SHORTSTOP COFFEE AND DONUTS: Located in foodie central hub of Melbourne near Little Lonsdale Street, Shortstop is officially my favourite donut place! Even though I haven’t tried enough of the flavours, it definitely trumps Doughnut Time, Krispy Kreme etc. in all aspects of taste, texture and all-rounded deliciousness! YUMMO Luckily not a huuuuge selection even though it still took me ages to decide and settle on this maple walnut – which is one of their favourites, along with the sea salt, and matcha doughnuts.
Maple and Walnut Raised Doughnut – $5.0
The good fat: The walnut gave it an awesome nutty taste that toned down the sweetness of the maple. It was a delicious combination of flavours that really surprised me! Didn’t expect such a subtle blend and nothing overpoweringly sweet. Being a raised doughnut, the dough itself was very airy, light and pretty plain so it went will with the topping. I also enjoyed the hint of saltiness from the underlying butter. Also a pretty good portion size!
The bad fat: Wish the doughnut itself had a tinier hint of sweetness just so the flavour didn’t entirely come from the topping.
SHOULD YOU GET FAT HERE?
YES! Even if you’re not a huge doughnut fan, come here for a dessert or snack and be wowed by the interesting blend of flavours 🙂
