are gooey, sticky, and extremely sugary!
Check out my previous post, Joanne Chang’s book Flour, or this website to get the recipe for the basic brioche dough that you need to make these.
What follows are the ingredients and instructions to create these Sticky Sticky Buns!
Thank you Joanne for sharing these with the world! Enjoy!!
Sticky Sticky Buns:
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks; 170 grams, 6 ounces) unsalted butter
- 1 1/2 cups (345 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1/3 cup (110 grams) honey
- 1/3 cup (80 grams) heavy cream
- 1/3 cup (80 grams) water
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- Basic Brioche Dough, recipe in previous post
- 1/4 cup (55 grams) light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
|Goo, filling, ready for rolling, all rolled up|
Use a bench scraper or a chef's knife to cut the roll into 8 equal pieces, each about 1 1/2-inches wide. (At this point, the unbaked buns can be tightly wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen for up to 1 week. When ready to bake, thaw them, still wrapped, in the refrigerator overnight or at room temperature for 2 to 3 hours, then proceed as directed.)
|cut and set in goo|
Pour the goo into a 9 by 13-inch baking dish, covering the bottom evenly. Sprinkle the remaining pecans evenly over the surface. Arrange the buns, evenly spaced, in the baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and put in a warm spot to proof until the dough is puffy, pillowy, and soft and the buns are touching-almost tripled in size, about 2 hours.
Position a rack in the center of the oven, and heat to 350 degrees F.
Bake until golden brown, about 35 to 45 minutes. Let cool in the dish on a wire rack for 20 to 30 minutes. One at a time, invert the buns onto a serving platter, and spoon any extra goo and pecans from the bottom of the dish over the top.
The buns are best served warm or within 4 hours of baking. They can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day, and then warmed in a 325 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes before serving.
