If we generously overlook presidential candidates with blond second-hand hairdo’s and an intellect-allergy and a few other bits and bobs, we can all agree: many good things come from America. What Homer Simpson, Dexter Morgan and – according to the cliché – innumerable American police officers have known for a long time and are spreading into the world: One of the best exports from the states is the American punctured pastry, commonly known as the donut. Now Berlin just wouldn’t be Berlin if it didn’t offer a contemporary adaption of the sweet and glazed yeast dough pastry. Last weekend, the passionate bakers Bram and Jessica opened Europe’s first vegan Donut shop at the Maybachufer. What began as a small present for a birthday party has now become a business model for the two friends of the loop. After their creations gathered fans at various markets, they have now made their colourful dream come true with this small café. The long queue at the opening and the happy-yet-distressed post on facebook at 4 pm – „We are sold out of Donuts for now“ – go to show that there is a donut beyond all the grease! The 29 variations of Brammibal’s Donuts, from Speculatius to chocolate with pretzels, from matcha to blueberry-vanilla to vegan bacon with coconut, all do without animal content or additives but with plenty of great taste. Well howdy, that’s finger licking awesome or something along those lines!
