• Oakleigh Doughnut Co (Oakleigh)

Everyone loves doughnuts. And if you do nut, you need to try Oakleigh Donought Co. I was recently given a take home six-pack of these beauties. Here are just some of the flavours on offer, and what I thought.

Six pack from the Oakleigh Doughnut Co

Passion Fruit Meringue Pie
A sweet and thick meringue coated the top, and a thick and intensely tangy passionfruit cream filled the centre. The dough was soft and fluffy with a crisper edge. It was not too sweet. This was Mark’s favourite.

It was based on my favourite Greek dessert. So there was no saying no! The chefs gave this beauty a soft and fluffy dough with crisp edges (like the one above). This was generously filled with really creamy custard, and garnished with a mini dripper to add honey to taste.


Gluten Friendly Baked Brownie
Vegan, gluten free…Oakleigh Doughnut Co caters to everyone. This was a rich chocolate brownie, decorated with sweet mint cream and drizzles of icing. It looked a treat, but this one was a bit too sweet for me.

Baklava Cake
This was made with a thicker, fried dough to what I would call a more traditional styled doughnut. This was crispier too. The topping was crushed pastry and pistachio.

The picnic came highly recommended and was my favourite. It was delectably more-ish. The top was covered with peanuts, salted caramel and chocolate. The dough was like that of the top two above.

Vegan Oreo Cream
I was impressed that the vegan oreo cream lacked nothing. The dough was still fluffy, the edges still crisp. Part of the trick to this was a light dipping of icing around the outside.

Overall, I would have to say this was the most interesting and extravagant doughnut tasting I have ever had. The Oakleigh Doughnut Co have gone out of their way to create interesting flavours that taste delicious. I really enjoyed the fluffy cake dough in particular and look forward to trying more flavours next time.
