My husband loves doughnuts. Doughnut shaped cakes, towers of doughnuts, doughnuts with coffee, doughnut holes, and especially doughnuts with one of his favorite food groups-sprinkles. He grew up in California with the Entemann’s brand of baked goods and has been lamenting their scarcity in Texas ever since his family moved here. Luckily for him Entemanns is celebrating National Doughnut day, and yes has a new Red Velvet cake doughnut. We almost missed out, I had to sadly let Entemanns know that I could not find anywhere close to me to find their delicious treats, and they graciously offered to ship us some.
This is how our doughnut tasting went down:
Today, a package arrived and I could hear him excitedly exclaim from the kitchen “A package is here for you!!!”. I asked him who it was from and he said “It is for you, and says MomStart…but it is mine.” “How do you figure it is yours then?” I asked him as he was protectively clutching the box to his chest. “It’s mine, I know it…these are my doughnuts.” And he began ripping into the corners. Several minutes of squabbling over who gets to open what of the heavily sealed box first, sure enough it was a box of the new Red Velvet Cake doughnuts-‘his’ doughnuts.
As our home’s professional doughnut taster- here is his review:
These rich red velvet cake coated doughnuts with just the right sweetness glaze made every morsel delicious. Soft moist and delicate outside hides the incredibly satisfying sweet taste within. As I am one to stick to regular chocolate glazed donuts this was an eye opener. My eyes saw this red cake donut and wanted to think strawberry not chocolate. Once I tasted the first bite I was hooked and continued to pick at the box through the rest of the day and finished the last bit the next morning for breakfast.
He is totally right. These babies are addictive. I was the first to snag one out of the box as I knew it would be my first and only chance before the doughnut monster set in. I was trying to be reasonable and have the one doughnut as my diet splurge for the day. No less than 5 minutes after I finished my doughnut I snuck back into the kitchen special ops style to thieve another before Mack noticed. Super girly bonus-they are shaped a bit like flowers- win!
