America’s Top 10 Doughnuts

Submitted by on December 23, 2013 – 6:48 pmNo Comment

congdon-donutThere’s nothing like a doughnut (preferably still warm and just out of the fryer). Your Road Trips Foodie confesses that her favorite is the maple-glazed confection from Tim Horton (which she always buys on her first stop in Canada each trip north).

But if you’re stuck in the USA, you might want to try one of these, selected by The Daily Meal.

From a plain glazed one in Texas that’s an essentially perfect representation of the form to a blueberry cake doughnut in California that has developed a legion of followers, they’ve tracked down the country’s best.

In order to assemble our ranking, The Daily Meal stuck to strict criteria in looking for the best individual doughnuts in America: Freshness is key, as great doughnuts need to be served right out of the fryer.

They considered both plain glazed and extravagantly topped creations, but there needed to be a balance between all the components, be it bacon or blueberry jelly. Most importantly, these doughnuts need to be groan-inducingly good: fresh, soft, gooey, perfectly proportioned, and intended to leave you wanting just one more bite.

The Daily Meal identified a total of 25; here are their top 10:

1 Doughnut Vault, 400 North Franklin Street, Chicago, Illinois — plain glazed

2 Round Rock Donuts, 106 West Liberty Avenue, Round Rock, Texas — lain Glazed

3 Dough, 448 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, New York — lemon poppy

4 Bouchon, 6534 Washington Street, Yountville, California — broiche with seasonal preserves

5 Stan’s Doughnuts, 10948 Weyburn Avenue, Los Angeles, California — peanut butter and banana

6 Danny’s Donuts, 102 Eucalyptus Avenue, Vista, California — blueberry cake

7 Verna’s Donut Shop, 2344 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, Massachusetts — chocolate honey-dip

8 Congdon’s Doughnuts, 1090 Post Road, Wells, Maine — blueberry jelly

9 Federal Donuts, 1219 South Second Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — cookies and cream

10 Donut Man, 915 East Route 66, Glendora, California — fresh peach and strawberry
