I’m thrilled to have found this new doughnut place at Circular Quay.
The area has been screaming out for a decent doughnut joint, and Baked & Co. seems to have filled the void. There are quite a few ice-cream shops, and doughnuts have been sorely neglected in the highly tourist area. Until now.
Baked & Co., located where Zumbo used to be in the Gateway shopping mall, make their own doughnuts instore. They are always fresh and delicious.
They also do small doughnuts freshly fried in a cup with your choice of toppings. I’m going to have one of them before too long.
I decided to celebrate National Doughnut Day by going to Baked & Co. and seeing what they had to offer on the day.
There didn’t seem to be any acknowledgement of National Doughnut Day, but they did have a doughnut I had never seen anywhere before – a Watermelon Sherbet Doughnut. I had no choice but to buy one of those.
It had green icing with a candy watermelon on top.
Inside was a generous amount of thick, gelatinous watermelon jam.
For what it was, I quite enjoyed it. The dough was fresh, soft and tasty. The watermelon jam made it unique. While it was worth trying, if it’s a standard in their range, I probably wouldn’t get it again.
They don’t appear to have much of a web presence, and this could well be the first review available.
I’ll point out it’s ‘Baked & Co’ (not to be confused with another company called Bake & Co).
