On Friday, Food & Wine launched a record of The Most effective Doughnuts in Each Point out, a comprehensive guidebook that’s “intensely personal” for author David Landsel. When it arrives to naming a Massachusetts preferred, Landsel goes all-in on Donut Dip, a West Springfield shop that debuted in 1957 (a second shop opened in East Longmeadow in 1965, but shut in 2019). The shop’s pièce de résistance, Landsel wrote, are the very hot cross doughnuts, which make an physical appearance through Lent.
“You know very hot cross buns, if you grew up celebrating Easter very hot cross doughnuts, on the other hand, possibly you do not know, at least not yet,” Landsel wrote. “Raisin-studded and topped with the trademark icing cross, 1 of these new on the line is way much too substantially exciting for this time of year.”
He also identified as out Donut Dip’s cider doughnuts — “some of New England’s finest” — which are available yr-spherical.
Landsel gave a shout-out to other New England doughnut outlets as very well, together with Neil’s Donuts in Wallingford, Conn., and a few Maine shops: Congdon’s Doughnuts in Wells, The Holy Donut in Portland, and Lil’s Cafe in Kittery. He also named Muriel’s Donuts in Lebanon, N.H. Allie’s Donuts in North Kingstown, R.I. and two Vermont doughnut havens: Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury and Shelburne Orchards in Shelburne.
