Pecan Honey Sticky Buns, Part 1

This week’s Tuesdays With Dorie recipe for Pecan Honey Sticky Buns was selected by Madam Chow of Madam Chow’s Kitchen.  The sticky buns are made from a brioche dough.  This was my first attempt at making both brioche and sticky buns, though I’ve made many a cinnamon roll before.  I knew from reading other bloggers experiences that I could expect the dough to be sticky, so as my dough was coming together, I though nothing of how batter-like it appeared.  But when the dough failed to form a ball and pull away from my stand mixer after a good 15-20 minutes on medium-high in the mixer, I knew something was wrong.  My first thought was that maybe I just wasn’t being patient enough.  Sometimes I can be a little on the impatient-side.  (I’m sure The Picky Apple and my parents are getting a good chuckle out of that statement!)  Then I remembered that I was trying to half the recipe…and forgot to half the eggs!  Dough FAIL!  I hate it when that happens.  And of course, I used the last of the butter, yeast, and eggs I had on hand, and it was time to put the baby to bed and then dinner.  I’ll be going to the store this morning after The Littlest Apple wakes up from his nap (assuming he takes one) to purchase new ingredients so I can try this again.  I’m not going to be defeated by the brioche!  Hopefully I’ll be back tomorrow with a photo of some gorgeous looking Pecan Honey Sticky Buns, but for now, check out how everyone else fared at Tuesdays With Dorie!

  1. I’m sorry, I just about spit my coffee when I read “Dough FAIL!” Good luck with part 2!

  2. Oh no! I know exactly how you feel. More than once I have tried to half a bread recipe and ended up not planning it well enough to consistently use half of everything. Well, I hope it works out better next time.

  3. Sorry to read, that you had no luck with your fist trial. I keep my fingers crossed for part 2

  8. Heck, last week I put baking soda instead of baking powder in the madeleines, so I can relate!
