Say this three times fast: mango-coconut croughnut.
Better yet, skip the tongue twister and get your mouth around the latest Salty Donut creation in collaboration with one of Miami’s best-known chefs, Michael Schwartz. The two have teamed up for a mango and coconut croughnut that takes the best of what each does and puts it into one tempting bite.
Schwartz’s new restaurant, Tigertail and Mary, will be giving out 150 free croughnuts at its new café July 12, starting at 8 a.m., before they go on sale at both Salty Donut locations.
Schwartz, a James Beard award winner long known for his use of seasonal, local ingredients, helped develop this version for Salty Donut as mango season hits full stride.
It starts with the shop’s usual 24-hour raised brioche dough, turned into a croughnut — a combination croissant and doughnut first innovated by Dominique Ansel in New York. It’s rolled in pineapple-infused sugar, filled with mango and coconut custard and topped with dollops of coconut buttercream and chewy pate de fruit candies.
The doughnuts cost $4.75 apiece and will be available July 13-21 at both Salty Donut locations in Wynwood and South Miami.
