    Doughnuts are the sweet treat of the moment, just look at the proliferation of trendy doughnut bars in our Capital to see that the appetite is still very strong to indulge in these yeasted treats. Whether you like them simple and traditional dipped in sugar or salted caramel and honeycomb…the humble doughnut looks like it will stand the test of time.

    With the right equipment and set up Doughnuts are easy to produce. More importantly they offer lots of potential to add value and create exciting flavour combinations, which means being able to command premium prices. Some flavour trends such as coffee and tea, boozy doughnuts or gourmet combinations such as cinnamon and salted caramel, crème brulee or cardamom and orange stir consumer imagination and taste buds. On the other hand, the popularity of the simple sugared doughnut or Boston crème shows no sign of abating. Kells Wholemeal has a range of premix doughnut and decorating solutions that will mean you are ahead of the trend.
