Pecan Sticky Buns & Poppyseed Pastries

josquared | Mar 12, 2011 10:52 AM

I figured I'd kill two pastries I have a weakness for with one rolling pin

1) Pecan Sticky Buns - so far the ultimate version I've found is at Fat Angel in Fairfax, followed closely by one at Tartine. Also had one at flourChylde in Novato that was pretty darn tasty. I've also had some wretched ones at Peet's (no explanation needed) and Panama Red in Vallejo (these should NOT have chunks of fruit in them, IMHO)

Any other versions that might be noteworthy around the area?

2) Does anyone have a poppyseed twist or braid in the Bay Area like they do at Pure Grain Bakery in Vacaville?
