Delicious, Delectable, Delightful- Homemade Donut Shop Grand Opening

SARATOGA SPRINGS – The anticipated opening of Darling Doughnuts happened this past Wednesday, July 29. They were sold out by  11 a.m.

The new Broadway shop operates as a grab and go counter with limited outdoor seating. Owner Natascha Pearl-Mansman designed a rotating menu for the new location, which  features ten different flavors of doughnuts each week. 

Pearl-Mansman creates all her donuts from scratch. She uses brioche style dough, which creates a yeast raised donut. The brioche style gives Pearl-Mansman a neutral base that allows her to get creative with her donut flavors. 

“I have really simply natural recipes and there is actually no sugar in the dough itself, just enough to get the yeast to rise. All of the flavor comes from the glazes and the toppings. And all the glazes and the toppings are made with real fruit and real nuts. Even the cake glazes that I do, such as funfetti, has actual cake that’s in the glaze,” Pearl-Mansman previously said.

The new menu offers full size doughnuts for $3.74 each, mini doughnuts for $2 each and a recent addition of “box of holes” that sells 12 holes for $6. Doughnut flavors range from fruity to savory and all flavors can be found online.

Some menu flavors include: café latte, espresso and cream glazed doughnut with a latte art design; banana split, banana glazed and topped with chocolate banana chips; and even a pizza doughnut, topped with san
marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and pesto, then baked until bubbly. 

“The biggest compliment that I get from people is that it really tastes like you say it will. My donuts taste like what I say it will because that’s what I used to make them,” Pearl-Mansman said.
