Sunday morning was spent sprinting round Prospect Park with B before heading up to Williamsburg to explore this ultra-hipster neighborhood.
We walked with our (absurdly good) coffees from Sweatshop Café up to the Flea Market on Kent Avenue. Meandering between the stalls of vintage furniture, fur coats and what B described as 'clutter', we eventually sniffed out the Dough Doughnut stand.
Having managed to resist these fried rings of light and crispy dough multiple times now, after a long Sunday morning run it was time to give in to temptation.
Choosing between the traditional glazed and cinnamon sugar, or the more exotic hibiscus, toasted coconut and chocolate with cocoa nibs, we finally settled on the dulce de leche with toasted almonds. After a brief photoshoot for this doughnut ring which was as big as my face, we bit in, and fought over every last bite.
The dough was airy and not too sweet, leaving plenty of room for the rich, luxurious dulce de lece glaze to shine (and stick to my teeth), while delicate shards of almond gave a tiny little crunch to counteract the squidgy goodness of this perfect doughnut.
