Dominique Ansel Cronut (and Cookie Shot)

Dominique Ansel Cronut (and Cookie Shot)

My lovely friend Alice introduced me to the delights of the Dominique Ansel bakery in London today. Dominique Ansel invented the Cronut – a croissant-donut hybrid which I encountered first in the Dum Dum Donutterie Zebra cronut – so I was excited to try the original. […]

Baked churro doughnuts – recipe review

Baked churro doughnuts – recipe review

  As mentioned previously, I live in a rural area so don’t have ready access to high-end doughnuts all the time (and can get a bit jealous of Sarah given how many she manages to seek out without even trying) so I thought I’d have […]

Bill’s Cinnamon Doughnuts

Bill’s Cinnamon Doughnuts

Sam and I went to Bill’s in Soho before a trip to the Gielgud theatre to see the Robert Harris’ Cicero plays (very good, but the books are even better…). We needed somewhere reliable for good food at a reasonable price and with speedy service. […]

Doughnut Stationery

Doughnut Stationery

Two of my passions collided last month: stationery and doughnuts. This came courtesy of Pipsticks – a stationery subscription service from the US. I signed up 9 months ago (with a teacher discount) and each month they send 14+ strips of stickers in the post for approx. […]

Soboro, Cambridge

A while back I visited Cambridge with some friends and we stopped at Soboro after we had lunch, to get something sweet for dessert. Soboro is a Japanese and Korean bakery and half of the items available seemed to have matcha in. I didn’t spot […]

Lindholmen Street Food Market, Gothenburg

Lindholmen Street Food Market, Gothenburg

On my recent trip to Gothenburg, there were limited doughnut options but we managed to stumble upon one by accident. I had looked up the Lindholmen Street Food Market before we left, but it was across the river and I wasn’t sure how easy it […]

St John’s Bakery, Maltby Market

St John’s Bakery, Maltby Market

I love a food market. All those different cuisines lined up in a row:  a halloumi starter, a naan wrap and then obviously some sort of doughnut.  I’d read about the doughnuts of St John’s Bakery but was happily surprised to find an entrance to the […]

Ben’s Canteen: DIY Doughnuts

Ben’s Canteen: DIY Doughnuts

Ben’s Canteen is one of my favourite local restaurants and always a reliable option for a Saturday night. Their mission is a) to create an alternative to a pub for a relaxed weekend, and b) serve up delicious (and Aussie-inspired) brunches. My Ben’s top three dishes […]
