Instructions:

  1. Tang Zhong: In a small saucepan, combine water and bread flour. Cook over medium heat, stirring until the paste thickens. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Brown the butter: Brown about 90 g of butter, let it cool and soften.
  3. Prepare the dough: In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine all the dough ingredients, including the cooled browned butter. Mix with a dough hook, starting on low speed and increasing to medium speed, for about 10 minutes or until smooth.
  4. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  5. Prepare the filling: During the last 30 minutes of the dough rising, prepare the topping. In a lined 9×13-inch pan, spread the chopped pecans. In a saucepan, combine the butter, milk, vanilla, brown sugar and maple syrup. Bring to a boil for 2-3 minutes, then remove from heat. Let cool slightly, then pour over the pecans in the pan.
  6. Assemble the rolls: Roll out the dough on a surface into a 12×19-inch rectangle. Spread softened brown butter over the dough, then sprinkle evenly with the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Roll the dough and cut it into 12 slices. Place the slices on top of the caramel layer in the pan.
  7. Cover with a cloth and let rise for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  8. Bake at 350°F (175°C) for about 25 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned.
  9. Let cool slightly, then carefully invert the pan to flip the rolls so the pecan filling is on top.
