Dum Dum Donutterie
If you’re trying to watch your figure, maybe donuts aren’t for you. But, if your craving for sweets gets too overpowering, then maybe you should take a trip to Dum Dum Donutterie. At this Shoreditch-based pop-up shop, they bake, not fry, the donuts, thus giving them half the fat and calories of a regular donut.
I had wanted to come here because most donuts in London are filled with jelly or pudding, so I decided to try a non-filled donut here. The donuts are inspired by chef Paul Hurley’s stints in France and Italy and takes cues from a French patisserie. So what better name to call this baked donut haven than a Donutterie?
The toppings were colorful and eye catching. I grabbed a White Chocolate & Pistachio donut as well as a Strawberry Puree Fondant donut. They also do cronuts, filled donuts, and other donut-like baked goods. Biting into each one, I could tell that they were not as greasy as most donuts, a byproduct of not deep frying them in a solid oil. Though, they lacked the lightness and the fluffy quality of a fried donut. But the glossy icings were surprisingly good and flavorful, without being overly sweet.
