“These are moist, delicious rolls. They can be made gooey by making a caramel sauce. They also freeze well.”

Original recipe yields 15 rolls



  1. Place milk, egg, butter, sugar, salt, flour and yeast in bread machine pan. Make sure you add yeast last. Set bread machine on Dough cycle and begin.
  2. In a medium sauce pan, melt 1/3 cup butter over medium-low heat. Stir in 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons milk and 1 cup walnuts. Stir constantly until well blended. Pour this sauce in a 9x13 inch pan; set aside.
  3. After the cycle is complete, put the dough on a lightly floured board, and roll the dough into a rectangle about 10x15. Brush the dough with melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon, nuts and raisins.
  4. Roll the dough up tightly like a jelly roll, starting with the long side. Press the edges to seal. With a knife, or preferably a long piece of dental floss, cut the roll into one inch pieces. Place the pieces in the prepared pan on top of the caramel sauce.
  5. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until double in size, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until brown. Remove from oven and immediately turn upside down onto a platter.

excellent! I don't own a bread machine, so I made the dough in my trusty kitchen-aid mixer. It didn't take as long to rise as the recipe called for. I did a normal 1-hour first rising, punched it down and let it rise for another half hour, then shaped it and let it rise in the pan for only about 1/2 hour. Will make this one again.



I am actually writing this review hoping to get some tips from others. This recipe had a great dough texture (I like my sticky buns to be realy yeasty and soft not like bread) and the flavor was very good, but I ran into the problem I always do when I make cinnamon pecan sticky bun type stuff. Too Dry! not enough of the sticky stuff. So should I just triple the sauce recipe or something to make it more gooey? Other than that nice recipe, easy but time consuming. Thanks. Update Dec. 5 2006: This is a great dough recipe but I use the caramel recipe on "Cinnamon Rolls I" posted on this site. I double the caramel recipe and use pecans rather than walnuts. Great!



My rolls turned out very dry and heavy instead of gooey and light. I took the advice from below and used the caramel sauce (doubled) from Cinnamon Rolls I and it was good. I also used the cream cheese frosting from Cinnamon Rolls II and it was awesome! Double the cinnamon and brown sugar that goes between the rolls too because there wasn't enough. I'll make these again to try to get them softer but was disappointed.
