St John Doughnut
Doughnuts despite their deliciousness, are not a vital foodstuff. Well, that’s what we are told. Awful things, terrible for you etc.
Whoever thought this nonsense has never allowed one of St John’s sugar sparkling wonders, to pass their lips.
A deep fried religious experience of taste, texture and oozing sugar rush. From those filled with apple butter, or butterscotch, simple vanilla custard or that weirdest of fillings - jam.
Whether sat at the bar in Clerkenwell, or in corner of Smithfield, accompanied by a coffee they guaranteed guilt free. There is now a ‘to-go’ bakery/shrine in Neal’s Yard.
