Perfect pillows of glazed dough await for you at this new Chelsea outpost of Doughnut Plant. They have two different kinds of doughnuts, yeast and cake and just enough tables and chairs to enjoy some coffee or tea, too. On this particular visit, we sat down to enjoy two yeast ones: Pumpkin (round) and Peanut Butter and Jelly (square). What I love more than anything about Doughnut Plant’s goods is that they are not overly sweet. The glaze adds just enough sugar, but the cake is synonymous with brioche. The pumpkin doughnut has toasted sunflower seeds adorning it, while the peanut butter and jelly has chunks of peanut caught in its sticky glaze. I wish this plant would grow in my garden.
