In bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 tsp honey in the warm water. Let stand until foamy, 10 minutes. By hand, beat in remaining honey, the egg, salt, 2 cups flour, 1/4 cup butter, until smooth, 2 minutes. Stir in remaining flour until soft dough forms.

Let rise 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until doubled.

Punch down dough; on floured surface, roll into 20x12-in. rectangle. Brush with butter; sprinkle with sugar mixture.

Roll up from long side. Cut into 20 (1-in.) slices. Arrange slices in pan, evenly spaced. Cover. Let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Bake 30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool in pan 1 minute.

Invert platter over pan; turn out buns onto platter.

When lukewarm, pull apart into individual buns.

A must-have for breakfast family gathering at our house. Whenever we have more than 5 people over, they now expect me too make this. Thankfully it's fun to make although a little time-consuming.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank linda30 for this recipe.

Would love to see step-by-step pictures with this recipe. It gets a little intense mid-way through.
