I have a legendary sweet tooth, and when I got a last minute ticket for New York for a long weekend I knew I had to try some of the best bakeries and other sweets! I love reading the Smitten Kitchen food blog, so I checked out her NY guide and immediately settled on several places I had to try, but I was most excited about The Doughnut Plant – so many amazing sounding flavors! It’s in the Lower East Side and is open every day, so we stopped in mid morning for a quick treat. We split four doughnuts – lavender, creme brulee, blackout, and pistachio. They were amazing! I think creme brulee was my favorite, but next time I want to try apple cinnamon crunch!
