Step 1

In a large bowl, combine
cake mix and 3
cups flour; stir to mix
thoroughly. In medium
bowl, stir yeast into 1/2
cup warm water. Add to
cake and flour mix. Add
remaining 2 cups warm
water and mix into
Add remaining 2
1/2 cups flour to make dough pliable.
(You'll want the dough to be workable,
a little sticky). If necessary, add a
little more flour to get consistency
In small bowl, mix melted butter, sugar, and corn syrup. Mix until lumps are gone and the consistency of caramel. I use a wire whisk to incorporated the butter and brown sugar. Divide sauce between 2 pans 11 x 15 x 2. Divide pecans between 2 pans.

Divide dough
in half. Roll one half into rectangle
about 1/4 inch thick. Measure 15 x 10 rectangle. Spread melted butter over rolled out dough. Sprinkle 2 Tablespoons cinnamon and 1/2 cup white sugar evenly over dough. Make sure dough is covered with cinnamon and roll
dough from long side.
Cut into 1/2 inch thick slices and
place on caramel mixture and pecans cut side
down without sides touching. Repeat
with other half dough.You should have 12 rolls per pan. Cover rolls and
set aside to rise again
until double in size. Bake
at 375 degrees for 15 to
20 minutes.
Remove from oven and place cookie sheet over pan and flip pan over allowing caramel and nuts to cover rolls. Scoop any excess up and put on rolls. Let cool for 20 minutes
and drizzle with powdered
sugar icing.


3 cups powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla

3 tablespoons milk

In small bowl combine above ingredients
and stir until well blended and
drizzling consistency.
