Overnight Pecan Sticky Bread for #BreadBakers

This month's theme for BreadBakers is Overnight Breakfast Breads. Our host for the month is Holly Baker and she wanted us to come up with either a yeasted or quick bread that can be prepared the night before and then baked off in the morning. December being a busy time for celebrations and getting together with family and friends, it is always nice to have these overnight breads in your repertoire, so that you, the bake, can enjoy the fruits (or breads!) of your labor with your loved ones. Scroll to the bottom to get more ideas for overnight bread from my fellow Bread Bakers.
Overnight Pecan Sticky Bread for #BreadBakers
Initially I wanted to prepare a no-knead bread, but then I realized that it involved shaping and baking in the morning which didn't really fit into theme. I couldn't really find any bread that was appropriate for the theme and I almost panicked.

Then I found this Overnight Sticky Pecan Bread in this month's Cooking Light magazine and I jumped in joy. This recipe is just perfect all of the prep is done the night before and all that needs to be done in the morning is to remove the pan from the fridge and bake it off.

This is basically a cinnamon roll recipe topped with sticky pecan topping. I mostly followed the recipe as given except for using some wholewheat pastry flour along with all purpose flour. Also I used egg replacer powder instead of eggs in the recipe. Even with all my substitutions, the bread turned out delicious, soft with lots of cinnamon flavor.
It is best to eat this bread warm but it tasted pretty good even the next day.

Steps

  1. Combine yeast, sugar, milk, vanilla, salt and eggs in a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until well combined.
  2. Add the 2½cups of flour(s) and beat for 8 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Add 4tbsp butter, 1tbsp at a time, beating at low speed until combined after each addition and scraping sides, if necessary. Add the remaining ¼cup of flour to form a nice smooth dough. Transfer dough to a greased bowl, cover and set aside to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  3. Combine 3tbsp butter, 2/3 cup brown sugar, corn syrup and honey in a small saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring just until the butter melts. Boil 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
  4. Pour the syrup into 12cup bundt pan coasted with cooking spray. Sprinkle nuts evenly over syrup. Cool completely.
  5. Whisk remaining 1/3cup of brown sugar and ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Gently press it into 16"x12" rectangle.
  7. Melt 1tbsp butter and brush the surface of the dough with it. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the dough.
  8. Beginning at the short side, roll up the dough, jelly roll fashion, pinch the seam to seal. Carefully lift the roll and fit into prepared pan. Pinch sends together. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  9. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  10. Remove the pan from the fridge and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Bake for 28~30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean and dry.
  11. Cool in pan for 5 minutes on a wire rack. Place a plate upside down on top of pan; invert onto plate. Let cool slightly before cutting.
