Have You Tried the Brioche Doughnut at Mah-Ze-Dahr Bakery?

According to The New York Times, the brioche doughnut at Mah-Ze-Dahr Bakery is NYC’s favorite doughnut. And when the renowned bakery opened an outpost in Navy Yard recently, that beloved pastry came to your neck of the woods. The bakers craft the brioche dough, shape it into fluffy doughnuts, and add just a dash of vanilla pastry cream, then dust the entire confection with a mix of sugar and ground vanilla beans.

The resulting treat typically inspires a line out the door at the new Mah-Ze-Dahr—though that’s also due, in part, to the bakery following strict social-distancing protocols. Order online for pickup or delivery, or walk in with a face covering in place to snag one of the doughnuts. Even if they’re already sold out, you can still try one of the other delicious treats like the brioche cinnamon rolls, the vanilla choux puff pastries, or the Chocolate Explosion cookie, which is essentially a cross between a brownie and a cookie.
