Delightful Donuts: Ohlin’s Bakery, Belmont, MA

19 Oct

DSC01052When I was a kid, growing up in a dreary suburb of a giant metropolis, my dad used to buy a dozen donuts to brighten up some Saturdays.  We definitely had to get a whole dozen, since it wasn’t cost effective to buy just one.  Since I no longer have the metabolism of a nine-year-old, I rarely buy donuts at all – nevermind a full dozen. But when I saw that Ohlin’s Bakery had made several “best donuts” lists in the Boston area, I had to check it out.DSC01047

It took my husband and me at least 10 minutes to choose two from the wide array of donut offerings. Because Ohlin’s has no seating, we brought these two home:

Ohlin's pumpkin donutPerfect for October!  It’s a “cake” donut, but very light and moist. As you bite into it, it falls apart in your mouth. Absolute heaven!
