Delicious B. Doughnuts

Last week, I had the pleasure of trying out a new spot in Virginia called The Stand. The Stand is an expansive, colorful outdoor setting for everyone to enjoy the best new food trends the area has to offer. It’s super cute, super affordable, and super delicious! The Stand will not only serve a rotating menu of exciting foods from the hottest vendors around, but will also be a hub for social activities and community engagement.FullSizeRender.jpgFullSizeRender-7.jpg

For their grand opening, I was able to try B. Doughnuts. Oh my- It was a party in my mouth! All of the warm delicious flavors were amazing. Surprisingly, the doughnuts were not as sweet, which is what I love. All the flavors I tried were delicious! – Vanilla bean, Chocolate creme, Lemon curd, Triple berry creme, Glazed, and Everything bagel doughnut with chives. FullSizeRender-1.jpgFullSizeRender-3.jpg

The ingredients are fresh and free from preservatives. Their yeast-raised dough which takes over 12 hours to make is made from scratch.  Their jam is made of real fruits, whips made from premium heavy cream, custards made from real eggs.FullSizeRender-9.jpgFullSizeRender-4.jpg

Established in 2015. With their love of street food and sweets, founders Brian and Pin Chanthapanya wanted to bring Malasadas (Portuguese doughnut) to the East Coast, developing a recipe based off the Hawaiian style Malasada, they wanted to take a hawaiian staple and add their culinary influence growing up on the East Coast as Asian Pacific Americans. Instead of filling their doughnuts with custards and jellies, they decided to use pastry and chantilly cremes, as well as cream cheese based fillings mainly used in pastries In European bakeries.  They pioneered the Everything Bagel doughnut (some will contest this, they chuckle), their take on the New York Everything Bagel while running their Baltimore location which eventually relocated to Virginia.  The dough, glazes, and fillings were first developed in their garage when they were first doing local deliveries around Northern Virginia and today they operate a family-friendly shop in Downtown Historic Leesburg.

Making the sauce from scratch taste even better, however I will be sharing that recipe soon. Apologies for not making these look picture perfect- but I can assure you the flavor and deliciousness makes up for it! Let’s get started!

Ingredients:

  • Refried beans
  • Tortillas
  • Shredded mexican cheese
  • Onion
  • Spinach
  • Green pepper
  • Taco seasoning
  • Garlic powder
  • Enchilada sauce

Directions:

  1. Chop the onion, green pepper, and cut the spinach.
  2. In a large skillet, sautée the vegetables until softened.FullSizeRender-11.jpg
  3. In a large pot, add refried beans and the vegetables.
  4. Add garlic powder and taco seasoning to taste.FullSizeRender-12.jpgFullSizeRender-8.jpg
  5. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  6. In another small pot, add the enchilada sauce and garlic powder and taco seasoning to taste.FullSizeRender-10.jpg
  7. In a large baking tray, spray cooking spray evenly.
  8. Get a tortilla and add a spoon of beans and spread evenly on half of the tortilla.
  9. Add Mexican cheese and roll into an enchilada.
  10. Place on the baking tray.
  11. Repeat until all tortillas are done and placed side by side on the tray.
  12. Pour all of the enchilada sauce over the enchiladas.

Suggestions, Substitutions, Tips & Tricks:

  • You can add whatever you’d like in the bean filling! From chicken, to soy chicken, to just plain beans.
  • Adding hummus to the tortilla gives it flavor- trust me! I was skeptical at first but it taste amazing.
  • Making the sauce from scratch does wonders, however this is a quick and easy version of how to make enchiladas. I will share the longer way coming soon.
