    Re: DONUTS!

    Better than a donut with coffee...a just off the conveyor belt Cider Donut or 10 with a hot cup of mulled cider, or a nice cold glass of apple cider.  It's the best thing about fall in upstate NY. But it's like getting fresh corn from the garden to the stovetop to your plate - it's gotta be done quickly!  You can't stick them in a bag and share them with your family or co-workers, you've got to go to the orchard and eat and drink immediately. 

    Not every orchard does them right. Went to a place called Samascott Orchards in Kinderhook NY two weekends ago and their donuts sucked. (Great cherries, tho).  How can you screw a cider donut up and still call yourself an orchard?  Good ones:  The Cider Mill in Endicott (Binghamton) NY and Indian Ladder Farms in Voorheesville (Albany) NY.

    Re: DONUTS!

    Donuts are the food of the gods.  When I was training for my first marathon, I'd reward myself with one after the longer runs when I saw one of my friends who is an elite marathoner doing the same.  If I lived near a Duncan's I'd be in trouble and don't get in my way when they have one of those "mini-donut" machines around (fresh donuts even better).  My only comment, having gotten caught up in the frenzy initally, is that Krispy Kremes are WAY over-rated.  Growing up in Detroit, I can tell you that either Duncan's or Tim Horton's blows them away

    Re: DONUTS!

    I like donuts, but stay away from them, unless someone sticks a box of them under my nose.  Then I don't have any trouble eating 3.  Or 4.

    On the Food Channel, Paula Deene made a "donut bread pudding" that went something like this:

    Break Krispy Kreme glazed donuts (a dozen ?) into chunks, and put into baking pan.

    Pour a can of sweetened condensed milk over it (as she does this, she announces that "this recipe has no added sugar.")

    Then pour in a can of fruit cocktail (can't remember if she drained it first or not).

    Bake - probably at 350, but I don't remember how long.

    If any of you attempt this - please let us know your results !  I was kind of liking the sound of it, until it came to the fruit cocktail part, but I guess you could always leave that out.

    Oh, man Paula Deene must be southern.

    That....sounds....sweet enough to rot your teeth on contact.  My husband'd love it.

    Re: DONUTS!

    my favourite donuts of all time, bar none, are the maple glazed donuts from frosty's bakery in brunswick, me.  they make them every freakin' morning, and the line out the door is at least a mile long...  they serve them to you hot.  sigh.  i'd give my right arm for one.

    on the other hand, my favourite pastry are the meltaways from this teensy homegrown bakery on the cape.  i could eat those things until i passed out.  layers and layers of lemon, sugar and flaky dough...  gahhhh.

    i'm betting it would be absolutely fabulous if you substituted a can of blueberry pie filling for the fruit cocktail...

    you'll probably want to arm yourself w/a prescription for insulin, but whatever.

    She is about as country as grits. And that woman uses more fat and sugar than anyone on the channel.

    Sometimes I wish she were my grandmother. !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|border=0!

    (Oh, and for lunch, I'm stopping to get some Krispy Kremes. )

    Re: DONUTS!

    This discussion is just cracking me up!  Who knew that one person professing their love of the 3 donuts they just ate would spark such response.  !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|border=0!

    By the way, my favorite is a warm "plain" donut from Floyd's Daylight Donuts. mmmm!

    And I agree, all filled donuts should be outlawed!  Ick!

    Yabut Boston Creme donuts are great.  Like round eclairs..mmm... eclairs.
