Maple Pecan Sticky Bun

Maple Pecan Sticky Bun was fun to bake and eat. The bread used here is the same used for cinnamon rolls. The difference here is the filling, we used finely chopped pecans along with hazelnut meal, brown sugar and maple syrup. It is rolled in the similar way as cinnamon rolls are, but it is assembeled in a 10'' pan where the rolls sit next to each other starting in the middle and placing them around the center. Before the buns are placed in the pan, it is assembled first with pecans and honey glaze and after it is baked it is turned upside down and hence the results are apparent in the picture with glazed pecan ending up on the top. We made cinnamon rolls and these buns together. While making it, I figured I love everything that goes into making this, I will like it perhaps more than cinnamon rolls, but after tasting both the cinnamon rolls and the maple pecan sticky bun, the cinnamon rolls win.
