The best doughnut I’ve ever had

The best doughnut I’ve ever had was from St Johns Bakery on Druid Street. I’d seen pictures and heard about it from my aunt, who has had them before, but I’d never actually had one myself. Since I’ve leaving for Japan next week, this was my last chance to taste one.

I was worried that we weren’t going to get one, but there was still a full tray of them left.


These custard doughnuts are absolutely amazing. Unlike normal doughnuts, these aren’t greasy at all – very light and airy. They have a crispy outer shell that you get from deep frying, but the inside is so soft and pillowy. The custard has vanilla bean bits in it and it was so silky and creamy. After you’ve had one, because they’re so fluffy, you almost forget you’ve eaten it – like you’ve ‘inhaled’ it as my aunt says. I’m glad I only got one, but I could’ve had another!

Can’t wait to come back for another one next year!
