    Pineapple Jam & Oolong Tea Ganache Cronut

    Today is my wife’s birthday so to kick it off I got her favorite pastry ….. the world famous Cronut from the Dominique Ansel Bakery. The flavor for July 2023 is Pineapple Jam & Oolong Tea. Chef Dominique Ansel invented the cronut in 2013, it’s a hybrid of a croissant and a donut. While the cronut is 10 years old it is still incredibly popular. I placed a pre-order but on a Monday in the summer there are plenty of Cronuts available. The presentation was typical cronut perfection. Layers of flaky, buttery dough dipped in sugar, topped with bright yellow icing and garnished with a small dusting of oolong tea.…

    Banana Pudding Doughnut @ Krispy Kreme

    Krispy Kreme sent me an email that their limited time Strawberries and Kreme Doughnut and Banana Pudding Doughnut would be free on June 20th. I happened to be at Macy’s that day and figured I would duck into Penn Station and grab the Banana Pudding Doughnut. As you may know when you order 1 or 2 donuts Krispy Kreme puts them into a very slim bag. This results in a donut that is less than picturesque by the time you get it home. I was amazed that this one made it home unscathed during rush hour in Manhattan. Krispy Kreme describes the Banana Pudding Doughnut as “a sweet banana custard blended…

    Coconut Donut @ Dunkin’ Donuts

    Donuts are hands down my favorite food category. Dunkin’ Donuts happens to be my favorite coffee so I go there daily. And every day I have to fight off the urge to buy a donut. Most days I win the will power battle but on Sundays I give in to temptation. Being a huge coconut fan naturally the coconut cake donut is one of my all time favorites. Coconut donuts seem to be common place in the suburbs but finding them in NYC is more challenging. When I moved into my current residence in Murray Hill neither one of the local Dunkin’ Donuts sold coconut donuts. One quick online feedback…

    Dunkin’ Donuts Pumpkin Munchkin

    My wife and I were walking around Greenwich Village after dinner one night when she had a sudden craving for coffee. She only drinks Dunkin Donuts coffee and there happened to be one about a block away.  While ordering her coffee I saw the Pumpkin Munchkins and had to try them. From Dunkin Donuts’ website, “Pumpkin Donut and MUNCHKINS®: Guests can savor the season with the glazed pumpkin cake donut, which can also be enjoyed as a MUNCHKIN donut hole treat. The Pumpkin Munchkins had a brown/orange color and were half covered with glaze. Biting into the munchkin my mouth was treated to an explosion of cinnamon and spice. The…
