A doughnut for every day of the week

13 May, 2013

As Saturday marked the start of National Doughnut Week, this week’s BAKO NW blog has been taken over by these lip-lickingly indulgent treats.

Running between the 11th and 18th May this year, National Doughnut Week sees bakers across the country cook up all manner of delicious doughnuts, with profits going towards national charity, The Children’s Trust. This is an opportunity for bakers to help out a very worthy cause, so to inspire local bakers to get involved we’ve come up with a different doughnut flavour idea for every day of the week.

Jam doughnut

Classic jam Mondays

The original and some say still the best, they’re also easy to craft thanks to specially prepared doughnut mixes like Craigmillar’s doughnut concentrate, available from BAKO North Western.

Healthy option Tuesdays

Readi-Bake brand baked doughnuts contain 40 per cent less fat than traditional fried ring doughnuts, making them a great alternative for more health-conscious customers who still can’t resist a good doughnut now and again.


Zingy lemon Wednesdays

Lantmannen’s lemon crème doughnuts balance a refreshing lemon centre with sweet white chocolate flavour icing, all topped with lemon pearl sugar topping.

Creamy custard Thursdays

BAKO own label have created a piece of doughnut artistry with these continental custard filled doughnuts, decorated with swirling icing patterns for an elegant finish.


Rich chocolate Fridays

The darker twin of BAKO’s own label custard doughnuts, these treats are a chocoholic’s dream come true.


Sprinkle Saturdays

Available in a whole host of different colour combinations, sprinkle toppings from the Secret Ingredients range are an easy way to give home-baked doughnuts that extra element of excitement.


Gooey caramel Sundays

For a truly luxurious end to National Doughnut Week, why not smother BAKO Unfinished Ring Doughnuts in gooey BAKO caramel fudegice and liberally sprinkle with Secret Ingredients caramel cubes?

Local bakers, we’d love to hear from you if you’re joining in with National Doughnut Week; what type of doughnuts will you be serving up for your customers?
