Crutchley's Crullers

Pantagruel | Mar 17, 2004 04:15 PM

Does anyone remember Crutchley’s crullers, which came out of a bakery in Southhampton that closed in the 70s? In the end, I think, the only item they were making was the “hole,” a ball about 1 ½ inches.

They were unbelievable. Dense and crumbly, a little crunchy, even -- not greasy, not oversweet. The antithesis of Krispy Kreme.

Is there any place in existence that make anything remotely like them?

I found a recipe through Google, but I’d rather let someone else do the work. The comment in the recipe says the store workers were always covered in flour, but I wonder if it was actually powdered sugar. When you opened a box of Crutchley’s, the crullers were sitting on a bed of powdered sugar, like boulders on fresh snow.
