Like peas and carrots...
Peanut butter and jam. Pasta and meatballs. Ham and cheese. Some things just go together.
Sunday marks the beginning of fall and, with all the cool, crisp weather, clear skies and breathtaking leaf peeping, I start to crave the delicious (and maybe even diabolical) duo of cake doughnuts and apple cider. I don't know many people who can resist a cake doughnut, what with its slightly firm and crusty honey-brown exterior that gives way (with a delectable crunch) to a light, moist interior. The best are the rather substantial ones with a bit of homemade heft. And they must have those glorious, toothsome ridges on the bottom, all without leaving a film of greasiness on the palate. And good apple cider is a treat, whether it's served cold to be refreshing or hot with a cinnamon stick to be soothing...
Who do you say has the best cider and cake doughnuts in town?
