Out the Door donuts - report

DC in DC | Aug 6, 200505:02 PM

Hand over two dollars plus tax and eight minutes later ("we make each batch to order") appear 5 piping hot donut-hole-looking items in a paper tray (then placed in a bag, if you're ordering to go).

Each donut (for lack of a better term) is about the size of a ping-pong ball, half-dipped in fine granulated sugar. The crust is light brown and appropriately crisp; the inside is light and yeasty. There's no additional spice or flavor aside from the dough itself and the sugar coating. Not too sweet; a good ratio of crust (light crunch) to inside (chew). They weren't greasy; left no residue on the fingers or in the tray. They're fried in canola oil, according to OTD staff.

I'm hardly a donut expert, but these were delicious.
