Fluffy DonutsSeptember 25, 2012
As soon as I checked the Natsoulas Gallery Café off of the List, I started bouncing around more than a little kid on Christmas morning. “Donuts! Donuts! We get donuts!” I chanted in my head aloud, dancing around the house. Although morning meetings at work prevented us from going for breakfast, we sped over to restaurant #18 at noon for our sugar fix.
I nearly sprinted into Fluffy Donuts and pressed my nose flat up against the glass display case. With so many options—glazed, frosted, sprinkles, coconut, crumb, bar, twist, old-fashioned—I just couldn’t make up my mind… I wanted them all! But when a line began forming behind us, I played eenie-meanie-miney-mo and placed our order.
We bought three donuts: a chocolate bar, a chocolate old-fashioned, and a chocolate-frosted plain with sprinkles. (Guess which one was mine!) The first was a yeast donut and completely lived up to the store’s name. I immediately became addicted to the soft, fluffy bar and snuck another small nibble every time my guy looked away. Shh, don’t tell…
The latter two were cake donuts with a denser interior. We both enjoyed the stiff crisp exterior of the old-fashioned, which complemented the soft dough inside. The “kiddie” donut had a very subtle hint of cinnamon in the batter, combining well with the light chocolate frosting. And who can resist those colorful sprinkles?
If you ever come to Davis, go to Fluffy Donuts. Period. A true gem, they offer other breakfast pastries, Thai tea, and Vietnamese sandwiches in addition to some of the best donuts in the county. I shamelessly lick my fingers after every one I eat, and I guarantee you will do the same—or your donut is on me!
