Fany Gerson – the Mexican pastry chef who also makes some of the city’s best paletas at La Newyorkina – opened her Bed Stuy donut shop Dough five years ago, and has since developed such a following that she had to open two other locations (4 West 19th Street and 700 8th Avenue inside City Kitchen).

Her giant, pillowy yeast donuts are glazed, dusted, or drenched in a rotating menu of innovative flavors, often inspired by Latin American desserts; the current menu features flavors like hibiscus, chocolate with earl gray, and tropical chili, alongside the more traditional glazed.

There’s really no bad time to indulge in one of these bad boys, but since today is National Dessert Day, and tomorrow is the one year anniversary of the Flatiron outpost, it seems like an especially appropriate time to get your donut and coffee fix.

And tomorrow, the Flatiron location will unleash Dough’s newly launched line of cake doughnuts, with three delectable and mouth watering flavors: Banana Chocolate, Classic Sour Cream and Lemon Butter Milk. If you’re in the mood for one of their classics, no fear: they’ll be giving away a free cake doughnut with the purchase of any other item so you can try the new stuff anyway.

There’s a limited supply, so get there early and start your work day right.
