Here in Portland we love our doughnuts. We’ve got Voodoo (average doughnuts, fun concept, worth going for the experience), Blue Star (tasty, but expensive) and numerous other spots throughout the city.
My favourite doughnut shop here is Pip’s. They make mini doughnuts and have some of the best chai I’ve ever had. You can even get a dozen free doughnuts on your birthday or any of the seven days after. It’s basically the best possible situation because who doesn’t like free doughnuts?! Especially when they’re as good as the one’s at Pip’s.
Seriously, if you live in Portland and you’ve never been, go! And if you find yourself visiting Portland, join us in line and treat yourself to the tasty bite size treats. Or let me know you’re here and I’ll treat you to some doughnuts!
I’m not normally one for making my own doughnuts. Baked doughnuts are great but don’t always satisfy that fried doughnut need you might have.
I don’t really like frying things in big pots of oil though so if I really want doughnuts, I’m more inclined to go to Pip’s and get some than make them myself.
These doughnuts though. They’re delicious, require minimal frying time and they’re stuffed with raspberry jam. So goooooood!
You do have to be patient and let the dough rise a couple of times, but the end result is so worth it. Soft, pillowy doughnuts, rolled in sugar, filled with jam. I’ve got your breakfast covered 😉
