  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water and let stand for about 10 minutes until creamy. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix and flour.

  2. Slowly add the yeast and water mixture and stir until smooth. Cover the bowl and let dough rise for 1 hour in a warm place until doubled in volume.

  3. Grease a 10×15-inch baking pan with high sides, or two 9×13 inch pans. With a spatula, scoop the dough out onto a heavily floured surface.

  4. Dust the top and roll or pat the dough into a large rectangle, about 12×24 inches. Brush dough with the melted butter or margarine.

  5. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over the dough. Roll up dough jelly-roll fashion and seal edges with a little water.

  6. Cut the roll into 1½ to 2-inch slices. Place snugly into the prepared pan.

  7. Let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until doubled.

  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  9. While rolls are rising, combine butter or margarine, corn syrup and brown sugar in a heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat.

  10. When rolls have risen, pour the syrup over the tops of the rolls, letting it dribble down into the pan.

  11. Sprinkle rolls with pecans and bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
