“A Baker’s Wife takes the prize from a traditionalist standpoint. Its shining accomplishment: the perfect plain doughnut. While all the doughnut flavors on offer are delicious (chocolate, powdered, cinnamon sugar — all the classics), too many sprinkles mask what A Baker’s Wife doughnuts do best. Even hours after they’ve cooled, they still have a little crunch on the outside, a light, fluffy cloud of cake on the inside, and the perfect sweetness. “
My cousin’s aunt and uncle run this joint. Everything they make is happiness in pastry form. I look forward to family birthday parties because their cakes bring tears to my eyes.
