The Doughnut or donut as latter spelling often seen in American English is a type of fried dough confectionery. It is popular in many countries and can be prepared in many different forms, though they are usually made from flour dough and usually deep-fried in a ring shape, but can also be ball-shaped (“doughnut holes”). Other types of batters can also be used, and various toppings and flavorings are used for different types, such as sugar, chocolate, or maple glazing. Doughnuts may also include water, leavening, eggs, milk, sugar, oil, shortening, and natural or artificial flavors. The earliest origins to the modern doughnuts are generally traced back to the olykoek (“oil(y) cake”) Dutch settlers brought with them to early New York. Which closely resembled later ones, but did not yet have their current ring shape. What we know for sure is however they’re made or decorated we love the sweet end results.

Big flavor in a mini donut? Sign us up! Mini Donut World is a cute little shop that is making donuts your way. They offer vanilla cake donuts during the week and chocolate and blueberry ones as well on the weekends. Then you get to choose your glaze, what type of drizzle you would like, and then what toppings from their 20 + topping options. Though the donuts themselves are not made to order but are customized and prepared for you. The base of the donut was cake, fluffy and delicious. Each mini donut had its own complex flavor and tasted completely different from the other ones. The toppings delicious, not overly sweet or overpowering, but perfectly balanced with the donut. Fun little place if you’re looking to experience different flavors of donuts. The smaller size makes it doable to try different ones without feeling guilty.
