  • 1 cup warm water 115 degrees is perfect
  • ¾ cup buttermilk- room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 5 tbsp butter- melted & slightly cooled
  • 3 tbsp dry active yeast
  • ½ tbsp table salt
  • 2 large eggs- room temperature
  • 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  • cup butter- melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup bacon crumbles

Melted Butter, Caramel Sauce & more bacon for topping when serving if desired


    • In a large mixer bowl, combine water, buttermilk, sugar, melted butter & yeast, stir & then allow to sit approx 15 minutes for yeast to proof. (you know it's ready when it's puffed & frothy)
    • Add in eggs, salt & flour & mix together slowly using a dough hook until flour is incorporated
    • Mix/knead 10 minutes
    • Once mixed, let rest 10 minutes while you make your filling & preheat the oven
    • Prepare the filling by combining melted butter, brown sugar, sugar & cinnamon in a small bowl & mixing with a fork
    • Prepare the topping by melting brown sugar, butter & honey in a saucepan.
    • Remove from heat & add in pecans & bacon
    • Pour into the bottom of your prepared pan
    • Preheat oven to 375 degrees & line a 9x13 pan with parchment
    • Roll dough out on lightly floured surface into a flat & even layer (approx 12x15)
    • Sprinkle filling mixture on top
    • Roll tightly on the long side & then cut into 12 large rolls (easiest way to make them even is to first cut the log in half & then cut those two pieces in half again & then those 4 pieces into thirds)
    • Place in prepared pan on top of your gooey topping & bake 20-25 minutes
    • Add melted butter, caramel sauce & more bacon for topping when serving if desired
