Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts

By JulieVR |

Among doughnut enthusiasts, Seattle’s Top Pot reigns supreme. Now, doughnut aficionados everywhere can enjoy these tasty treats at home. I was lucky enough to get a preview this spring when Jess Thomson, a Seattle-based blogger and freelance writer, brought doughnuts to the IACP conference in Austin, Texas to celebrate the launch of her new book, Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts.

It’s a delicious collection of 50 doughnut recipes, from the classic Old-Fashioned to their signature Pink Feather Boa. Doughnuts are hip, in case you hadn’t noticed – beyond recipes, the book is packed with doughnut-making tools, terms, and techniques (no, you don t need a deep fryer!), as well as a wide range of toppings and glazes, from chocolate to lavender. If you’re into homemade doughnuts, this book needs to go on your Christmas wish list.

Mark and Michael Klebeck are construction guys turned entrepreneurs who opened Top Pot Doughnuts in 2002. Jess lives in Seattle with her husband and son, writes about food and has a fantastic blog.

    Believe me these donuts are the absolute best. I had one over the summer when I traveled out to see my daughter. This was the first stop we made and absolutely worth it.
