Does anyone remember Crutchleys 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 Id 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 Crutchleys, the crullers were sitting on a bed of powdered sugar, like boulders on fresh snow.
