I’m glad I married into a Torpedo Factory family. There’s a new food place in the Factory, and they have invented… the bronut.
As fans of portmanteau words might be able to deduce, the bronut ($3.25) is a combination of a brownie and a doughnut. It’s a little more complex than a round brownie: Chang developed a lighter dough that kept the rich chocolate flavor of a brownie while giving it some of the airiness of a doughnut.
It’s baked in the shape of a doughnut ring, of course, which is good news for people like me who are willing to do battle for the corner brownie.
Every bite of the bronut is like having an edge piece, with a slightly crunchy outside and a tender, cakelike interior.
Amazing. Will report back when I consume one.
