Best Dessert of 2016 - Bon Appétit

“Close your eyes and imagine the greatest doughnut you’ve ever eaten. Now, multiply its taste, texture, and unadulterated pleasure by a million — that’s what biting into Hole’s molasses-bourbon doughnut is like. This is no happy accident. The dough is hand-shaped, fried to order in rice-bran oil, and then glazed with the sweet-boozy sauce. The result is a hot, misshapen, crunchy-on-the-outside, airy-on-the-inside yeast donut of the highest order.”

"Rolled and cut by hand, the doughnuts are naked, elemental, and real. Their lack of uniformity is symbolic of this funky city and its unpretentious food culture, where back to basics is best."
