Sourdoughnuts, Doughnut Plant, Brooklyn
I've reached the point of over-saturation of doughnuts recently. With Du Donuts within easy reach I have taste-tested to an unseemly extent. The staff recognizes me too easily. They have both yeast and cake donuts but I always go for the cake. Now Doughnut Plant has also moved a few blocks from home. When Doughnut Plant only existed on the deep Lower East Side I would trek in for just a taste of their incredible chai tea, ladled out of a crock pot and infused with the best spices on earth. No chai compares. Now it's just around the corner and I can't stop the visits! And although I had decided to abstain from a Doughnut Plant full donut immersion, I discovered their new brilliant invention, The Sourdoughnut. It's incredible. Each yeast doughnut is spiked with that distinct sourdough flavor, bringing down the sweet factor and letting the fruity flavors (like apricot!) sing. I've tasted a few flavors now and they're so flavorful. Doughnut over-saturation is now forgotten!
