on Block Island
Our recent visit to Block Island was a blast (more info coming soon). I expected a great time with the family, the ocean, and seafood but was surprised to come home raving about donuts and pies.
Aldo’s Bakery supplies the pies – we had an excellent blueberry one with a buttery crust that was heaven a la mode with their homemade ice cream.
The true gem though, are the fresh “killer” donuts from Payne’s in the New Harbor. Now, I have had many a great donut in my time, but these warm, sugar dusted treats rank among the top five at least.
I had three(!) in one sitting, truly living it up when on vacation.
These are so addictive that they could make anyone fat within a few months, so it’s a mixed blessing that they aren’t available closer to home.
But what do you think?
what is the recipe for the original sugar cake donut at paynes killer donuts?! so glad to posted something about this – – they really are the best I have ever had!
