Our Maple Breakfast Buns are easy-to-make homemade sweet rolls. With their irresistible maple nut topping, you'll earn high marks and nobody will guess that you started with refrigerated crescent rolls.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 (8-ounce) can refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine brown sugar, butter, and syrup in an 8-inch round cake pan. Heat in oven 5 minutes, or until butter melts; stir gently to blend ingredients. Sprinkle pecans over butter mixture.
  3. Remove dough from package (do not unroll dough). Cut roll into 12 slices.
  4. Combine granulated sugar and cinnamon then dip both sides of each slice of dough into sugar mixture. Arrange slices in pan, cut-side down; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Bake 18 minutes, or until golden. Immediately invert pan onto a serving platter and serve warm.

These just beg to be served with steaming cups of our Citrus Tea!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

this are real good after making then the by the recipe I made some more but in place of the pecans I replaced them with bacon that I cup up and fried and everyone just loved them

They sound so good. I'm going to make them for Christmas morning


I am going to use butter pecan syrupi use for waffles. Kroger sells it.

WOW! I love maple in anything.

Any reason I can't put the butter cinnamon and sugar on rolled out dough?

you do. you take the 12 slices & dip each slice (pieces) into the sugar/cinnomin. you don't unroll them, just slice into12 from pk. I read it more than once to clear it up for myself

I made these Maple Breakfast Buns for our church dinner. They were a hit. I made two pans of them and not one came home. They loved them. I used two cans of cresants per pan.

Followed recipe exactly the first time. Second time used same recipe except dipped both ends into the syrup mixture then sprinkled sugar cinnamon mixture per instructions. Really loved it this way. This is a winner and will be used often. Thanks Mr Food.....

I tried these yesterday thwy were very good

You did it again "Mr Food," "Ooh it's so good"!!! And a suggestion for (dlita): Try using 'Grape-nuts' instead of the pecans. I've substituted this in other recipes and it works! Hope this will help you; and your right, the bacon sounds petty good too! :-) Sincerely, Sherry (A fellow cook).

Yummy ! Can't wait to try them

Yum :-)

i need a new stove

sounds great! will make them this weekend

wow yummmm!!! thnks Mr.Food!!you keep the comploments rolling in!!!=)

I omit the pecans and add bacon give it that sweet and saltly and a great change

I can't have nuts anymore - AND YOU HAVE JUST MADE MY DAY with the bacon! I have to do this now!

Fast and delicious!!

My seven year old grandaughter loved helping me make these. They are quick and simple to make and, as my grandaughter said, "yummy in my tummy"! We made them as the recipe called for; didn't feel a need to add anything extra.

Happychef, I love your idea of raisins! Perfect addition to sweet rolls :)

These are great and very fast ,but also add raisins and i use leftover mixtrails after i crushed them it is are out of this world.HAPPYCOOK

Delicious. These are much faster to make that 'monkey bread' or 'pull apart cinnamon rolls'. These will be my new way of doing them. Thank you so much for sharing this receipe.

OMG!!!! This are wonderful and so quick and easy that I was easily able to make them for a weekday breakfast. I did omit the pecans as my children are not very fond of pecans, they weren't missed one bit.

very easy to make and very good! sj charleston, wv

whats even better if you add a handful of raisins with your nuts....

These smell of the buns are better than cooking bacon to wake up sleepy heads. We all love the buns

I like your recipes very much. My son who goes to adult day care on 6th ave near you . He is a brittle diabetic with many health problems. Such as gastro parisis and asofigitis and a TBI) brain injury) I have not got an easy life. I have to weigh and measure every thing that goes into his mouth and count all the carbs to come up with the amount of insulin that he takes. I wish that you could give that info with the foods that you make. My son watch's you every morning his name is Larry. If you ever get the time to stop in at daycare just say hello to him and make his day. He is also a vet. Thank you Mom
