Oh, the doughnut. Once upon a time, it was a pastry you would purchase by the dozen at the grocery store or any ol’ chain. But South Florida has done what it does best: We turned it gourmet. Go to any event around town and you’ll find decadent doughnuts covered in glitter, piped frosting, fondant figures and even microgreens and flowers. If you dare ask anyone for thei rfavorite shop, you’re asking for a rumble to break out.
At Boca magazine, we decided to find out once and for all which shop in town creates the best doughnut delights. We invited five judges to our office for a blind taste-test of six very different doughnuts made by local bakeries. Who won? Just watch.
