I’ll freely admit that I’m not a big doughnut person. In fact, I’m pretty sure my distaste for them has even caused a few Saturday morning squabbles between Aaron and I since he is such a fan, but I was not sorry when he convinced me to try Westhampton Pastry Shop.
Having just completed our weekly long run, we were pretty starving and a bit indecisive (or maybe just looking for an excuse to each order three).
We ordered a glazed, a prune danish, a chocolate glazed, a cinnamon twist, an apple danish, and a cream cheese danish.
The danishes were absolutely delicious: flaky and perfectly glazed. I will definitely be trying their other flavors; however, the highlight for me was the cinnamon twist and the glazed.
The outside of the twist had the slightest bit of crunch, but the inside was soft and doughy. The flavor reminded me of eating churros as a child. (YUM.)
The glazed doughnuts are massive: I felt like I was eating a double-decker doughnut. It was still warm when we got it home and I devoured every last delicious bite. So much for not being a doughnut person, huh?
What’s your favorite type of doughnut? Do you have a favorite bakery in Richmond?
