Scratch-made French Donuts in Los Osos

Talking with Gary Carlock at Carlock's Bakery in Los Osos (SLO Co.) I discovered that his friday-only French Donuts are scratch baked. No mix involved; Gary thinks his are a rarity in these days of mixes. (Carlocks regular day donuts are from mix)

These are dreamy donuts, eggy and almost creamy in the center, with a ripply top and a thin sugar glaze. Affable Gary has been making these from a family recipe for 58 years, since he was 10 years old,

If you want any get here early. They are often sold out by the time I get there in the mid-afternoon.
