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...)
Originally from Texas, I have been living in NYC since 2005 and have been "making it work" in my small kitchen since 2008. My life in NYC consists of juggling a full time job, singing in small opera companies, running races, and baking desserts.
All in all:
I like cookies, therefore I am.
