My recipe of the day is for pecan sticky Bundtlette muffins with the Bundt Bakers blogging group. We blog together monthly on the third Thursday, and take turns each month figuring out a common theme to bake on.

Pecan Sticky Bundtlette Muffins

This month Wendy Klik of A Day in the Life on the Farm is hosting, and since she is the bosslady, she has asked  us to make muffins in a Bundt pan.

I had never baked such a huge muffin before so started looking through my Bundt pan  collection to see which one  I wanted to use, when I spied my Nordic Ware Bundtlette pan. It has such a nice size for a muffin. Same exact batter capacity, in fact.

Since the muffins will be inverted when they turn out of the pan, I started thinking about what the ramifications were of that.

I thought about sticky buns, and pineapple upside down cakes, etc. I settled on doing a pecan  sticky buns type since when it  turned out, the pecans would be on  top with all the goo.

Not quite as sticky as a sticky bun since those use a  raised dough and these are more porous, but the idea of it gets through.  I just added a little extra caramel syrup for good measure.

I like things really sticky. And you can also customize how much of that you want.

I did size the recipe down by half, since a dozen yield would require 2 pans to bake these up in. Plus being the empty nesters here, I wanted to keep the batch size small, so you will get six. Feel free to double the recipe if you prefer.

  1. Now, I’m regretting not making my cake in a mini Bundtlet pan. These minis would be great breakfast fare as well as a snack.
