The Best Donut in America

I know my blogs usually contain recipes of desserts I bake. But when I travel it's nice to share some dessert I just eat with no assembly required. Today I would like to share with you the BEST DONUT IN THE NATION. Meet a Round Rock Donut:
I know what you're thinking. That's just my opinion that it's the best. Au contraire. It's always in the top 10 donut lists that I've seen and has been ranked #1 in many polls. I've seen them featured on the Food Network, Travel Channel (Man vs Food), and on yahoo news.
What makes these so good? I'm not really sure, but I think it has something to do with the weird yellow orange color of the donuts. My favorite is the chocolate covered one (featured in this blog.) The chocolate isn't too fake or too sweet. It's just perfect with a great texture (as in not waxy). And the donut itself is always pure bliss with its wonderful light, fluffy dough and scrumptious flavor. In fact, when I was taking some quick pictures to share with y'all, I couldn't help but take a bite out of one. They are just THAT irresistible!
The only problem is that you can only get them in Round Rock, TX and various shops that sell them in Austin, TX. So, whenever I visit my parents, it's one of the to dos on my trip. (And, since I get them about once a year, I also have to gobble down tons in one sitting. You know, to make up for lost time...)

To find out more, visit their website: Round Rock Donuts

Bake well and prosper!


  1. That donut sure looks good and would go great with my cup of coffee. Too bad I'm not even close to TX. :o(

  2. Susi - I just told my coworker that if I had the money, I would open up a store in NYC. Hopefully the portfolio manager was listening. Hint...hint. lol

  3. Voodoo Donuts here in Portland has some fantastic choices too. :)

  4. Joe - I've heard of Voodoo! Those sound yummy too and are usually on the top 10 lists too!

  5. Dear Erika,
    When I was a kid in Waco, there was a donut shop called "Spudnuts." They made the dough out of potato flour, I think. I've never found anything like it since, but I'm not a pro like you! Ever heard of such a thing?

  6. It does look like the best donuts ever. With that yummy chocolate topping.

  7. OK, this is a subject i know and love: the donut. Unfortunately, I can't see myself going to texas anytime soon, but I need to ask you: have you ever tried the Krispy Kreme original glazed donut when it is still hot and fresh???? It is total crack my dear! Krispy Krack.
    *kisses* HH

  8. HH - Of COURSE I've had a KK while still hot and fresh. Only problem is they are TOO sugary. After one, I'm done. lol

  10. While I was in Denver recently, I was introduced to the best donuts ever! They are from a place called the Donut Hut Cafe in Littleton, and you can't go wrong, no matter which kind of donut you get. I might have to see if they will ship some to me.

    (For the record, I love Round Rock Donuts, and ate them way too often when I lived in Austin.)


Thanks for taking time to leave a message! xo - EB
