Cronuts

0 3857

Donut King is a family owned donut shop that opened in late 2007 in Minneola, Fl, and just a few months ago – they opened their second location on Howell Branch road, on the eastern edges of Winter Park / Casselberry.

Suffice it to say, this location is a lot closer to us on the east side than the Minneola one.

Unlike the first location, they are only open 5 a.m.-8 p.m daily.

What makes these donuts such a joy to eat? They’re soft, pillowy, and large – and quite delicious.

Throw your caution and diet to the wind before entering.

Some of the highlights are the glazed donut and the bacon maple glazed donut, but they have red velvet glazed, sprinkles, vanilla, pretty much all the favorites.

In addition to their donuts, they also have hot dog rolls, breakfast croissant sandwiches, and little slider hamburgers called castle burgers. They do not, however, have their jambalaya and fried chicken wings that is available in the first location…yet.

First there was the Cronut and now the kind folks at the chocolate lover’s paradise – Peterbrooke Chocolatier of Winter Park (300 S. Park Avenue , Winter Park, Florida 32789) – have created the Broissant, a doughnut-croissant hybrid.

Like any well-made, cronut-like dessert, the dough is carefully laminated– at Peterbrooke, this is a four-hour process. If you’re aren’t familiar with laminating — it is a baking term for a folding process of alternating layers of dough and butter when making pastries such as croissants and danishes. The more folds or “turns” laminated dough has, the more flaky the finished pastry will be.

The broissants are all made to order treats, coming in two sizes and include toppings:

Broissant (Full size with toppings): $4
Broissant Pépites (Three minis with toppings): $3

Peterbrooke offers the following seasonal flavors of Broissants; however, additional flavors may be available upon request:

· Pumpkin Cheesecake *NEW*

· Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel

· Ceylon Cinnamon & Sugar

· Peanut Butter with Nutter Butter and Milk Chocolate Ganache
