On the corner of Franklin Avenue in Brooklyn, New York, I found what I call ‘the best doughnuts in the world.’
One might ask, how good can a doughnut really be? I mean, any doughnut from Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme would do the job. And spending $2.25 on a doughnut is a bit much. Is it really worth it?
Undoubtedly, the answer is yes. While you stand in lane, the aroma of the doughnut store is a mix between sweet cupcakes and fresh baked bread. As you get closer and closer to the front, you can spot the variety of flavors. From the original glazed to the lemon with olive oil and thyme, you can’t go wrong no matter what you pick. I chose the Café au lait.
As I slowly began to expose the doughnut — given to me in a brown paper bag — I took notice of the sight and feel of this delicacy. The size is bigger than your average doughnut, and the pastry is covered in a light brown coffee glaze. To give the doughnut that extra crunch, walnut and cake crumbles are also sprinkled on top.
In just one bite I was mesmerized by the taste. The feathery doughnut had different layers of thin pastry dough that melted softly in my mouth with the sweet and sharp taste of coffee and crunchy crumbles.
