When you can’t decide between a doughnut, muffin, croissant or eclair, London has you covered. Here are 5 weird doughnuts you must eat in London … a bit odd, but very tasty!
1. Cronut – Dum Dum Donutterie, Shoreditch.
The world famous cronut is a mash-up of two beloved bakery items – a croissant and doughnut. With it’s flaky layered inside and a sugary caramelised outside, Dum Dum’s version of this calorific concoction is baked, not fried so slightly easier on the waistline. What’s not so easy on the wallet is the world’s most expensive cronut made by Dum Dum themselves. Made with gold and sweet caviar, it’ll set you back a whopping £1,500. Luckily this one will only set you back no more than £3.
2. Duffin – Beas of Bloomsbury, St Pauls.
Bea’s duffin is a doughnut cross muffin hybrid. Fluffy cake inside, crispy doughnut outside. The ORIGINAL duffin is available from Beas of Bloomsbury ONLY, filled with either jam or Nutella, and if your wondering why ORIGINAL is in capitals go and google ‘duffingate‘. Big boys Starbucks stole Beas idea and passed it off as their own. Naughty naughty!
3. Doughssant – Harrods, Knightsbridge.
Imagine a croissant that has been deep fried and rolled in sugar. Picturing it yet? Arteries clogging yet? Then yes, you’ve got it. This croissant-doughnut is crisp, buttery, flaky and sugary in one mouthful. Plus it’s a good excuse to visit Harrod’s food hall and try all the other deliciousness. Not to mention the Jimmy Choos.
4. Muffnut – Coffee in the Wood, Colliers Wood.
Okay, so the muffnut is the same thing as a duffin (doughnut cross muffin). But seriously, how much better does it sound to say you’ve eaten a muffnut? Coffee in the Wood does a great version supplied by Leila’s Bakery filled with either peanut butter jelly, Nutella or jam! Another excuse to visit this lovely South London coffee shop.
5. The Clair – Exclusive to Harrods on behalf of Dum Dum Donutterie.
So ‘The Clair’ is a version of an eclair cross doughnut. Shaped in a rectangle, filled with buttercream and topped with ganache. This hybrid is again made by doughnut giant Dum Dum’s donuterie, but you won’t find them in their stores: they’re exclusive to Harrods – Oh, Posh! Essentially it’s just an éclair shaped doughnut, but who cares we still love it.
