I don’t know. There was something not quite the same about my Choc Malt Cookie Doughnut from Dr Dough at the Mug Life Cafe in Pyrmont.
The dough seemed exactly the same as your common cafe-type doughnut.
What I mean by that is that most cafes get their doughnuts from one of the big commercial makers of sweets and other stuff.
Places like Yum.com.au, also known as Bob & Pete’s 100% Yum, also known as Barclay Street Bakery. There are a couple of others as well.
The dough has a distinctive, commercial flavour.
There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s just that independent bakers can do a better job.
So I’m wondering if Dr Dough is getting their doughnuts commercially made, and then filling and decorating them.
Or are they buying pre-mixed flour?
Either way, the flavour seems to be commercial.
It’s a shame.
My Choc Malt Cookie Doughnut is described as having a Vanilla Malt Glaze, Oreo and Milk Chocolate Ganache.
Yeah, it had all that.
But for what it was, it just didn’t seem very special.
