Custard Doughnut

A Gourmet Monstrosity

LOCATION: 73 Glenferrie Rd Malvern VIC Australia

Pierssene Bakery

PRICE: $3.00

This is perhaps the best known ?gourmet? bakery in Malvern and I am well acquainted with their high-quality sourdough bread and savory pastries. So it was with much surprise that I soon discovered the horror that awaited me in the form of a small custard doughnut. The custard was decent, with a well-chosen subtle level of vanilla, yet the sugar dusting on the outer shell was far too coarse. The dough was devastatingly stale, very dense and generally quite hideous. I could not help but feel that it served no valid purpose other than as a vehicle to transfer the eatable custard into one?s mouth. And yet this vehicle was a like a harsh and barbaric prison trapping the moderately sophisticated custard within. This doughnut reminded me of why I greatly dislike the western wheat flour doughnut: it is a blob of poorly produced dough with copious amounts of fat and sugar. To me, it is the symbol of all that is wrong with Western popular culture.

Those donuts look amesowe! There's a new place here called Donut Mart, and they have a giant party donut. I kind of want to throw a party, just for a reason to get the donut.
