Donut Challenge

Posted in Food, Jon Crispin by joncrispin on 25/07/2013

I was back shooting suitcases today.  I hope to have a post up tomorrow with a few of the latest.  It was a good day. /  I believe I have mentioned earlier here that I often stop at the Donut Dip in West Springfield  to pick up some treats.  Peggy was mentioning this to the woman who works the counter at the Schuyler Bakery in Watervliet, and of course donut quality came up in the conversation.  We did a bit of an experiment today.  Peg couldn’t get an “old fashioned” but we did have glazed and jam donut parity.  The glazed (bottom row) were markedly different.  I preferred the Dip’s but Jeff and Peg liked Schuyler’s (the latter seemed to me more “cakey” and less melt in the mouth.)  Next up was the jam (top row).  We all liked the Donut Dip’s offering.  Peg was pretty sure it was raspberry.   The lone cake on the left is from the Schuyler and she called it a “raised”.  Not sure if the Dip has an equal but I’ll check.
