Holiday Seasonal Doughnuts from Doughnut Plant – NYC
Ever wish the doughnuts at Doughnut Plant were sweeter? I always find them perfect, but I know some people complain they’re not sweet enough. If you’re one of those people, the seasonal cranberry yeast doughnut ($2.75) is the doughnut for you. Made with fresh cranberries, you’d think this bright pink doughnut would be very tart, but it’s actually more sweet than tart. Hardcore sugar fiends, rejoice! Everyone else, order the cranberry, but get your coffee black, no sugar. It’ll keep your sugar high in check.
A more typical Doughnut Plant seasonal doughnut (in terms of sweetness) is the roasted chestnut yeast doughnut ($2.75). The glaze is thin, not too sweet, with chestnut bits studded throughout. Although more chestnuts would be nice, it’s a nice “light” doughnut.
Both doughnuts are around just for the holidays so act fast if you want to try either. If you get there too late, no fear, a crème brûlée doughnut awaits.

@Nicholas – Doughnut Plant! NOT DP!
That’s what I was talking about. What are you talking about huh?
we tried the cranberry donut last weekend. it was SOOOO SWEET. i would have liked a more tart doughnut better.
@Nicholas – Mr. Innocent all of a sudden, huh?
@TT – I agree! But some people like super sweet…
We love the cranberry donuts at Doughnut Plant this time of the year. It’s certainly one of our favorite spots in NYC all through the year. Perhaps we visit a little more often than we should but we love the peanut butter glaze with blackberry jelly, the blackout and the vanilla bean… okay okay, we love all of them!
I see dolphins.
@Brodsky – Peanut butter and jelly is my favorite. Love it!
