Well, it is officially spring!  To celebrate the arrival of the warm sun, Farmer's Daughter is introducing a new breakfast pastry called Sunshine Buns.  I have been exploring the tactile wonderland of yeasted and pre-fermented doughs of late, and this is one of the results.  I wanted to make a super delicious soft and doughy breakfast pastry, similar to cinnamon rolls or sticky buns, that said something about the place from which it comes.  To the rescue comes the sweet potato.  I have long made sweet potato yeasted rolls and sweet potato-cardamom monkey bread, and this is essentially the same dough in a different form.  If one is needed, I volunteer for patron saint of the sweet potato.  So versatile, so easily adapted to all manner of recipes and techniques and almost always to their benefit.  You can get your sunshine bun at Carrboro Farmer's Market Saturday mornings or on Thursday mornings at 3 Cups in Chapel Hill by 8:15.
