My brother and his wife recently moved to Georgetown, TX (about 30 miles north of Austin), and I do my best to visit them as much as I can now, especially to see their children, my gorgeous and Oh so cute twin nieces. NYC came down for a visit as well, so we were able to hang out in G-Town with the fam together. The last day of NYC’s trip and on the way south to the Austin Airport, we decided to hit Round Rock Donuts for a late breakfast. Now if you haven’t heard of Round Rock Donuts it’s been shown on Man V Food for its Texas Sized Donut and in Bon Appetit Magazine as one of the Top 10 Best Places for Donuts in America. That’s a pretty big deal! NYC and our sister-in-law love donuts….I’m never been a fan, but I really wanted to check the place out, so we had to make a stop there. Another plus, is it’s only 11 miles from my brother’s house. The place is a lot smaller than I expected, but who cares because their donuts WOWed me! We only ordered the glaze, but that was enough for us. The orange tint from the glazed donut was a little perplexing because you kind of expect some sort orange flavor, but supposedly it’s from using just egg yolks. The first bite was incredible….light and fluffy, not dense and cakey at all, with just the right amount of glaze on top. Superb!! Also, we got some kolaches (not a fan of either), but they were tasty as well. The bread was a little sweet and light on the outside with a nice appetizing sausage on the inside. None of us were disappointed, and I would definitely recommend a stop there if you are ever in Round Rock. It’s not far off I-35, so go there if you can….it won’t take long!

Glazed Donut - Do you see the orange tint?
