If the sight of a rack of perfectly made, cooling yeast doughnuts (like, say, the picture above) makes you get all Homer Simpson, then we have some good news for you. The Doughnut Plant, which has already conquered Manhattan with its square-shaped yeast doughnuts, is opening up its first outpost in Brooklyn on Wednesday.
The shop announced via Facebook that its new storefront in Prospect Heights, just a couple blocks south of the Barclay’s Center, would be opening its doors to the public at 6:30 am on Wednesday. (Former Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz already stopped by the place to give his blessing.)
The Plant’s new location opens just in time for New Yorkers to snap up some of their insanely delicious-sounding holiday doughnuts. Flavors include marzipan, pomegranate, gingerbread, triple chocolate mint, and panettone. Or you can go with some of the filled square standbys, like peanut butter and blackberry jam, coconut cream, or peanut butter and banana cream. For the adventurous, there’s even a Mexican sauce-inspired Mole doughnut. Not to be disloyal to our beloved Dough, but me might have to do a serious taste test of these delectables.
The Doughnut Plant’s new Brooklyn location is at 245 Flatbush Avenue.
