Puerto Rico’s Rio Grande is not a hotbed of donuts. But whoever is making them at Puertorrican Bakery knows his / her stuff and should considering opening some more spots all around. Their white-frosted donut was great–thoroughly enjoyed.
The donut was big. Look at the size of that thing in comparison to the paper plate!
Though the dough was more doughy than I typically like, it was light.
*and really the part that set this one apart* The frosting was like a warm, sweet, thick blanket of sugar melded together to cover the donut lovingly.
Now, frosting is pretty much sugar, but applied in this way, it wasn’t just a bunch of sugar thrown together. Or, maybe it was–I’m not a baker. I just enjoyed the difference style the frosted was applied. It held together in a pseudo-chewy factor.
When I saw the donut from behind glass, I didn’t think much of it. However, when I got the donut in all its hefty, frosted glory… and saw the frosting just drape over the side like a waterfall of sweetness, I was excited. As was probably the dentist industry.
In the end, the frosting was a lot. I mean… a lot. It was draped / spilling over, after all. But I enjoyed the donut as a great way to start off my vacation.
