Best of Canberra – Donuts

Sophia Carlini 10 December 2014 26


They don’t need an introduction … those deep fried, fluffy, cakey circles of heaven, rolled in cinnamon and sugar, with a center that is 100% fat free!

Yes, I am talking about donuts. Hommer Simpson’s, and mine, favourite treat!

There are so many different types of donuts, from the traditional cinnamon and sugar, to custard filled, and now there is the new craze of cronuts; a cross between a croissant and a donut.

Imagine Hommer Simpson looking at a donut right now; that will be me this week when I go in search for Canberra’s best donuts.

Where are Canberra’s best?

I remember the queues outside Krispy Kreme when they opened at the front of Woden Plaza in 2006. A few months later the place was virtually deserted. I walked in there once and there was nobody serving. I walked out thinking I’d dodged a bullet. Two years later they closed down. The Sunday Telegraph said that it and almost all the other KK shops in Australia had closed due to a trend towards healthy eating and gym training. Today you can still buy KK doughnuts (to use their spelling) at 7-Eleven at Fyshwick and Mawson but they aren’t freshly cooked anymore, they are delivered to 7-Eleven in boxes.

Krispy Kreme were unbelievably good, but deadly, if they would only serve them to you fresh. I did succeed once or twice when they first came out in getting them served hot.

A little overlooked detail in the preparation of donuts, waffles and pancakes.

So of course they stopped serving them fresh, because it took the “convenience” out of convenience food.

To their credit they were the pinnacle of American fine food, amazingly generous with salt, sugar, fat and low cost starch prepared by machines and cheap unskilled labour, served in massive quantities at a massive mark-up.

They might have lasted if they had only been smothered in mayonnaise. But still, they live on in people’s waistlines and arteries.

I really miss the old donut truck at Jamison trash and treasure. Freshly cooked dusted donuts, the best I’ve ever had. Hell even puffin fresh (I think it was called) donuts near kmart in belco back in the day was better than any krispy Kreme or donut king ever made.

Hopefully the new Donut van in braddon in the hamlet can restore my faith in a good donut, the hamlet opens tomorrow.

Trashos donut truck comes and goes. Great for a cold morning.

There’s a place in the Hamlet in Braddon that opens today or tomorrow that is selling freshly made donuts. It’s an offshoot of Nookie espresso bar, supposed to be quite good.

The Street Theatre sell truly delicious Italian donuts – the custard ones are divine!
