Boston- Flour Bakery

As I trekked my way through the snowstorm towards Trillium I realized the brewery didn't open for 15 more minutes.  Just enough time to stop into nearby Flour Bakery to warm up with a coffee.

Of course caffeine was just an excuse to check out the baked goods at Flour like Sour Cream Coffee Cake with brown sugar cinnamon swirl, fluffy Brioche filled with pastry cream, Mint Chocolate Oreo Cookies.  Everything looked incredible but it was the famous Sticky Buns that stole my heart.

Chef Joanne Chang beat Bobby Flay in a throw-down challenge with these buns and it's easy to see why. The dough was sweet and buttery studded with cinnamon sugar, honey and toasted pecans then covered with a thick dark caramel sauce on top and even more nuts.  It was ridiculously big, insanely sticky and quite frankly delicious.  A big winner in every way.
