I very rarely...rarely ever take my metro card across the bridge to Brooklyn. And when I do its usually for good reasons, such as eating fabulously of course. This recent trip to Brooklyn landed me with a elaborate freshly cooked brunch by a chef friend of mine, and the added bonus of my baker best friend being in town from D.C. for the weekend. While waiting for the brunch festivities to start, these lovely fresh donuts magically appeared infront of me from a neighborhood favorite, DOUGH in Brooklyn. Who doesnt like donuts? Better question, who would turn down a donut? Not I said Christopher, as I grab a knife and my bestie grabs a napkin so we can sample each flavor in the half dozen box of deliciousness. First off, I am a donut fan. When my local Krispy Kreme shop close down, I wept on the inside for like 2 months. Secondly, sometimes other donuts just dont cut it. I want soft, chewy perfectly fried donuts with wonderful toppings and creative flavors. DOUGH is what Ive been searching fabulously for. Soft, chewy, fresh donuts with toppings that you will not get at your local coffee shop. After sampling a few pieces including the blood orange with a slice of candied orange , I knew after brunch was over, I needed to make a bee line to DOUGH before hoping on the train heading back to the Bronx.
DOUGH is a tiny shop on Lafayette Ave in Brooklyn, nothing big, nothing fancy, but they are producing amazing donuts. New flavors are out on display everyday, so the constant rotation is a great way to introduce customers to try new things. My favorite donut from DOUGH so far is the blood orange with the candied orange slice, although the basic glaze was borderline perfection as well. Run, dont walk to DOUGH fabulous eaters, its certainly worth the train ride.
