ConfeXion Cupcakes and Cakes in Pasadena came up with the famous brioughnut. It’s pretty much a mix between brioche and a donut. I must say, it’s the best effing brioughnut EVER. I made a visit this morning and the line was out the door. I’ve tried their cupcakes already and wasn’t interested in getting any cupcakes. There were three flavors of brioughnuts today. I hate coconut so the lime coconut was out of the question. The simple glazed didn’t appeal to me so I got the nutella crunch. I’ve never tried the nutella crunch cupcake but holy cow, the brioughnut is the business. It’s like a ferrero rocher chocolate candy in donut form. The dough was crispy yet spongy, the top was crunchy, and there was delicious nutella filling oozing out of the brioughnut.
That actually brings me to a funny story. I knew there was filling inside but I didn’t know it was ooze all over my face and partially down my chin when I bit into it. So being the happy fat kid that I was, I decided it was a good idea to eat while I was driving (I didn’t eat anything for breakfast). These are definitely knives and forks cause they ooze. I was at the stop light to turn left on Lake and Del Mar and I bit into my brioughnut. Nutella filling oozed down my chin and I had to reach back to get a tissue. Well..while all that happened, a random guy riding a motorcycle happen to pass me and he actually stopped and asked me through my window (my window was down) where I bought my “donut.” I explained to him that it was a brioughnut and gave him directions. He thanked me and told me that I still had some chocolate on my chin. Thanks motorcycle guy! What would I do without you? -_- Bring extra napkins or use a fork and a knife! As delicious as it was, it was wayyyyy expensive. I’ve never paid more than a dollar or a dollar fifty for a donut. A brioughnut is $5. Yes, you read correctly. It’s more expensive than the cupcakes which are priced at $3.75. I wish they weren’t so expensive so I could make more frequent visits but I guess these are going to have to stay as special occasion treats. They’re so good!! 🙂
