Dum Dum Donuts: The new healthy donut!

dum dumRejoice! Hallelujah!… The world’s most healthiest donut has been created.

British artisan chef Paul Hurley, the maker of Dum Dum Donuts, claims his sweet treats are extremely less fatty than a normal donut – containing just 6g of fat per donut, compared to the typical 18g. Hurley, who used to work for Dunkin’ Donuts, claims that he has been able to make his donuts healthier, due to the fact that they are baked and not deep fried. 

The chef and his team have been working for over ten years to find “the perfect donut”. Talking about this, the chef told dailymail.co.uk: “I’ve been trying to create the world’s best doughnut since 1997, but you can’t just think about flavour, you need to also think about ethics: what people should be eating, and what they should be letting their kids eat.”

He continued: “Obviously we then add things like cream and jam and chocolate which bump up the calories and fat, but it will always be lower in fat than a doughnut that’s been floating in hot oil for a couple of minutes. We don’t even own a deep-fat fryer!”

The donuts come in a range of tempting flavours, including Kroconut (coconut cream and chocolate ganache), Almond Cream & Pistachio, Banoffee, Chocolate and Raspberry. They are also healthy kronuts (croissant/donuts) on offer too!

Currently Dum Dum donuts has a pop-up Donutterie at Westfield Stratford City shopping centre until  Sunday (February 9), however it will be opening its own venue at Box Park, in Shoreditch, east London, from  February 25, according to bakeryinfo.co.uk.

What’s even better is that they are reasonably priced, at £1.80 for a single donut and £6 for a box of six! (The croissant variants are priced slightly higher however.)

Mmm I can’t wait to try one! (Guilt-free).
