I wish I could take credit for this, but a friend invented this dessert and it changed my life. I think if you remove the cultural biases around cooking with Krispy Kreme doughnuts and store-bought ice cream, this dessert could go toe to toe with anything in a Michelin-starred restaurant. It works with any glazed yeasted doughnut, but I do prefer Krispy Kreme. I keep a box of them in the freezer, so I can pull this out any time. - David Chang

1 glazed yeasted doughnut, preferably Krispy Kreme
2/3 cup vanilla ice cream
  1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop the doughnut in the pan, and cook for a few minutes on each side.
  2. Once the sugar begins to pull like caramel, and the doughnut is crisp on both sides, it’s done.
  3. While the doughnut cooks, melt a couple spoonfuls of ice cream in the microwave. Boom, you’ve just made the very fancy-sounding crème anglaise, which is what melted ice cream really is.
  4. Place in the bottom of a bowl. Top with the doughnut, and the rest of the unmelted ice cream. Enjoy.
