Doughnuts remind me of Sunday mornings as a young girl. My mom bribed my sister and I with a trip to the local doughnut shop if we agreed to attend church and Sunday school. Although I love these sweat treats, before this most recent trip to The Doughnut Plant, I honestly would not have been able to tell you the last time I actually had one. I try to keep these fried pastries as a once in awhile treat because they usually leave me with a sugar crash and/or upset stomach after indulging. As massive and delectable as these doughnuts were, there was absolutely no crashing involved and they held us over well into lunchtime. It was definitely worth the morning trek through China town and I will be returning here on my next trip back east to try more of their unique flavors. Perhaps, tres leches or creme brulee!
