Longboys – Gourmet finger Doughnuts

Longboys – Gourmet finger Doughnuts

Move over, cronutseclairs, there’s something new must-try dessert in town. Longboys is dreamed up by Graham Hornigold, and Heather Kaniuk, past pastry chefs with experience from the notable Hakkasan, Mandarin Oriental, and Shangri-La. Longboys are gourmet finger doughnuts made in small batches daily at a North London bakery.

Located at the lower stable at Coal Drops Yard, selling Assembly coffee and gourmet crafted doughnuts. Longboys makes brioche-based doughnuts hand-rolled daily into a long finger.

In the end, I picked up a Raspberry Rose Lychee Longboy and sat outside the seating area. The long finger doughnut in a cardboard box reminds me more of éclair or hotdog. The lighter brioche dough holds up the delicious fillings, a thick creamy vanilla custard, hidden raspberry jam, fresh raspberry, lychee fruit, and dried rose petals.

Longboys doughnut is not your typical round-shaped doughnut piped with jam or fillings. Their mission is to not making over the top sugary fillings and they nailed the perfect balance of flavours, light doughnut bread.
