Yummy! Big, soft, and chewy, not too sweet but with just the right amount of sticky sweetness to hit the spot. Wonderful when served warm.
Gently mix 1/4 cup warm water, 1 tablespoon sugar, and yeast for dough in a small bowl. Let sit to proof until yeast is frothy and nearly doubled in volume, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until it bubbles, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in margarine until melted.
Combine 2 1/4 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon, salt, and yeast mixture in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook; mix well. Add 1/4 cup water, egg, and the warm milk-margarine mixture; mix until combined. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. You may not need all the flour; ideally the dough will remain a bit sticky but should be manageable with floured hands.
Carefully knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth, about 5 minutes. Continue to flour your hands so the dough doesn’t stick to them. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix brown sugar, margarine, raisins, pecans, and cinnamon for filling together in a small bowl. Sprinkle a thin amount of filling on the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish, then spray with cooking spray.
Roll the dough into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle measuring 9x12 inches. Cut into 6 equal strips. Spread each strip with a thin, even layer of filling (too much may be too sweet) and roll up. Transfer to the baking dish. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Bake rolls in the preheated oven until browned, about 20 minutes. Remove from the pan to cool.
Mix frosting, brown sugar, and cinnamon for icing together in a bowl. Pour in melted margarine slowly and mix to a smooth and thick consistency that is liquid enough to pour. Pour a spoonful of icing over warm rolls.

The quality of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different brands do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as white bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it night before , then clear it off the next day.
