9 rolls



  • ¾ cup water

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 cups white bread flour

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 ½ tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder

  • 1 teaspoon fast-rising dry yeast

  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • ¼ cup light corn syrup

  • ¼ cup butter

  • ¼ cup chopped pecans (Optional)


  • ¼ cup butter, softened

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Make dough: Combine water, butter, bread flour, white sugar, milk powder, yeast, and salt, in that order, in the bucket of a bread machine. Select the Dough cycle. Remove dough from the machine after the cycle is done, about 1 hour 45 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, make sauce: Combine brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Pour sauce into an 8-inch square baking pan. Sprinkle with pecans and set aside.

  3. Fill dough: Turn dough out onto a floured surface, punch it down, and roll into an 8x12-inch rectangle. Dot with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll up and pinch seams together. Slice roll into 9 equal pieces, about 1 1/3-inches thick; place cut-side down into the baking pan on top of pecans. Set aside until rolls are doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  5. Bake rolls in the preheated oven until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan for no more than 3 minutes; invert a serving platter on top of the pan, then turn over. Carefully remove the pan to release rolls and allow pecan sauce to flow over rolls.
