This Doughnut Has An Entire Cinnamon Roll Inside It – Just Yes


Sometimes decisions – especially dessert based ones – are just too tough. Do I want a cinnamon roll or do I want a doughnut?

Don’t worry, thanks to one New York chef you can now have both at the same time.

Mashable spoke to the creator of the Cinnamon Roll Donut, pastry chef Thiago Silva and although it looks like a regular, glazed doughnut from the outside, inside is an entire cinnamon roll – just because.

In an interview with Mashable, Thiago said he first came up with the idea from another doughnut he created, which contained apple pie filling:

I thought the idea was cool if I put a cinnamon roll [inside] but it would have to be raw and cook at the same time as the donut.

After plenty of failed attempts Thiago was able to created a donut that was thin enough to cook the cinnamon roll inside, but thick enough to still hold together.

“[There are] a lot of tricky elements,” Silva said. “It’s easy to get wrong.”

Although he doesn’t work there any more, Thiago’s pastry is still on the menu at ‘Catch’ – in New York’s meat-packing district. In its current form, the donut is served with pumpkin ice cream, a spiced rum sabayon and cranberry pomegranate sauce.

Any plans to bring this over to the UK? Please?
