These Sticky Buns are the most perfect, soft, and gooey rolls! Filled with a traditional Cinnamon Butter Filling, and topped with scrumptious pecan-caramel mixture, they are the perfect fluffy rolls.
Mix the all-purpose flour, salt, orange zest, and nutmeg together. Add sugar, and the yeast to the warm milk. Add the eggs, lightly whisked, the rest of the sugar, and the vanilla to the bowl. Add the flour mixture to the bowl, at once.
Switch to the dough hook, or use your hands to start kneading the dough on a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for about 8 minutes using a stand mixer, or 10 minutes by hand.
To make the Cinnamon Butter Filling, mix the room temperature butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar together in a small bowl. Set it aside.
To make the caramel sauce, mix together the butter, light brown sugar, maple syrup, salt, and corn syrup in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, and simmer. Stir the mixture occasionally. Remove the mixture from the heat and add the vanilla extract.
Pour the caramel on the bottom of a baking pan greased and lined with parchment paper. Spread the chopped pecans on top of the caramel. Set it aside.
To assemble the rolls, turn the dough over onto a floured surface. Spread the butter cinnamon filling on top of the dough. Using floss is just much better to cut the rolls.
Place the rolls on top of the pecan caramel topping in the prepared baking dish. Cover with plastic and let the rolls rise for a second time. Bake the rolls in the oven until they are golden brown all over.
