Are doughnuts the new cupcake?  I know they have been around( good ol' Krispie Kreme and Dunkin Donuts,  yes, I love their coffee!) , but lately I have had ( and it seems like I'm not the only one) doughnuts on the brain.  It could have something to do with an amazing little doughnut shop, Revolution Doughnuts, that popped up around the corner from me in July.  I may or may not have been there, um, about 10 times.
These new breed of doughnuts are, well, fancy.  Boasting vegan, gluten free, and organic varieties chocked full of fresh seasonal local ingredients these new doughnuts give those complex cupcakes we have all been snacking on for the last few years a run for their money.  Salted Caramel, Bacon Caramel,  Almond, Nutella Creme Puffs, Figgy Sliders, Banana Cream, Pumpkin Ginger, Dark Chocolate, and the list goes on and on.  Just about any flavor you can think up can incredibly be translated into a doughnut.  I don't know about you but I  may just have to treat myself and line up this ( looong) weekend for a my favorite round pieces of dough heaven....( ahem, almond cake style and vanilla bean yeast style).  How about you? Team Doughnut or Team Cupcake??
