On the search for the best donut in Connecticut, as well as the best cider donut in Connecticut, brings us to Rogers Orchards in Southington.
This donut is quite dry, with the cake being a little lite on flavor. Which is a shame because this place feels like it should have breathtaking donuts.
But the key to this donut isn’t the cake, it’s the sugar coating.
From what I can tell there is minimal cinnamon in this dusting. What there is, however, is a healthy additional layer of apple cider flavor.
Imagine the different type of flavored sugars one can come across: vanilla sugar, lemon sugar, coffee sugar.
What they seem to do here is make an apple cider infused sugar. Then, the whole donut is deeply coated in this.
It makes for an added layer of cider flavor that takes a dry cake and brings it up to a really good cider donut.
