Farewell to Donut King, a visit to Donut Hut, and a Djonuts pop-up

Whirlwind visit to Donut King upon hearing the news of their being forced out of business by developers. Loathing those who can't make up their minds, I went balls deep with trios of Chocolate Glazed, Chocolate Chocolate, German Chocolate – the apex predator of chocolate doughnuts, and rounding off the baker's dozen with four unadorned Home Cut.

Comforting, simple, plain-as-fuck Home Cut and a frosted Chocolate Chocolate. Simple is best.

Chocolate topped Old Fashioned and a Dutch Crumb at Donut Hut on Douglas and 50th.

Donut Hut makes the best apple fritter in town, IMHO! Moist, pulls apart easily, flavored throughout; its a delight! Of champagne cake lore, Barbara's Champagne Cake products are available at Donut Hut.

During this year's Free Comic Book Day festivities at Capes Kafé, baker Joe Formaro surprised all with a Djonuts pop-up offering six exciting flavors of his baked doughnuts. I scored personal favorites, Cinnamon Sugar and Lemon Buttercream. Excelsior!
