Mark Boughton Photography / styling by Teresa Blackburn PrintEmail Ingredients 3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar3/4 teaspoon cinnamon1/2 cup pure maple syrup12 tablespoons butter, divided2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour1 tablespoon baking powder3/4 teaspoon salt1 cup milk Instructions Preheat oven to 400F. Mix together walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Bring maple syrup and 4 tablespoons butter to boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Boil 30 seconds, then scrape into a 10-inch cast iron or heavy skillet of pan. Top with one-third of walnut mixture. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Add 7 tablespoons butter and mix until mixture resembled small peas. Add milk; stir gently, just until the mixture comes together. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a small saucepan. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently 5 or 6 times. Roll into a 9 x 12-inch rectangle. Brush with melted butter. Cover dough evenly with remaining walnut mixture, patting gently. Roll up dough to for a 12-inch log, pinching seam to seal. Cut into 12 (1-inch) slices and place in pan. Bake 25 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately invert onto a large plate (do this quickly, but carefully—the syrup is very hot). Scrape any syrup from pan and spread over buns. Serve warm or hot.
