These super simple Pecan Sticky Buns use a secret ingredient to make them quick and easy to prep. You’ll never guess the dough wasn’t made from scratch!
Every once in a while, someone sends me a recipe that I’m so intrigued by, I make it almost immediately. And that was 100% the case with these super simple Pecan Sticky Buns.
Elle’s kindergarten teacher, who also just happens to be one of the kindest and most lovely humans on the planet, sent me this recipe. She’s been making these sweet rolls for over 20 years and found the original recipe named Ben’s Buns in an old cookbook called Eat, Drink and Be Chinaberry.
A recipe that anyone stands behind for over 20 years is a must-make in my book, so I immediately added a few ingredients to my Instacart order and had these sticky buns in the oven the very next day.
Even though I have never heard of, or tasted these sweet rolls before, my friend Erin confirmed after one bite that these were her Grandma’s Pecan Sweet Rolls. She even got a little emotional because she thought she’d never have them again and now she’s so excited to make them for her dad.
