Colson Patisserie's fantastic Chocolate Brioche Suisses has captured my weekend breakfast attention of late. This past weekend I arrived earlier than usual and my brioche plan was derailed...by a doughnut...
Like their neighbor Almondine, Colson also makes raspberry jam stuffed doughnuts. Quantities are extremely limited--the guy behind the counter told me that they only make 10 to 12 doughnuts.
Soft and tender these doughnuts didn't have quite as much filling as the ones at Almondine and Lawman felt were a little bit heavier. The dusting of powdered sugar bought a welcome bit of sweetness. While I don't know that these doughnuts will eclipse the brioche suisses, there's nothing like a fresh doughnut on a Sunday morning.
