Jam Filled Doughnut @ Loop-Line Pies, Thirlmere
Thirlmere? Where on earth is Thirlmere? Do they have doughnuts in Thirlmere?
Thirlmere is a quaint little semi-rural town just south of Sydney. It’s got a railway museum and a few shops. When a train goes through, a couple of guys manually put the barriers across the tracks to stop vehicles crossing. What an unusual job. What do they do between trains?
And speaking of trains, apparently the Picton Loop Line was the name of a train line that ran through Thirlmere. Hence the name of the bakery – Loop-Line Pies. Unless of course the owner just happened to be named Loop Line.
When I went in, I asked to see Mr Line, but they thought I was loopy.
Okay, corny jokes aside, they do have doughnuts and I bought a jam-filled doughnut.
It was very bread-like – soft and chewy. Had plenty of raspberry jam. And a generous coating of sugar.
I liked it.
They had plain cinnamon and iced doughnuts as well, so next time you’re in Thirlmere, give them a visit.
I had to be very discreet when taking photos. There were some ominous looking bikers outside who were at least twice my size. I hoped they understood that my pictures would end up on a worthy and notable website called DomNuts, Sydney’s best doughnuts… and then some.
I was sure they’d be comfortable with it.
