On the search for the best donut in Connecticut, and the best cider donut in CT, brings us to Beardsley’s Cider Mill & Orchard in Shelton.
The cake here is super moist (yeah, I said it) and dusted in cinnamon and sugar. The cinnamon and sugar are very light, not contributing much to the overall taste.
The cake crust, however, has on odd flavor to it. Its a borderline between banana bread and artificial candy apple flavoring (red apple, not green apple).
Certain cider donuts have this happen to them, and I’ll make it a priority to find out why. But for now, the overall donut is moist (again) but with an odd flavor and only a small contribution of cinnamon and sugar. Its good, but needs more.
