London's Best Doughnuts

Doughnuts: there’s more to them than meets the eye. Forget the overcooked, rock-like, over-sugared excuses for doughnuts you get at the local fair, and instead treat yourself by heading to one of the below to taste our favourite buns in town. 

Winner:

St JOHN Bakery

St JOHN Bakery is where you can find London's best doughnuts. Filled with sticky, seasonal homemade jam, these fluffy buns have become a Food Edited. addiction. The salted caramel custard doughnut is our favourite and is best eaten on foot while wandering the ropewalk at Maltby St Market on a lazy Sunday morning.

Contender:

Bread Ahead

Tucked away in foodie haven Borough Market, Bread Ahead serve scrumptious doughnuts for a steal. The other baked goods are tasty, but Justin Gellatly's sweet creations are balls of doughy deliciousness. Warm, sticky dough, amply filled and generously coated with sugar, is enough to make us drool.

Contender:

Duck & Waffle

Our only savoury doughnut in the edit - but a worthy contender to London's best - is this sphere of spicy ox cheek from Duck & Waffle. The ox is succulent, piquant and surrounds an oozing centre of sticky apricot jam, before being finished with a dusting of smoked paprika sugar. The combination of sweet and savoury in this dish is one of the best we've ever tasted. Yum.
