Ritz Carlton Amelia Island Sticky Bun Recipe

One of our favorite vacation spots is The Ritz Carlton at Amelia Island, FL. The beach is great but the sticky buns on the breakfast buffet are the highlight of our trips! OMG. They are to-die-for delicious. I kid you not!

I was raving about the sticky buns one morning and one of the waitresses in the cafe gave me a printed copy of the recipe. She said her husband was the pastry chef and invented the sticky buns for the hotel. WOW! I was thrilled to finally be able to eat these anytime I wanted!

How to Make Sticky Buns with Frozen Dough

The original recipe calls for pre-purchased Danish Dough. I researched it and it is hard to get as a consumer. I decided to make this recipe super easy and use frozen cinnamon roll dough. It worked perfectly!

To make these sticky buns, mix together butter and brown sugar in a mixer until smooth. Mix in some honey, corn syrup, and vanilla. Spread the brown sugar mixture into the bottom of a 9×13-inch pan. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Place the frozen cinnamon rolls on top of the pecans. Cover and let rise. Once the rolls are nice and puffy, pop them in the oven and bake. Turn the pan upside down on a platter and enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp corn syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 (36.5-oz) package frozen cinnamon roll dough (12-count)

Instructions:

  • In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, mix together butter and brown sugar until smooth. Mix in the honey, corn syrup, and vanilla on low-medium speed.
  • Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread brown sugar mixture in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Place cinnamon rolls on top of pecans.
  • Cover with plastic wrap sprayed with cooking spray and let rise until double in size, 3 to 5 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Carefully remove plastic wrap and bake sticky buns 15 to 20 minutes, until light brown.
  •  Invert pan on a platter to serve.

Notes:

I used a bag of frozen Rhode’s Cinnamon Rolls. 
Make sure to buy unbaked cinnamon roll dough and not prebaked/premade frozen cinnamon rolls.
Can use light or dark corn syrup.
To have Sticky Buns in the morning for breakfast, prepare through step 2. Cover pan with plastic wrap sprayed with cooking spray. Place the pan in the refrigerator overnight or all day long. When you’re ready to begin baking, take the pan out of the refrigerator. Make sure dough is double in size. You may need to let the product continue to rise slightly at room temperature.
