Our local donut shop has been closed all week while the owners are on
vacation. They won't re-open until next Tuesday. I am suffering from
serious withdrawal, to the point of buying some cardboard donuts at the
superket -- big mistake. They were probably "roasted" last August.
Anyway, it has been quite a while since I have seen a thread discussing your
favorite pastry to accompany your daily caffeine intake. Mine is Daylight
Donuts, glazed. But then, I don't have a choice out here in the boonies.
What gets your vote?

Easy and quick cinnamon toast. The key IMO opinion to great cinnamon toast
is good cinnamon. The best cinnamon in the world comes from Viet Nam.
(Saigon cinnamon.) but for many years this was in short supply, but it is
now returning to store shelves.

Still no donuts and wind/snow cancelled our day trip to next town with donut
shop. Had to settle for toast and English malade. I'm the only
malade fan in the house, and I have been saving a jar of Wilkin & Sons
Orange and Malt Whiskey malade that my grandson sent me. Great stuff;
Smuckers can't touch it. The English know how to make malade, even if
they drink tea with it.

Make your own doughnuts. Just use the cheapest biscuit in a tube
you can buy. Put a hole in the biscuit, stretch it to a doughnut
shape and throw it in some hot oil (even a frying pan with some
oil will work)

Got to use the cheap biscuit dough, the expensive stuff makes poor doughnuts.

Optional, you can roll the finished donut in cinnamon and sugar.

Is there still a Spudnuts franchise? They were my favorites back in the
early 1950's, but I haven't seen a Spudnuts shop since ours closed in 1954.
Where is yours located? BTW, most of the franchise donut shops in this area
are Daylite Donuts from Tulsa, OK. A few of the larger cities have Dunkin'
Donuts, and Wichita has the only Krispy Kreme shop that I know of. The
Daylite glazed donuts are my favorites, but Munchers Bakery in Lawrence, KS,
is great, too. The KK donuts are too sweet for my taste, but my wife loves
them.

Gimme a good ol' cake donut, plain or with frosting. Almost any combo
of frosting and sprinkles is fine, white with chopped nuts being my
fave.

Have you ever split a cake donut (like a bagel), toasted it lightly, and
spread with cream cheese? OMG, a heart attack on a plate, but heavenly.
I haven't had one in years because cake donuts are scarce in our area.

Not to be rude, gloria, but a donut and a bagel are two completely
different things, though some really bad bagel chains like Noah's NY
Bagels would have you belive otherwise.

But yes, I dearly love a split bagel with cream cheese. I like it
even more with lox added.

> I haven't had one in years because cake donuts are scarce in our area.

I can't imagine anyplace without a donut shop. You must really be
rural! ;)

Translation:
Have you ever split a cake donut (as one usually splits
a bagel)...

OK, I may have missed that. But, it was a bit confusing. If Pue had
said "plain cake donut" I may have clued in. But, I somehow missed
visualizing a chocolate frosting covered donut with coconut sprinkles
being cut in half and the center toasted while the frosting/coconut
melted off bottom side onto the red hot coils and bursting into flame
below the soon-to-be-cream-cheesed "donut". My apologies. [eye-roll]

See now, you're just trying to confuse me, right? Southern Maid sells great
fatpills, very good kolache also. And Dunkin Donuts? They're only at every
subway stop! Love 'em.
