One thing you wouldn’t expect from a Macedonian Bakery is a doughnut – actually I didn’t expect a Macedonian Bakery in the first place, but maybe my horizons aren’t broad enough. Having tasted their doughnuts, I pay Alexander’s at Miranda (hey, that rhymes) a regular visit.
Alexander’s Bakery has a wonderful array of sweet and savoury foods, although I wish things were displayed in a more hygienic way.
I had the Strawberry Jam Doughnut, and let me tell you it was delicious.
It’s a chewy yeast doughnut in an absolutely morish way, filled to the brim with strawberry jam. They actually slice the doughnut in half and slap on loads of jam.
It has a half-coating of soft sugar on the top.
This is one of those doughnuts you won’t read about in the other so-called ‘Best Doughnuts’ articles, and that’s the very purpose of this blog. Because Alexander’s Bakery Strawberry Jam Doughnuts rate up there.
They’re ugly, but they’re terrific.
