Let’s talk about donuts. I am positively obsessed with the pastry magic that is Earnest Donuts. Dallas Donut blogger Rory (@donutdigest) told me about Earnest Donuts and asked if she could bring some over for my Cinderella Ball. I was ecstatic because donuts are having a total moment in Dallas and I often see them pop up at parties. I was ill prepared for what showed up at my house!
In addition to their usual bakery spread, Earnest Donuts makes custom-order donuts for a wide variety of themed parties. (Follow them on Instagram and you’ll have tons of donut inspiration in your feed!) For Cinderella, they made clocks about to hit the stroke of midnight, magic wands, and pumpkins. My party guests were wowed by the cuteness. The donuts were huge and fluffy, exactly what you want in a yeast donut.
Earnest Donuts also sent over (via Rory) a bunch of flavors for me to try and I can’t even wait to dive in and tell you about these! The day after Cinderella, I invited my friend Jacob over for an official donut tasting, a donut flight if you will. (Which, by the way, is a super fun entertaining idea itself.)
From left to right, top to bottom, we have an old fashioned buttermilk donut with chocolate glaze, an old fashioned buttermilk donut, a red velvet cake donut, a blueberry crumble donut, key lime pie donut, coconut cream pie donut, blueberry cake donut, and everything bagel donut.
I thought for sure that the red velvet would be my favorite but actually the coconut cream pie donut had me positively swooning. It’s filled with luscious coconut cream that isn’t too sweet. If you love coconut like me, you have to try this donut. The key lime had a great texture but was much more tart.
The blueberry cake donut Jacob and I agreed was our mutual favorite, not counting the custom Cinderella glazed donuts. It’s super moist with a great texture and pops of blueberry. We also adored the old fashioned buttermilk donuts, which isn’t a donut I normally gravitate to. This donut held up very well and was good for days, whereas the yeast donuts need to be eaten up in a day.
They also sent over an entire box of assorted donut holes: croissant holes, blueberry crumble bites, cinnamon sugar holes, chocolate fudge holes, and glazed donut holes. Rory was the most enthusiastic about the croissant holes but my favorite was the cinnamon sugar donut holes. I’m a sucker for cinnamon! The original glazed were delicious and the chocolate fudge were a lot of fun. My friend Rebecca liked the blueberry donut holes best, which are possibly the prettiest donut holes I’ve ever seen!
These are seriously some of the best donuts I’ve ever had. If I lived closer, I would be there all the time! Earnest Donuts is located in Lewisville, Texas, about thirty minutes from downtown Dallas. If you go, tell them The Rose Table sent you and feel free to pick me up a coconut cream while you’re there! For more donut inspiration, follow @donutdigest on Instagram.
