Honey Bun Custard Pecan Pie

I told a lady where we get a truckload of pig delights (old bread and sweets) occasionally,  that I would give her a recipe for a Honey Bun Cake.  I really thought I saw a recipe, somewhere or another,  that used Honey Buns to make a cake.

Since I couldn't find one,  I decided to try and make something yummy from that box of honey buns.  The result was a egg custard pecan pie.  It is YUM!  The only thing is I made it in a 10" spring form pan and it should have been in a smaller pan for the amount of ingredients in the recipe.  That said,  Here you go...

Honey Bun Custard Pecan Pie

6 Honey Buns, cut in cubes.  I toasted them in the oven for 5 minutes or so, at 350 degrees, to dry them out a little.
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
single pie crust optional, it stands fine without it but just a little moist

I cooked mine in a spring form pan.  You can use a pie pan if you wish.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cut honey buns into cubes.  Place on a greased cookie sheet and cook for 5 minutes, of so, to dry out a little.
Beat eggs, milk, cinnamon, brown sugar and nuts.
Add honey bun cubes and soak for 5-10 minutes.
Pour into desired greased pan, or pie crust.
Cook for 20 minutes and turn around in oven.  Cook another 20 minutes and check. Mine took 50 minutes to cook.  It is done when set and toothpick comes out clean.
It will rise and then deflate as it cools.
As always, My oven cooks different than yours.  Always check before earliest time and adjust time accordingly.
