Do-Nuts So Old School, They Won't Drop the Hyphen
Probably everyday since 1935, Tucson residents have driven past the massive Le Cave's Bakery, looked up at its vintage facade and wondered, "what's a vegetable do-nut?"
The answer, it turns out, is both deceptive and delicious. Of course the recipe is an old family secret, but we're assured that despite the beautiful greasiness, it's not anything too lard-y.
Whatever it is, these old fashioned do-nuts have attracted admirers far and wide for their perfect balance of light, fluffy texture and rich, sugary taste. Additionally, Le Cave's keeps their do-nuts traditional by sticking to the old-school flavors: powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, chocolate frosted and maple glazed, each one completely covered in a healthy coating of the sweet stuffno bald spots here.
While the bakery is not necessarily a place for donut inventiveness, it is a stop on the route of donut history, where you will leave wondering if any of the new-fangled flavors from other donut shops are really necessary.
