Sugar Rush: Lemon Pistachio White Chocolate Donut at Whoo's Donuts, Santa Fe

Sweets cakespy 1 comment

While all of the crispy-crusted cake donuts are crave-worthy, you'll find a real shining star in the Lemon Pistachio White Chocolate variety. The extreme sweetness of the white chocolate is tempered by a hint of lemon zest and beautifully complemented by the salty pistachio bits. When all of these flavors come together in a bite with the perfect crunch of the craggy donut exterior, giving way to its fluffy but substantial interior, you may experience donut nirvana. More

Crispy, cakey, chocolaty, coconuty, pop-in-your-mouth doughnuts that are super easy to make? What's not to love? More

Entenmann's Chocolate Cake Donuts

Serious Eats Caroline Russock Post a comment

Entenmann's excels at cake donuts. Frosted, glazed, crumb topped or coated with loads of confectioners' sugar, all of the varieties are pretty great. So this recipe for Entenmann's Chocolate Cake Donuts obviously came with some pretty high expectations. More

Gluten-Free Doughnut Bites

Serious Eats Elizabeth Barbone 4 comments

Inspired by Dunkin Donuts' Munchkins, these doughnut bites are actually cake doughnuts instead of the traditional yeast-raised doughnuts. You can squeeze a little jam into the finished doughnut holes. Especially great if you're celebrating a gluten-free Hanukkah! More

Lexington, KY: Exceptional Doughnuts from Spalding's

Sweets J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

"The first time I read about Spalding's Doughnuts, all I could think was these sound remarkably like Georgie's," Ed told me. Georgie's was a personal favorite of Ed's—a Harlem doughnut shop that's been closed for about a decade now. Irregularly shaped, airy, full of stretchy nooks and crannies and an unusually thick, crisp crust, these are the kind of doughnuts that are the aesthetic opposite of the perfectly round factory-stamped shape of the major chains.

First Look: Federal Donuts in Philadelphia for Fried Chicken and Donuts

Caroline Russock 3 comments

Fried chicken and donuts, together at last? Sure, we were predisposed to love Federal Donuts based on concept alone, but these guys are doing it right with chicken and donuts that are not just well-executed and totally delicious but thoughtful and exciting. If you want to try Federal Donuts, do yourself a favor and get there early. More

A Sandwich a Day: Grilled Cheese Donut and Others from Tom & Chee's in Cincinnati

A Sandwich a Day J. Kenji López-Alt 7 comments

Grilled cheese is now the official overplayed food trend of 2011 and for the most part, it's not been a good one. Why anyone would pay up to $9 for the world's simplest sandwich—one that nearly anybody can make twice as well at home for under a quarter of the cost—was utterly beyond me, and I had little reason to expect that Tom + Chee, the three-location mini chain in Cincinnati would be any different. Turns out that this is a grilled cheese concept that actually works. More

American Classics: Potato Doughnuts

Sweets Alexandra Penfold 7 comments

Legend has it that Maine sea captain Hanson Gregory put the hole in the doughnut so to speak. Variations on the story abound, but my favorite version has Captain Gregory impaling the fried pieces of dough on his ship's steering wheel for easier snack access. Whether that's true or not is left to the ages, but what's undisputed is Maine's long standing love affair with the doughnut. More

Potato Doughnuts

Soft and tender, with a hint of spice, these doughnuts lack the heaviness that often accompanies cake doughnuts—you'd never guess that they're spud powered. More

Mixed Review: Stonewall Kitchen's Apple Cider Doughnuts

Sweets Lucy Baker Post a comment

While I've always loved apple picking, my favorite part isn't really the fresh fruit—it's the warm, cinnamon-dusted cider donut I devour on the way home. Crunchy on the outside, tender within, and boasting genuine apple flavor, nothing says "fall" quite like cider donuts. But could all of that authentic, farm-fresh flavor really be captured in a mix?

9 Portland Doughnuts We Love

Sweets Adam Lindsley 20 comments

Unlike San Francisco or Chicago, Portland is not one of the great doughnut towns. That said, the city still offers some hidden gems for those willing to look beyond the Tang-dusted and Cocoa Puffs-encrusted. Read on to see which glorious circles of dough we crave most in Stumptown. More

Our 13 Favorite Doughnut Spots in San Francisco

Sweets Lauren Sloss Post a comment

We stocked up on milk and busted out our stretchy pants to scour the city for the best places to satisfy your doughnut fix. We aimed for an even dozen but, as happens with doughnuts, we found that a thirteenth snuck onto our list. But really, a Baker's Dozen is always a good thing, particularly when it comes to doughnuts.

Happy National Doughnut Day! 8 Recipes to Celebrate

The Serious Eats Team 1 comment

How could we miss National Doughnut Day? Of course we wouldn't. The holiday is celebrated on the first Friday of June, a tradition created by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor women who served doughnuts to soldiers returning home from World War I. While we've been known to celebrate doughnuts on many other days of the year, we have an extra special excuse today to channel our inner Homer Simpsons today. Here's a collection of our favorites: New Orleans beignets, cider doughnuts, and more. More

Mixed Review: King Arthur Flour Buttermilk Doughnuts

Sweets Lucy Baker 16 comments

There's been a lot of talk about doughnuts around these parts lately. And while I love a good doughnut as much as the next person, I don't love the guilt that comes with scarfing one down. That's why I was excited to try King Arthur Flour's Buttermilk Doughnut Mix ($6.95). The doughnuts are baked, not fried, and each one weighs in at a reasonable 190 calories. More

Gluten-Free Tuesday: Vegan Apple Doughnuts

Serious Eats Elizabeth Barbone 7 comments

Apple doughnuts in March? Let me explain! Originally I planned to share a buttermilk doughnut recipe for Gluten-Free Tuesday. We've made pancakes and waffles in this column; turning to doughnuts next seemed only right. In an effort to create an allergen-free doughnut, I skipped the buttermilk and eggs and turned to apple juice. More

Ed Levine's Caloric Journey, Week 162: Vacation and Doughnuts Are Not a Righteous Path

Ed Levine's Serious Diet Ed Levine 21 comments

Yesterday we had a doughnut tasting at SE World Headquarters. On a Thursday, no less. The day before my weigh-in. Now I know full well that doughnuts are not on the path to weight loss, or even weight control. Doughnuts are one of the big holes in my weight control game. But what would you do if you were confronted by an entire conference table filled with doughnuts? Well, I know what I did. I tasted a bunch then left the room. More

San Francisco: A Flavor Tour of Dynamo Donuts

Sweets J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

San Francisco's Mission District is still somewhere in that transitional phase where the vast majority of storefronts are still old-school taquerias and Mexica-tessans, but the hipsters and artisans have slowly started encroaching with a mix of a few duds and plenty of truly fantastic and uniquely delicious eateries (think Flour + Water or Bi-Rite Creamery). Dynamo Donuts falls firmly into the latter category, serving freshly fried, doughy, yeasty, chewy doughnuts. More
