Round Rock Donuts

Review by: Michael Stern

In my book, a Round Rock donut is what Krispy Kreme wants to be. I like the handsome plain glazed one with its healthy yellow hue, especially when utterly fresh. It is more substantial than an evaporative Krispy Kreme, yet not the least bit heavy like a more dunkable cake donut. The balance between glaze and dough is ideal: sweet enough to disallow sugar in one’s coffee and doughy enough so that a mere three or four is quite a satisfying breakfast.

Several years ago, when the Roadfood.com eating tour left Austin and stopped in Round Rock for a pre-BBQ sugar fix, I learned also to love Round Rock’s “pig in a blanket.” Like central Texas’s ubiquitous kolache, it has a tender, sweet dough that beautifully complements a sausage inside, especially if it’s the hot jalapeno version with cheese.
