When I was in Hawaii a few years ago, I tried a cinnamon scroll from a place called Cinnabon. Good Lord, it was glorious. No cinnamon scroll has or ever will come close to that taste sensation. I highly recommend trying a scroll from Cinnabon, but remember you have to go to an actual store where they make them fresh, not to a place that re-sells them.

So I’ve had pretzels that are reminiscent of the flavour, but just not the same. And the famous Sydney cinnamon scroll maker, Oregano Bakery, goes for a completely different style.

Anyway, it’s interesting to see Simon Says Donuts do a Cinnamon Crumble Doughnut. Unfortunately it’s nothing like a Cinnabon scroll, but I can still dream.

The Cinnamon Crumble Doughnut has a layer of soft vanilla icing coated with a cinnamon crumble on top. It’s this combination that makes me think of the cinnamon scroll.

The cinnamon crumble looks thick and threatens to be too much cinnamon, but it’s not the case. The cinnamon flavour is not at all overbearing. In fact it makes a nice difference to the usual cinnamon sugar that doughnuts are often coated in.

The Simon Says dough is a good, one which they say they make from scratch – not using a pre-mixed flour.

Where do you get Simon Says Donuts doughnuts? I got mine from Peakhurst Foodies Markets in Sydney’s south, but it looks like they’ve moved to the Ramsgate Markets. Check their website or Facebook page for updates. You can also order online directly.
