A great sticky bun is butter-rich, swirly-sweet, yeasty, tender, and fragrant. It is crowded with chopped or whole nuts on top or among the dough, and it is sticky enough that knife and fork are required. Customizations include the addition of marmalade, bacon, berries, and bananas foster. In Iowa and westward, restaurants and bakeries boast of buns that are outlandishly huge. In Washington State at the Poodle Dog restaurant, the sticky bun is known as a butterhorn – a variation that is as large as a dinner plate and scattered with slivered almonds on top.
