These gooey treats usually take several hours to prepare because you have to wait for the dough to rise. This no-fuss dough uses baking soda and baking powder for fast leavening, without losing any of the buttery cinnamon filling, or pecan topping. These Quick Pecan Sticky Buns are ready in an hour.

  • 1/4 Cup Plus 1/3 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 3 Tablespoons Honey
  • 11 Tablespoons Butter (Melted)

  • 2 3/4 Cups Unbleached Flour
