  • Summary

    There is very little white sugar in these not-just-for-breakfast buns -- but you won't miss it. Honey imparts its smooth, mellow sweetness to every component: the rich, buttery dough, the tangy creme fraiche filling, and the appealingly sticky topping.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
    • 1/3 cup warm water
    • 1 cup whole milk, room temperature
    • 8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1/3 cup honey (any type)
    • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 5 to 6 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
    • Vegetable oil, for bowl
    • 4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter
    • 1/2 cup honey (any type), plus more for brushing and drizzling
    • 1/2 cup corn syrup
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
    • 1/2 cup creme fraiche
