Dutch Sticky Buns

A card which perfectly reflects me at the moment...my constant appetite and my huge crave for sweet stuff even though for a looong loong time i had no need for chocolate/cakes and stuff...right now i developed a big desire for it..and for food in general....i blame it on my way of life in the past month and a half...which still i must say, i totally love it!


So lets see what does it take to prepare these Dutch Sticky Buns....mhhmm mhhmm mhmm...

2 cakes yeast
2 cups lukewarm milk
1/2 cup lukewarm water
2/3 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
8 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
2 eggs
1/2 lemon grated ring and juice
1/4 teaspoons nutmeg

and here how the process goes:

Break and soak yeast in water until soft. Scald and then cool milk. Cream together butter, sugar and salt. Add well-beaten eggs, lemon and spice. Add lukewarm milk to yeast and mix with half the flour. Work in butter and sugar mixture and enough flour to knead into a smooth dough. Keep it as soft as can be handled readily. Let rise overnight at about 80 degrees. As soon as dough is fully doubled in bulk, knead down and let rise again for an hour. Makes three dozen.
Roll 1/3 of the sweet dough into an oblong sheet, 1/4'' thick. Brush with butter and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and cut off 1 inch slices. Place cut side down in greased pan. Brush tops with butter. Let rise until double. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon and chopped pecans or pour com syrup in the bottom of the pan. Bake 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
