Claire Saffitz Makes Walnut Maple Sticky Buns | Dessert Person.
Is there such a thing as a sweet, sticky, nutty bun that doesn’t put you down for the count? Claire set out to find it! After much testing, this is her ideal sticky bun, a soft, nutty, maple-y swirl scented with cardamom and orange zest. Claire thinks it’s a whole lot better than a giant, overly sweet Cinnabon cinnamon roll, although - ahem - some family members disagree. It’s a family affair this episode!

Walnut Maple Sticky Buns... It’s a family affair this episode! Which household do you agree with?

I'd rather have these for breakfast, cinnabon for dessert. Something too dense and sickly sweet doesn't agree with me first thing in the morning

Walnut Maple for sure! With the cardamom and orange! What a great recipe! I have tried the coffee coffee cake, the forever brownies, and these sticky buns. Absolutely spot on instructions, and great flavor combinations! Thank you, Claire!

Yeast cannot digest lactose, so it makes no difference as far as feeding it. Brewers add it to beer that they want to keep sweet without having the yeast consume the sugar.

I made these today! Adults loved them; the kid’s reaction was meh. I think they would have liked cinnamon better. Next time I make them I’ll probably flip them as soon as they get out of oven. I waited 5 minutes and a lot of my topping stayed in the pan. I scraped it out though and out it on top.

Hi Claire, love the recipe. Just a small correction, lactose present in milk cannot be broken down by yeast/fermented, as they lack the enzyme lactase. Yeast can only convert glucose and to a lesser degree galactose, both simple sugars that make up lactose. Maybe that’s why it’s harder to dissolve them in milk overall...

Yeast can't actually ferment lactose. It's often added to beer for sweetness as it won't get fermented;

I've just made this and it's the best thing that I've ever made! It's so soft and pillowy that it felt like I was biting into a cloud, and the caramelized sauce combined with the nutty flavor is just heaven. It's my first time making bread and I did not use a machine but it still turns out perfect. My tip is to use a bench scraper when kneading as IT'S EXTREMELY STICKY but you just got to push through and it should form a smooth dough. For the sticky sauce, I don't have maple syrup so I used a mixture of water & golden syrup and it still works!

Based on the way you described it and amount of sugar I would definitely love this. A few years ago I was OK with the Cinnabon and the level of sweetness but since we cut down on the sugar we can't take overly sweet deserts anymore. Truth is that we didn't eat Cinnabon that often before maybe 2 to 3 times a year if that but now would not touch it. As a rule I cut down the sugar in half. Thank you for the recipe! Do you have one that would work with gluten free flour? 💜

I baked these buns this morning and they're not too sweet. Also when you get the part with more of the toasted walnuts, they taste wonderful. I was scared to use too much Cardamom as mine is freshly ground, so I only used half of the recipe, which was a good call 👍. I also added the ammount of cinnamon that Claire suggested.

If you really need an indicator to know the % of proof maybe you can use a cutter, if your dough messure is the same circumference of a 4 inch cookie cutter I something alike, a 6 inch would be a 50% rise and a 8 inch wouls be a 100% rise

Hi! I’ve been trying the recipes & love them, but I have a question. Sometimes the dry measurements, following your directions, don’t match the weights. For example, it will say 1&3/4 cup of flour (228 g) but when I measure 1&3/4 cup of flour, it weighs more than 228g. Which should I go with?

Super confused by written recipe. I used "1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup" brown sugar for sticky syrup. Video didn't clarify. Then I saw there's no measurement for the brown sugar for the filling, and again Claire doesn't say the measurement in the video. :( Was it supposed to be split up? Why was it written so poorly?
