The Donut Diaries - Second Night

Each night of Hanukkah, donut blogger and connoisseur Temim Fruchter will share one of America’s best donuts to devour during the holiday. Click here to read the first night’s installment and check back each day for a different city’s top donut.

Mighty-O Donuts, Seattle

Attention vegans: If you have not been to this incredible (and adorable) donut joint in Seattle, you need to drop what you’re doing and head over (Seattlites) and book a ticket (the rest of you). Now. And attention skeptical non-vegans: “Pleasantly surprised” will feel like an understatement. The flavor and texture of these donuts are sublime. These unique vegan cake donuts (they have some yeast varieties as well, but uncharacteristically, I prefer the cake in this case) are the perfect marriage between breakfast and dessert, with shockingly good donut shop coffee, to boot. Try the cinnamon sugar donuts for an out-of-body experience. Incidentally, they also make a yearly batch of organic vegan sufganiyot!

Hanukkah relevance: I have actually eaten these donuts on Hanukkah proper, so I can vouch for the fact that given their cake-yeast-hybrid qualities, they are so light and melt-in-your-mouth that you could probably eat one for each of the eight nights and not experience even the slightest bit of donut burnout.
