- Doughnuts make up the breakfast of champions.
I know better than to ask who makes the best doughnuts in Kansas City. Other than suggesting that a man or woman doesn't know how to tend his or her smoker, that might be as close as we get to fighting words in this city. Instead, let us revel together in the hot, fatty circles that are the true reasons we get up each morning (even if the sun attempts to win our affection with two scoops of raisins).
Michael Krondl has written a love letter to doughnuts in a piece for Saveur, which tracks the confection's journey over the past several hundred years and why it has a special place in our arteries. The magazine also recently stepped inside Dunkin' Donuts' test kitchen. So in an effort to keep this civil, I'll ask for the last great doughnut you've crammed into your craw?
