I’ve said it before, but it’s great that so many cultures have their own versions of doughnuts. And so many are different from the others. I’d never heard of a Cypriot doughnut until I heard of The Cypriot Baker. So I had to give it a go.
I got a Strawberry Jam Donut from The Cypriot Baker’s market stall at the Peakhurst Night Markets.
They had other treats and other doughnut flavours, including Caramilk, Biscoff Lotus, Golden Gaytime and Nutella – none of which sound particularly Cypriot, but who cares really?
I was pleased that my Strawberry Jam Douhgnut had real strawberry jam in it. If you think thats a funny thing for me to say, I say it because most jam doughnuts contain flavoured apple puree. Really!
I would have liked a bit more jam in it.
The doughnut was nicely cooked and had a good hearty consistency. It had a good covering of sugar o nthe outside, giving it that sweet touch it need.
Although it was a Cypriot doughnut, I feel like it was similar to a lot of other doughnuts I’ve had. That’s not a criticism, just an observation. I’d have thought a Cypriot doughnut would be similar to Greek Loukoumades. Not in this case.
