World’s Best Cinnamon Sticky Bun Recipe

It has been quite some time since I posted a recipe on my blog! Since my Mom and I did some baking this weekend I thought I would share some more of our favourites! This recipe is one to die for, and is from the kitchen of my Auntie Lori! On a cold winter day, nothing beats the smell of warm cinnamon, pecans and brown sugar!  I have almost eaten the whole pan to myself, consider yourself warned- they are addicting!

2 Cups of Warm Water

1/4 Cup of Honey

2 Tablespoon of Yeast

1/4 Cup of Melted Butter

1 Teaspoon  of Salt

2 Eggs

1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice

1/2 Cup of Raisins (Optional, we didn’t use them)

5-6 Cups of Flour

Ingredients For Sticky Coating

1 1/3 Cups of Packed Brown Sugar

1 Cup of Butter

1 1/2 Tablespoons of Corn Syrup

1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon

1 1/4 Cups of Pecans

In a large mixing bowl, combine water, honey and yeast. Let stand for 10 minutes. Add melted butter, salt, eggs and lemon juice. Beat until frothy. Add raisins and flour, stirring in a bit at a time until dough is smooth but stiff. Turn into greased bowl and let it rise until doubled. Punch down and divide it into 2 pieces. Roll out and spread with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and cut. For the Sticky coating, bring all ingredients to a boil for 30 seconds. Pour into greased pan and place cut buns on top. Place in a greased pan. Let the dough rise until double in size, then bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.


If you use quick-rise yeast, add it to the flour and follow the recipe. You don’t need to let the dough rise the first time.
