Ultimate Sticky Buns

I want to make something special since it’s end of June. We are halfway done  for the year 2013. 2013 is a special year for me since this is the year that I want to focus on what’s only necessity in life. And think I’ve done that for the past six months. So for a breakfast treat,  I want to make my first sticky buns. I found this recipe from Epicurious.

For some reason my dough didn’t rise much on the first rising. The instant yeast is good but I think the water temperature wasn’t warm enough when I added the eggs straight from the fridge.

The only thing I changed is the corn syrup with the maple syrup.

This recipe got a lot of butter. While I really want to follow to the T, I just couldn’t fit all the butter.

I’m not sure if they are supposed to look like this. I got only 8 buns instead of 12.  I left them overnight in the fridge.

Out from the oven.  Now I know why other reviews say something of making more syrup and brush them before inverting them.

I was worried that the buns will turn out dense but they turned out just fine but not as fluffy as I was expecting. I don’t know if it was because it didn’t rise much on the first. They tasted good though.
