The Canadian Maple - Tim Horton's

An odd place to start the tour of all things dough-nutty, yes. I could of started with the classic KK glaze, or the universally known and loved Chocolate Dip. Maybe even the most classic, plain.

But today I wanted to introduce the world to a real treat, the existence of which many are not aware of.

This is a shame.

I introduce to you one fine fine pastry: The Canadian Maple

Mmm thats a large Maple Doughnut. Some of you doughnut connoisseurs may have caught on by now, its stuffed with cream.
If anything this is a very close relative to the Boston Cream, but you would be surprised what a thick coat of maple icing does when mixed with cream and chewy dough.
An incredible flavour is produced, think pancakes and caramel, a breakfast that should be given a chance sometime. 

All doughnuts I discuss really should have a comment on their compatibility with coffee. This one unfortunately being a cream variety has a difficult time being dipped. You may have to suck out some cream to make room for coffee. If you pull this trick off though... well you know why Starbucks puts whipped cream in its coffee, because its right tasty. Sometimes these doughnuts to not have much cream in them and are slightly deformed leaving more dough on the inside, this assists with the dipping process as it leaves more absorptive space.

Fantastic doughnut, mostly on its own flavor. Makes a fine snack, and too me is an unsung classic.

The Grand Celebration of Doughnuts Kicks Off!

Doughnuts are a thing of yummy.

Let that be spoken as a universal truth.
I, GlassZebra, shall be your personal guide as we explore the universe (mainly earth, sorry otherworldly beings) in search of the best examples of said truth.

In this blog, I shall have weekly, or bi-weekly, reviews of all substance sugary and doughy. Being a Canadian, this means we will spend much time at the house of his holiness, Tim Horton, dissecting such classics as the Tim Bit. Fear not American readers! Krispy Kreme and Dunkin exist in our modest country as well as other chains that span the globe.

It is here that we may exchange witty banter about our favorite breakfast/snack/possible lunch and celebrate it for enriching our lives and our calories.
