A Doughnut A Day

19 Dec

Yesterday I stopped by one of my favorite places on Earth, The Doughnut Plant. Owner Mark Isreal bakes and sells doughnuts on the Lower East Side using his grandfather’s recipe from the 1930’s.

The Doughnut Plant sells both cake doughnuts and yeast doughnuts, and the flavors change often depending on the season. Currently the seasonal flavors include Pomegranate, Panetton, Marzipan, Roasted Chestnut, and Gingerbread.




Tres Leches and Coconut Cream are two of my favorites that are always on the menu. Yesterday I also spotted a Peanut Butter Glazed Doughnut with Blackberry Jelly that looked right up my alley. Mmmmmmmmm doughnuts…..


Streetside Treats

29 Nov

I had a very lazy Sunday, mostly spent in my pajamas in the warm comfort of my apartment (it’s getting COLD out there!), but I did take a long walk in the late morning, the highlight being when I popped into Locanda Verde for a snack. Locanda Verde is a cute new Italian cafe in TriBeCa. Pastry chef Karen DeMasco’s pastry counter is stocked with all manner of delectable muffins, scones, cakes, and tarts. I was tempted by the alluring pumpkin-spice bread, but instead devoured a very moist glazed apple-cider doughnut, and was in sweet treat heaven.
