NYC — Winter 2015: Doughnut Plant

Sunday, February 22, 2015
Not being really hungry after our lunch at The NoMad, but knowing that we wouldn't be having dinner until after watching The Book of Mormon that night, Austin and I decided to get a snack at Doughnut Plant. I have wanted to check this place out for several years, but never seemed to get a chance to (I usually go to NYC with my mom, and it was just never on our agenda), so I made sure to stop by on this trip since Austin is a doughnut lover. There are multiple places that sell Doughnut Plant's offerings, but we wanted to go to a freestanding store to have the most options available, so we made our way to their Chelsea location.

Clockwise from left: Peanut Butter & Raspberry Jam Doughnut, Chocolate Hazelnut Doughseed, and Crème Brûlée Doughseed

They offer many varieties, but not being a huge fan of cake doughnuts, we focused solely on their yeast ones. We decided to get a square-filled one and two smaller filled doughnuts charmingly called "doughseeds" (they are bigger than typical doughnut holes or Timbits to my fellow Canadians, but smaller than a regular doughnut). It was a difficult decision because when you're in the shop and the smell of sugary baked treats is wafting around you, you kinda want everything. Ultimately, we decided on the peanut butter and raspberry jam filled square doughnut, a pillowy yeast doughnut filled with their housemade raspberry jelly, glazed with salty-sweet peanut butter and topped with a flurry of peanuts; a chocolate hazelnut doughseed, a mini chocolate hazelnut-filled yeast doughnut glazed and topped with hazelnuts that's perfect for any and all Nutella fiends; and their signature crème brûlée doughseed, a plush mini vanilla custard-filled yeast doughnut with a crunchy caramelized sugar glaze that is their most popular doughnut for a reason. All of them are delectable — soft with a nice chew, the perfect amount of filling in each bite, and just the right amount of sweetness; you can't go wrong with any of these. If you're a doughnut lover and find yourself in NYC, this is a must-visit.
