The American Doughnut Kitchen

Doughnut purists will be familiar with this one. This family-run business has been kneading and frying dough since the 1950s. The iconic blue and white van has long been a necessary pit stop during a visit to the Queen Victoria Markets to stock up on a paper bag of the fresh, fried delights. Sometimes simplicity rules and this is definitely the case here: the unchanged recipe involves a quick fry of the yeasted dough in sizzling oil following by a generous dusting of sugar. The final step is an injection of hot red jam into the doughnuts core which explodes into your mouth (and onto your clothes if you're not careful) on first bite.
