Blognut would like to wish Blognut a happy 1 year anniversary.
This idiotic Donut blog has come a long way since its humble beginnings at the Formica tables of the Donut House. From a Tang-flavored Donut in Portland, to a buttermilk high atop a 10,000 foot Hawaiian volcano, to rock-hard Parisian atrocities on the streets of the Left Bank, over the past 12 months I've tried my hardest to provide you, the readers, with the most objective, practical and flavorful Donut commentary I could manage. Hopefully I've convinced some of you of the limitless potential in a wad a fried dough, or at very least helped reinforce your previously existing Donut appreciation. And thanks to all of you who've provided support, recipes, and most importanly, Donut shop recommendations - I owe each and every one of you a coffee and a Donut.
So in honor of Blognut's year anniversary, I've compiled a list of the top ten Donuts I consumed over the past year. Enjoy, and thanks for reading.
#10) The Doughnut Plant - Peanut Butter Glazed with Banana Cream Filling
An Elvis-inspired banana cream-stuffed ring coated in a peanut-y glaze.
#9) Banbury Cross - Cinnamon
Cinnamon crumb goodness in Morman country.
#8) The Donut Pub - Black and White Boston Creme
A donut-y twist on the classic NYC black and white cookie stuffed with Boston's finest.
#7) Yummies Donuts - Honey-Glazed Blossom
Honey-infused cake dough shaped like a boomerang.
#6) Spudnuts - Cherry Cinnamon
A bumpy take on the classic cinnamon bun with cherry-infused glaze.
#5) Voodoo Doughnut - Butter-fingering
Devil's food cake dough dowsed with vanilla frosted and shattered Butterfinger.
#4) Mike's Donuts - Plain Glazed
Simple, sweet and satisfying.
#3) The Doughnut Plant - Tres Leches
Mark Israel's finest creation: butter cake soaked in evaporated milk, condensed milk, and cream, just like the traditional Mexican cake.
#2) Voodoo Doughnut - Dominic the Cat
A one-of-a-kind Voodoo creation modeled after my big-boned feline Dominic.
#1) Spudnuts - Plain Glazed
A cinnamon-spiked, potato flour dough, coated with a subtle glaze straight out of Charlottesville, Virginia. Simply the finest Donut of all. Please disregard the cows.
