First, is it donut or doughnut? I’ve never been sure.
US News recently published their list of America’s Best Doughnuts and I was pleasantly surprised to see that I’ve dined at four of their top 12:
A local favorite of ours, my favorite is the cake doughnut with white or pink frosting and sprinkles. I have an unhealthy obsession with sprinkles. More on that later.
We went to Voodoo a few years ago, when we were in Portland at a friends’ wedding. Brandon was kind enough to bring a few doughnuts back to the hotel and the bacon maple bar was the perfect hangover helper.
We went to NYC for our honeymoon and Brandon had done his research and Doughnut Plant was a must-visit. They didn’t disappoint; we tried three varieties of donuts and enjoyed every last bite.
We discovered Gourdough’s through a friend’s Facebook post and have been lusting after it for years. We finally made our way down to Austin (last weekend) and happened to visit Gourdough’s on Brandon’s birthday. That was one really happy birthday boy!
I shared this list with Brandon and he was pretty proud of our accomplished eating and ranked Gourdough’s as the best doughnuts he’s ever enjoyed, but you be the judge. What do you think? Delicious? (Menu: http://www.gourdoughs.com/)
Hopefully we’ll get to the other eight soon. I’ll have Brandon check on the flights. Next time you’re in Seattle and in the mood for doughnuts, make sure to check out Top Pot and Daily Dozen Donuts (unranked, but a favorite of ours) at the Pike Place Market. Get the assorted dozen and really enjoy it!
