The Legendary Banana Walnut Upside Down Sticky Buns

Recommended Posts

Make these at your own peril.  You've been warned. 🤗



1 cup whole milk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, 1/2 stick 3⁄4 oz instant yeast, 1 packet
1⁄3 cup granulated sugar
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed
4 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
2 tablespoons oil



4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon



1⁄2 cup unsalted butter, 1 stick 1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

1⁄4 cup honey
1 cup walnuts, chopped



• In a large, microwave-proof bowl, combine the milk and melted butter. Microwave for 40 seconds, until the milk mixture reaches 110 ̊F (45 ̊C). Add the yeast, then let sit for 10 minutes.


• Add the granulated sugar, salt, mashed bananas and stir.


• Add 3 1⁄2 cups (435 g) of flour, 1⁄2 cup (60 g) at a time, stirring between each addition.


• Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for 3 minutes, adding more flour 1⁄4 cup (30 g) at a time if the dough is sticking to your hands or the surface. Form the dough into a ball.


• Add the oil to clean large bowl and place the dough in the bowl. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, or overnight, until doubled in size.  Once the dough has risen, roll it out to a 1⁄4-inch-thick (6-mm) rectangle about 18x12 inches (20x30 cm).

• Make the filling by mixing the melted butter, granulated sugar, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Spread the filling evenly over the dough. Roll up the dough and slice into 15 11⁄2-inch (4-cm) thick slices (discard the ends).


• Make the caramel sauce: In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter, brown sugar, salt, vanilla, and honey. Keep stirring to prevent the sugar from sticking to the pan. Bring to a gentle boil, then remove the pan from the heat.


• Pour the caramel sauce into a 9x12-inch (23x30-cm) baking dish and sprinkle the walnuts on top of sauce. Arrange the rolls in the dish so there are 3 rows of 5 rolls.  Cover with plastic wrap and let the rolls rise for 15 minutes, in a warm place.

• Preheat the oven to 350 ̊F (180 ̊C).


• Remove the plastic wrap and bake the cinnamon rolls for 40 minutes, or until light golden brown.


• Let cool for 20 minutes, then invert the rolls onto a serving platter. Leftover cinnamon rolls can be stored up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
