Thanks to innovative food hybrids like the Nugcho, the sushi burrito, and the buffalo chicken lasagna, we live in a world where we're no longer limited to eating one delicious food at a time. And now, someone's finally solved the delicious dilemma of having to choose between either a cinnamon roll or a donut by combining the two pastries into one: the Cinnamon Roll Donut. Cronut, take notice.
Believe it or not, these fistfuls of cinnamon and sugar combine an entire donut with an entire cinnamon bun that comes seamlessly baked right in the center. Enough said.
Obviously, we had to get out mouths on these things, so we contacted the mastermind who makes them, Chef Thiago Silva. He created the Cinnamon Roll Donut while serving as pastry chef at Catch in NYC's Meatpacking District. But now, he's working on opening a location where he can sell the donuts, and presumably other cool things -- "coming soon," he said. Until then, Silva said the donut is still available on Catch's dessert menu. But he brought us the latest version of the donut, topped with streak of cinnamon crunch and drizzled with cream cheese frosting. They didn't last long.
