Ask any Washingtonian where to find the best doughnuts and their answer will inevitably be “Top Pot”. Since their Seattle debut back in February of 2002, Top Pot Doughnuts has made it their mission to bring the nostalgia of an authentic 1920′s doughnut shop into the 21st century. With hand-forged doughnuts made fresh daily in small batches, Top Pot has not only captured the aesthetic of the vintage doughnut shop, but managed to create doughnuts that are renowned as some of the best in the country.
In the short time since its opening, Top Pot has attracted the attention of locals, corporations and even boasts President Obama as a fan of their doughnuts. Even if you haven’t stopped in to one of Top Pot’s locations yet, you’ve probably already seen their old fashioned doughnuts in the pastry case of your local Starbucks. With eight locations including one in downtown Bellevue, access to these delectable delicacies is never more than a short trip away. But wait – Top Pot may be even closer than you think. How close you ask? Try right inside your own kitchen!
With the much anticipated release of their new cookbook, Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts: Secrets and Recipes for the Home Baker, the doughnuts that made Top Pot famous are now divulged in concise, easy to follow recipes. Seasoned bakers will enjoy being able to make dozens of their favorite treats without leaving the comfort of their kitchen, while cooking rookies will appreciate the step-by-step instructions and ability to make professional quality doughnuts without buying any expensive frying equipment.
So whether you’re a local fan or live across the country, make your kitchen into your own personal Top Pot with their new, easy to use cookbook!
