Thanks for dropping by mmm-yoso!!! on this humid day (we had some rain and then it hit 80). Nothing is perfect, but maybe a road trip will help. Kirk and Ed(from Yuma) are staying cool today.
I mentioned The Donut Man in one of my conglomerate posts last year and a few other local bloggers also drove North, all of us reporting on the infamous fresh strawberry donuts. Early this past Thursday, I checked a Facebook page, took the car to Costco for fuel and told The Mister to get ready. Road Trip!Yes, it's time for the short 'season' of peach donuts and their availability.
The signage is only hanging from the front of the building and not even yet set up on the side windows (as the strawberry signs are in the other posts). Also, the crowds had not yet descended upon this iconic Southern California donut shop.
I purchased two boxes of exactly the same choices (one box for cc and her family)(a Tiger's Tail, French Cruller and Buttermilk Bar) and drove back to San Diego (after a quick lunch across the street) and our road trip was done. No crowds (except on the freeways) and the peach donut run was history.
Oh-the donut itself is a very large raised and glazed donut, cut partly through and then just the fresh peaches in a glaze placed inside. The resulting confection was heavy in weight, the donut was light and airy with a crispy sweet outer shell. The filling wasn't as sweet as canned pie filling and the peaches still had texture.
