The word on the street is that the doughnut is the new cupcake. At Fulton Market in Chicago’s West Loop, a pastry chef’s vision is bringing the rumor full circle, no doughnut holes barred.
Glazed & Infused is cranking out doughnuts that aren’t just for breakfast anymore. The flavors range from the Bismark Special, Cinnamon-Sugar Cake and Honey Wheat to the Chocolate3 and Red Velvet. More important, though, is the protein that the Maple Bacon Long John brings to the table, which adds to the nutritional balance of the most important meal–or snack–of the day.
If peppered bacon and maple syrup isn’t your thing, consider Crème Brûlée. The best part of that dish is the crunch on the top, right? The kids at Glazed & Infused just love their kitchen torch and they take full advantage here. The crème brûlée Bismark with vanilla cream is torched to burnt sugar perfection.
If you don’t leave with sugar overload, that’s your problem. If you add a hot mug of Intelligentsia coffee you get the added bonus of a caffeine jolt. Click play on the video above to join Food Channel’s Jim Kelley for one SWEET ride!
