The doughnuts the class made in Home Ec. The ones from the farmers market. The guy had some beautiful produce - and doughnuts. His wife had made them and they were terrific.

I second the Polish doughnut, but mine was one of those pre-lenten doughnuts - a round one filled with fruit. ...

Pascki - another word for heaven....

I moved to Ohio three years ago, and there's a great Polish bakery in Akron. I had them all of my life back in NY. I think these may be even better than any bakery Polish doughnuts.

All Polish doughnuts are dense yet somehow fluffy. Not greasy. Crispy. And filled with a delicious fruit filling (some are not) that is not super sweet.

These are absolutely THE BEST DOUGHNUTS on EARTH!

If you live in Ohio, Chicago or Greenpoint Brooklyn - you must have had these.

Depends on the type of donut!

Best cake donuts I've had? Any of the cake varieties from Top Pot (Seattle-based local chain). I don't normally care for cake donuts too much, but theirs are evilly addictive (Has a perfect hint of nutmeg in the batter). Great old fashioned glazed as well.

For raised yeast donuts, it's a toss-up between a number of little Mom & Pop shops I've tried all over. I'm a sucker for good apple fritter or anything with maple frosting on it, and it seems the best ones come from the smallest shops

Cider donuts from Delicious Orchards in South Jersey. Friggin' amazing.

Other good ones were at the top of Pike's Peak's cog rail. But that was probably a lot to do with the atmosphere. When you're 14,000+ feet up and 20+ degrees colder than you were at the start of the adventure, cocoa and donuts is like being offered a slice of heaven.

We have the famed Voodoo donuts in Denver, and me and some friends got a sample box. They were ... uninspiring. Way too sweet.

I agree. They're ok at best. Even hot off the line.

Best donut I ever had...

I cooked a beautiful, high quality meat burger.
Cut a Duncan's glazed donut in half and used that as burger buns.
Ate it.

Flippin' ridiculously best donut I ever had.

My favorite donut is Boston cream with real vanilla custard - not angel cream. The best version I ever had was from my friend's mom's bakery. Every little thing about it was perfect - the soft but not runny real chocolate icing, slightly chewy dense pastry, fresh homemade vanilla custard. I need a moment.

I'm another Krispy Kreme bashed. I hate that they glaze all their donuts. Too sweet and just blah.

Donut buns for beef burgers are the thing now. If going with a sweet bun I'd rather have Hawaiian bread than a donut though - for a burger.
