2 pinches salt
500g plain flour
3 eggs

For the filling

225g brown sugar
45g vegetable shortening
1) For the dough: Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4.

2) Cream together the sugar and 45g of butter. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Roll dough out flat into a rectangle. Top dough with 1/3 of the remaining butter. Fold the dough over the butter and put in the refrigerator for 1 hr. Remove the dough, fold again with 1/3 of the butter, and refrigerate for 1 more hr. Repeat folding process 1 more time, using the last 1/3 of the butter.

3) For the filling: Cream the butter. Add the sugar and vegetable shortening and mix together. Add the honey and vanilla and mix well.

4) For the assembly: Put enough filling into each cup of a muffin pan so that it covers the bottom. Sprinkle some pecans over the filling in each cup.

5) Flatten out a piece of dough. Egg wash the surface of the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon powder, sugar, golden sultanas and pecans, to taste. Roll the dough into a log and then cut into 2.5cm pieces. Place 1 piece into each muffin cup. Bake for 10 to 15 mins, or until golden brown. Place the muffin pan on a cookie sheet and flip over. Sticky buns should come out with a rounded caramelised pecan top.
