Giant hand or mini doughnut? Happy National Doughnut Day

I could not think of a better day to return to this wonderfully neglected blog dedicated to my undying love of doughnuts than National Doughnut Day. Free doughnuts! What a time to be alive… am I right? I’ve returned to New York City for good and I am ready to take on doughnut-hole new world of doughnuts. 

Today I visited a place I knew would not let me down, Doughnut Plant NYC. I returned for my all time favorite, the Tres Leches doughnut. I sit in Seward Park on the Lower East Side wishing it was 10 minutes ago so I could eat it again. 

Pictured above is Doughnut Plant’s way of celebrating this momentus day, a free carnival sprinkles mini cake doughnut… And good things come in small packages.

Here is a cliché Instagram-esque photo of my Tres Leches. If you have yet to visit Doughnut Plant or if you have and haven’t tried the Tres Leches, I suggest taking a trip down there and getting one…dozen.


Sour Cream Glazed Doughnut ?

Ew, that sounds disgusting. That was my initial reaction the first time I ever saw a sour cream glazed doughnut. Coming to Western New York from New York City, there were a lot of thing I wasn’t used to or had never heard of.. Pop, beef on weck, Loganberry, so by the time I had seen the sour glazed doughnut I took it with a grain of salt because everything is different here.

sour cream glazedI don’t remember exactly what caused me to try it, but whether it was a friend’s recommendation or just my own curiosity, I am happy that I did.

I really didn’t know what to expect when I took the first bite, will it taste like sour cream? It doesn’t smell too good.. I eat sour cream on tacos, why would you glaze a doughnut with it? But once I took that first bite I knew I was addicted. I may have eaten one everyday for a good 2 months.

I still don’t understand why it taste so good. I mean sour cream?? Really? Who thinks of this stuff? Thank you, whoever you are.


The Caramel Salted Doughnut

FullSizeRenderWhile at Tim Horton’s the other day, I spotted a new doughnut that I had never seen there before. It was the Salted Caramel Doughnut. I was really excited about this because I love salted caramel things.

The chocolate glaze on it kind of overpowered the other flavors upon first bite but the salted flavor was apparent. It didn’t really have that strong pop of salted caramel that I am used to experiencing with other similarly flavored treats which was disappointing. Don’t get me wrong it was really good and all, it just lacked the strength of flavor I desired. It was really crunchy, which is something different from the other doughnuts I have had from Timmy’s.

Tim Horton’s alway has different specialty doughnuts which vary by holidays or just limited time only flavors.

I’d definitely get it again, but it’s not a favorite.
