The "Tres Leches" and "Blackout" doughnuts (pictured right) from Doughnut Plant in Manhattan take the cake, quite literally.
If you haven't had these "cake" doughnuts (they're lighter than "yeast" doughnuts) from Doughnut Plant, then you are missing out on one of life's most blissful (and affordable) experiences.
This Lower East Side storefront (more locations coming soon, so check their site) cranks out the best all-natural (and egg-free) doughnuts known to man. My wife and I like them so much we served them at our wedding.
Happy national doughnut day!
