DIPPED DONUTS Inc. is Toronto’s source for scratch-made donuts hand-dipped in glazes and toppings made from locally sourced ingredients. A true gourmet local treasure.
We are a young group of Toronto's finest and edgiest bakers which means we got some serious aesthetics going on. From the graffiti to the JDilla tribute to the giant mixer nicknamed Dr. Dre. We have created a vibe that suits our Kensington Market Location.
We love being creative and we are constantly coming up with new ideas (like, hiding an entire Ferrero Rocher in a donut bomb).
These are yeast donuts, airy, fluffy, and spongy, the lighter-than-air structure instantly collapsing as soon as you sink your teeth in.
These are high quality gourmet donuts which means we take our process seriously. Our Proofing time varies depending on the donut but the dough usually takes around 20 minutes to rise, on busy days you may have to wait a bit for a fresh batch of your favourite donut if we've just run out but that is when you know THESE DONUTS ARE WORTHWHILE.
Frying in vegetable oil in a special donut fryer, however, takes just minutes. A screen drops all the donuts in at once so they’re consistently cooked, wooden rods used for manual flipping.
Fresh donuts are then dipped into glazes made from ingredients sourced right here in Kensington Market.
Nutty Chocolate Berry donuts are glazed with dark chocolate, topped with an organize raspberry drizzle and hand-chopped toasted hazelnuts, giving off the flavour profile of an elegant dessert though the warm, chocolatey donut is appropriately messy.
Cookies n’ Cream donuts have a rich cream cheese glaze topped with crushed Oreo cookie crumbs and half an Oreo.
The glaze for London Fog donuts is made with organic Earl Grey tea from nearby cafe Moonbean. With a little vanilla for a sweet, almost milk flavour, this donut is fragrant and darn near sophisticated.
Moonbean coffee is also used for the glaze on Viet Coffee donuts, cutely topped with a dark chocolate espresso bean.
Donuts with a rosewater glaze and roast hand-chopped pistachios follow more of a Middle Eastern flavour profile.
Mocha Filled donut bombs are rolled in a sugar containing espresso also sourced from Moonbean, somewhat obviously filled with a rich, dense, chocolatey mocha pastry cream.
Our Lemon Meringue donut bomb is a miniature mountain of soft bruleed meringue on top.
Our Maple Bacon bomb is the piece de resistance, the airy donut hole filled with sweet maple pastry cream that harmonizes almost sinfully with smoked bacon from Sanagan's across the street.
The donuts here don’t rely on gimmicks or outrageous toppings to get their point across; just quality flavours.
