Glory Holes

Perhaps I’ve been spoiled by growing up around Hungarian women who make a treat called Farsangi fánk, which is what I consider to be the perfect doughnut. Sprinkled with powdered sugar, it is a thin shell of sweet bread that is warm inside and nearly melts in your mouth. Its more than just that circular shaped  sugar bread that looks 10 times better than it tastes, at Dunkin Donuts.img_3440

After having started many days with homemade Hungarian doughnuts, Daily Donuts, California Donuts, and the next level treats from Voo Doo Doughnuts, I refuse to eat anything less.

This may be why I’ve spent nearly every morning this week stopping off at The Doughnut Plant.

The damn place is an adorably retro looking space filled mainly with racks and contraptions that i imagine could only be necessary for making doughnuts. It is in a corner of a strip of sad looking shops, and a photography shop that conveniently also repairs shoes. Its across the street from a housing project. If that scares you away from it, then good. You don’t deserve to indulge in a vanilla glazed doughnut, or a strawberry glaze made with real berries, or a square jelly doughnut dipped in a peanut butter melted sugar coating creating what is essentially a Peanut Butter & Jelly doughnut.

  • A big bonus: their decent coffee.
  • A slight draw back:the price. I believe the treats are 2.75 a hole.

    Your photos are great. What happened with your Flickr account? Most of the photos seem to be gone. I loved looking at them!

      Thank you so much!
      I miss using Flickr! Unfortunately my Pro Account was up, and I don’t have the extra money to renew it. Its all been going toward the doughnuts. ha

        When I stumbled on your photos a while ago they inspired me to try my hand at photography (albeit a crappy hand). I may not be that great but documenting my life through photos has brought me a ridiculous amount of joy.

        I see that you screen comments so you can just look at this and not post it:

    holy holey! these look delicious! perhaps it’s in part due to your photo magic but i do trust your deliciousness judgements. voodoo doughnuts was one of my portland highlights, i’ll definitely have to scope this place out! it’s so close to the williamsburg bridge and a really easy bikeride too. really close to that vegan bakery babycakes i go to a bit, and i never even heard of it! thanks!!!
