Thanks mostly to traffic, and partially timing, my latest impromptu trip to the Donut Plant on the lower east side was thwarted. I had promised my four year old a donut, and wasn't going to disappoint, so we ended up at Dunkin' Donuts on the way home - it's round and cake-like - all the qualities he looks for in a donut.
So it got me thinking - I've lived in NJ for the better part of 6 years, and haven't found a REALLY good donut. In the defense of circular confections everywhere, I haven't done too much looking, but all I have come across are a few bakeries and/ or diners that make one or two pretty good ones - nothing I would go out of my way for.
What I really am in search of is a real donut shop - multiple varieties, mostly yummy.
And I should mention that I live in Summit, and even my gluttony won't make me drive to Cape May for a donut!
