So last night I was researching doughnuts, as one does – and saw that Doughnut Plant has a lavender flower doughnut right now. Yum! I am a big fan of flower flavored things. This morning I went to DP (can I call it that?) thinking I would get one yeast and one cake and report back to you lovely people. But I was denied – which only means I will be forced, FORCED, to go back.
Instead, I purchased three cake doughnuts: tres leches, blackout and wild blueberry. The tres leches is my favorite of all their doughnuts. When I buy doughnuts for the office (which happens a lot) I always make sure to buy an extra one for me which I have them package separately in it’s own bag because if I came back with 24 doughnuts and somehow didn’t get one whole tres leches for myself, we would have problems. Tres leches is exactly that – a milk cake doughnut filled with vanilla pudding and dipped in a milk glaze. Somehow it isn’t too rich or too sweet. The creamy center guarantees that it will always have that amazing softness to it. Never disappoints.
I didn’t actually ask for a blackout cake doughnut. I’m not the biggest chocolate person. But the cashier rung it up and there it was in my bag and this is a taste test after all so here we go. The blackout doughnut is a chocolate lover’s dream: chocolate cake, filled with chocolate pudding, dipped in chocolate glaze and sprinkled with chocolate cake crumbs. It’s like the moistest chocolate cake you have ever had. I can’t imagine eating a whole one without a big glass of milk, which isn’t a complaint.
I’m pretty sure they picked these wild blueberries THIS MORNING before shoving them in this doughnut. Yum! I took a bit and then looked at the doughnut, trying to understand what was going on. The cake doughnuts are this lovely balance of what you would imagine from a birthday cake and a pound cake. This doughnut manages to balance that with fresh blueberries and a sweet glaze (used sparingly) which makes for a lovely experience.
If you’re wondering what happened to the rest of the doughnuts, my office-mates were more than happy to help me in this journey. Tres leches is still my favorite. But I thank the other two doughnuts for there participation. All washed down with a cold brew coffee, half-and-half/no sugar. Good morning to me!
