Cinnamon bun with chocolate & pecan nuts

As this week-end has been very rainy and rainy reminding me a lot of Autumn, the weather got me baking !!!

I have located this recipe on cinnamon bun with chocolate & pecan nuts in the latest issue of the magazine "Isabella" (issue August 2019). I have only made a small adjustments on the amount of wheat flour, as the originally level was too low in my opinion.
