Saturday Doughnut Numero Dos

Black Raspberry Orwasher's Doughnut
Van Leeuwen's brioche doughnut was not the only doughnut I had last Saturday. As I was walking around the Upper East Side, written in chalk on the sidewalk was "Doughnuts, this way" and I just happened to follow the arrow. Then there was a sign "Doughnuts here!" It was the famous Orwasher's Bakery. No one told me there would be doughnuts!

At Orwasher's, you chose between regular yeast doughnut, or chocolate-covered ones. Since I love chocolate, I went there. Then you get to chose your filling! The fillings are mostly-fruit based--I was so excited, I forgot to take a picture--and come from Beth's Farm Kitchen. I had the hardest time trying to choose between black raspberry and sour cherry! I went black! And oh man, do they fill this doughnut! I couldn't eat mine right then, so I gingerly kept it in my bag throughout the afternoon. Thank goodness I was careful with it--one squish and it would have been all over. Don't attempt to just eat this willy-nilly or you'll have filling everywhere! That said, it was freaking delicious--wonderfully fluffy and unbelievably big! I do think that next time I'll skip the fondant chocolate frosting though.
