Are donuts the new cupcakes? Or are they just …. doughnuts? The donut/doughnut community in Champaign-Urbana has grown in recent years, with some kind of donut to please just about everyone and anyone.
What’s so great about donuts: originally a breakfast food (not sure why?) donuts are a great treat for any time of day. They are one of the few baked goods that’s easy to get FRESH and even hot sometimes depending where you are. Donuts are great to share; they aren’t as expensive as some other sweets. They can be made in every possible flavor combination possible – but the classics are still just as good.
