Try chocolate lanay donuts from this Taguig bakery

If you're curious to try a local version of the donut (and if you consider yourself a chocoholic as well), check out Project Lanay – they sell Kawasan Falls' popular "lanay donuts," which originated in Cebu.

Lanay means "melt" in Bisaya which clues you in to the texture of each treat. Inside each donut is a smooth mix of rich, melted dark chocolate, with a taste close to native tablea.

The chocolate donut dough itself is firm and dense, and made from locally-sourced cocoa powder. The stuffed donut is coated lightly with a chocolate glaze made from unsweetened cocoa powder, and then coated in more cocoa powder for powdery texture.

Project Lanay brought Kawasan Falls' delicacy to Manila after they "tweaked the texture and the taste to best suit the palates of the people here in Manila," and to make it possible to be shipped in containers without the danger of filling spills.

A box of 6 costs P150, while a dozen sets you back P220 (it'll be P240 starting December 1). Chocolate is their only flavor as posting, but they plan on adding to their menu soon.

Project Lanay, which was founded in late October 2020, is also a social enterprise that aims to support different social causes every month using proceeds from their donut sales. For November, proceeds will be going towards donations for Typhoon Ulysses' victims.

Project Lanay is based in Taguig. You can place your orders via Instagram. – Rappler.com
