Lemon Meringue Pie Sourdough Doughnuts at Sonoma Bakery
To celebrate Lemon Meringue Day, the bakery chain has created a tastebud-tempting — and tangy — culinary hybrid.
Remember when Aussie comedians Aunty Donna told us all that everything's a drum? Well, that sentiment can be adapted to other spheres. Everything's a doughnut, too, according to the increasingly inventive array of baked goods that keep dropping at various eateries around town. The latest example: lemon meringue pie sourdough doughnuts at Sonoma Bakery.
This culinary hybrid is as straightforward as it sounds. As tangy as well, naturally. Sonoma has taken its signature sourdough doughnuts, filled them with lemon curd, then topped them with toasted meringue and zesty lemon. Yes, your mouth should be watering just reading about them.
This Frankenstein's monster of a tasty bakery mashup has been unleashed to mark Lemon Meringue Day — yep, that's a real thing — on Sunday, August 15. You'll find it at Sonoma's various Sydney and Bowral Sonoma bakeries for more than just one day, however, with the $6-a-pop dish available from Wednesday, August 11–Sunday, August 15, and then again from Friday, August 20–Sunday, August 22 and Friday, August 27–Sunday, August 29.
Obviously, you'll need to pick up this little beauty for takeaway only — and while adhering to lockdown restrictions.
