The Doughnut at Bouchon Bakery

Saturday mornings are good for many things...quiet walks in the park before the Shake Shake line forms, a delicious cappuccino at Caffe Lavazza inside Eataly and if your very lucky some fresh doughnuts from Bouchon Bakery.

I've heard about these for years but never arrived early enough to snag one for myself.  Maybe they made extra this past Saturday or maybe everyone was downtown in the Cronut line.  Who knows- who cares!  I finally got to enjoy one!

This brioche doughnut was incredibly fluffy and light, studded with black and white sugar cookies balls up top and filled with a luscious vanilla creme inside...not nearly as dense as a custard, the creme was smooth and flecked with real vanilla beans.  The woman behind the counter called this their Boston Creme but that name just doesn't do justice to how exquisite this pastry truly is.  It's a complete work of art and an incredible way to start a Saturday.
