A $100 Dollar Doughnut?

Here’s something to help your more upscale patrons spend their money with you. We’ve recently found out about a $100 donut at the Manila Social Club in Williamsburg. There’s nothing that screams tasty more appropriately than gold flecks, Cristal, and ube, right? Bet that’s not something that’s going to see the deep fryers at your restaurant any time soon.

It’s a crafter’s dream, too. The batter is made from a mixture of ube and regular flour – ube is a sweet, purple yam. There is mousse made from champagne, and there are gold sheets and flakes laid into the donut. Because gold flakes are the ultimate in tasty, right?

These donuts are incredibly sweet with the champagne frosting, something to be remembered, along with the money that’s being spent on the donut. One of the uses for this donut has been for those who want to do wedding proposals. That’s an excellent use of a deep fryer, right?

If you’re not feeling the gold flaking, but still want the yam, you can get the ordinary donut for a mere $3.50. Quite the deal when compared to the deluxe version. So, if you’re in the mood to make something a little exotic for your patrons, ube might be the way to go, but skip the gold foil.
