A few years ago, I was in holidaying America, enjoying the vast array of doughnuts while lamenting the sad choice at home (this was before the Cronut Explosion kick-started a Doughnut Explosion), and a fellow Australian said to me, “Puffies, Roselands – best doughnuts in Sydney”.

I stepped off the plane at Kingsford Smith and headed straight to Roselands, and sure enough, I found Puffies in a quiet spot at the bottom of the shopping centre.

My eyes widened when I saw their pineapple doughnut was actually the hero doughnut. I hadn’t had a decent pineapple doughnut since my school tuckshop sold them for about 60 cents each.

As close to an old-skool pineapple doughnut as you’re gonna get

Puffies does cake-style doughnuts, so while not quite the traditional old-skool pineapple doughnut, it still has the good old glazing that I remember oh-so-well.

So if you’re pining for a blast from the past, pop into Puffies.
