Since we were in Austin two years ago and a donut-loving friend brought us one of Lone Star Bakery’s famed Texas-sized donuts, I’ve been theoretically smitten. Said donut was the size of an ample birthday cake and was a delightful raised confection, feeding a dessert-hungry rock band and then some.
So this time around, now that we’re here in Austin for SXSW for the week anyway, we decided to make the pilgrimage. We did not, in fact, EAT another Texas-sized donut, but we did visit it:
Don’t be put off by the orange-y glaze. It’s kind of weird, admittedly, but it actually tastes quite good. It’s a flavorful & light glaze and it’s one thing they do very well.
Also of note were the teeny cake donuts — I tried the blueberry and the applesauce and they were dreamy coffee companions. Small and manageable and the fresh fruit tones are so there, in the best way.
We came back with a collection of donuts that put us out approximately $3.76. Highlights included the cinnamon twist (reliably + off-puttingly orange) and a delicious raspberry jam.
