How to make Pumpkin Sticky Buns.
My name is Kaitlin and I write the blog I Can Cook That. I started my blog about a year ago as a way to document my progress in the kitchen.
I am still learning each and every day and still primarily look to already-made recipes to prepare a new dish (although I’ve become a bit more confident in the past few months and have begun writing my own recipes as well!) I work full time, so most of my posts are for quick meals that anyone can make on a weeknight, with some longer recipes on weekends.
I’ve recently been on a bit of a baking kick, so I decided to make the perfect weekend breakfast: pumpkin sticky buns with pecans! I combined two recipes to get this dish, the pumpkin cinnamon roll dough is adapted from Good Life Eats and the Caramel Pecan Drizzle is from Cooking Light.
This recipe requires some time, so I’d suggest making these on a Saturday or Sunday. There is a lot of waiting around so this is a good recipe for when you need to do chores or quick errands in between the cooking.

I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful my apartment smelled while making this. The sticky buns lived up to their name, what a mess, but so fun to eat! The pumpkin, cinnamon, caramel and pecan flavors all worked so well together. My one suggestion would be to maybe use a 9×9 pan so that all of the sticky buns hold their shape better when cooking. I don’t mind that mine don’t look perfect though, the flavor was amazing!
