In search of...a decent glazed buttermilk donut

gj | Sep 28, 2004 12:18 PM

I can't seem to find the delicious glazed buttermilk donuts of my youth. With today's standardized mixes in all the shops you just don't see the tasty, cake-like quality or the lucious icing stuck like mini-glaciers in the cracks of an oblong buttermilk donut. Some of the big supermarket chains have tried, and failed, to make a go of it, and your typical mom and pop joint buttermilk donut is a pod-like, shiny thing suffering from being drenched in too much oil or something.

Second on my list: Jelly donuts with white icing. I'd swear the entire country seems to buy its jelly from a Union Carbide remainder plant, on account of the dull, stale preservative taste that seems to linger on. Krispy Kreme's jelly is an exception, but they don't do white icing (at least how I like it).

Any leads on the above would be greatly appreciated...
