Doughnut fans of Cambridge have had much cause for celebration over the past few weeks, with not one, but two new launches dedicated to delivering sugar-dusted dough balls to our doorsteps.
Up first, London brand Crosstown opened its store on 15 March, offering delivery of doughnuts, cookies and ice cream across Cambridge city and selected villages. Known for its signature sourdough doughnuts, Crosstown is a cult favourite with Londoners. There’s a mouth-watering selection of toppings and fillings, including peanut butter and blackcurrant compote, and chocolate ganache paired with crunchy honeycomb. Ice cream options include cookie flavour and vanilla bean crumble, while cookies range from classic choc chip to an oat and apricot number.
Meanwhile, there’s a new local venture from baker extraordinaire Katie Moore and We Three Club’s Alex White. This impressive duo have used their experience in the food industry to dream up Fortune Donuts, an artisan treat company whose branding is as delicious as its products. Two new flavours are launched weekly (Saturday at 9.30am for delivery on Fridays), with a box of four priced at £14. You can expect delectable flavours such as salted caramel brûlée and key lime pie.
