SACRAMENTO - At least two local bakeries are putting their own culinary twist on the doughnut, and the result could topple the Cronut in popularity.
Meet the ice cream puff: an ice-cream filling inside a hot, squishy, doughnut.
Among the local establishments selling the confection is The Parlor Ice Cream Puffs in Arden-Arcade.
"My brother and I, we're both really big foodies so this is really just a combination of our crazy imaginations and every food adventure we've ever had," Parlor co-owner Lani Tran said. "We've made it into this thing."
But how do ice cream and fillings get inside a doughnut? Tran is keeping that process a secret.
"We take it to the back, do a little bit of magic, reseal it and that's what you have," she said.
