It’s been a week now since we returned from Seattle and CK and I are still reminiscing about the the doughnuts at Top Pot Doughnuts. These delectable pastries are the epitome of why I pretend that all vacation meals are “calorie-free.” Walking into the bakery we were immediately faced with an incredible dilemma – which doughnuts would we choose from the glass case?! There were just too many amazing frosted, sprinkled, and fruit glazed doughnuts. It was an overwhelming choice to make before 9:00 AM and pre-coffee.
Eventually I decided to try a plain glazed ring that was absolutely enormous, as well as a “Feather Boa” which was topped with pink icing and fluffy coconut. CK picked out a raspberry glazed ring and a crinkly Old Fashioned. Paired with a cold glass of milk, I ended up on a sugar high for hours. Of course we went back again the next day. So I can highly recommend the Blueberry Cake doughnut to you now too. Starbucks actually started selling Top Pot Doughnuts in their stores last spring. I can’t imagine that they’re as good after sitting next to containers of Perfect Oatmeal all day, but I could be wrong.
