Recipe: Sticky Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

Salam alaikum!

Couple of days ago, I posted on instagram that I made some sticky pecan cinnamon rolls filled with apples for the first time ever! I also decided to film the entire process, for fun :)

Here it is. Let me know if you want me to do more of this okay!


This recipe makes approximately 12-16 rolls depending on how big/small you want them to be.


Yeast Mixture

1 pack of dry yeast (got it from NTUC Fairprice)
1 teaspoon of granulated sugar
1/4 cup of warm water (not too hot, not too cold, to activate the yeast)

In a small bowl, combine the sugar, warm water and sprinkle the yeast over the top. Let it sit for about 5 minutes.


1 egg
3/4 cup of whole milk
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/4 cup of unsalted butter, melted

In your mixing bowl, mix the egg, milk, salt, sugar and melted butter. I skipped the salt because I used salted butter.

4 cups of plain flour
yeast mixture

Add 2 cups of flour and the yeast mixture. Mix until it is well incorporated and gradually add the remaining flour. Mix it for about 5 minutes until you have a smooth dough.

Oil a large bowl with some vegetable oil. Take out the dough from your mixing bowl, pull it together with your hands to form a ball. Place it in the oiled bowl and oil the top of the dough with some vegetable oil as well. Cover and place it in a warm spot for about 60-90 minutes for it to rise.

Sticky Caramel Sauce

1/2 cup of unsalted butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of heavy cream
1 cup of chopped pecans

In a pot, add the butter, heavy cream, brown sugar and let it cook and melt. Keep an eye on it. Once the sugar is dissolved, turn the heat off and let it sit and cool. Once cool, pour it in your baking pan and sprinkle the chopped pecans.

Cinnamon Roll Filling

1/3 cup of unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon
1 apple, chopped into cubes.

Once the dough has doubled in size, roll it onto a floured surface into a rectangle. Brush the melted butter over the top and sprinkle the chopped apples & sugar cinammon mixture.Tightly roll the dough and cut it into 12-16 slices. Try to cut them evenly and place them in the baking pan. Cover with a towel for about 10-20 minutes.

Bake it for 20 minutes at 170 degrees celcius.
Allow them to cool slightly before carefully inverting them onto a larger plate.


Much love friends,
