Well winter has come and I thought I’d start my hibernation with a 6 pack of Uncle Donut’s latest offerings. Without further ado the June menu looks like this:
1 Wagon Wheel- Raspberry Gel, Milk Chocolate, Marshmallows
2 Turkish Delight- Turkish Delight, White Chocolate, Fairy Floss
3 Golden Gaynetto- Toffee Custard, Chocolate, Gaytime Crumble
4 Black Forrest- Sour Cherries, Dark Chocolate Mouse, Chocolate Glaze
5 Baklava- Toasted Pistachio & Walnut Crumb, Honey Shards, Orange Blossom Mist
6 Napoleon Mandarin- Mandarine Curd, Coconut Buttercream, Cacoa
With a menu that intricate you can expect to pay $6 bucks a pop. And that might not be for everyone. Some people I have had a chin wag with don’t believe in paying that much for a doey, and look thats ok. Just know that when you and your mates go to Uncle Donut you’ll have to head 50 metres across Moorabool St and spend your hard-earned cash at 7/11.
Clockwise from top: Black Forrest, Baklava, Golden Gaynetto, Wagon Wheel, Napoleon Mandarin, Turkish Delight.
I’ve realised that when Uncle Donut bring out a replica of a particular product they nail it. And the wagon wheel was no different. This is a Wagon Wheel only the biscuit has been substituted with donut- fair trade off really!
For the Sugar loving carnies out there! Fairy floss and turkish delight adorned atop a white chocolate donut. Am I at the show? Really delightful.
Oh my! Put your hands in the air and say woot woot. This ones a winner. Epic secret recipe “Gaytime” exterior crusts a toffee custard so delicious I could of eaten 3. If you only eat one donut this month it must be this. Actually if you only eat one donut in your lifetime, it must be this!
Black Forrest chocolate is a staple in my kitchen so this one had a lot to live up to, and it didn’t disappoint. Let’s talk about that choc glaze, so soft, so sticky so sweet. My favourite icing form UD ever. And that’s only the start. Do I really have to tell you how good the mousse is? Grab a bite with some cherry and bang- Black Forrest. If you hate glazed cherry pick it off and you have Geelong’s best Chocolate donut- two for one!
Baklava would never be my first pick anywhere, whether in original or donut form. This ones for those that love their nuts, and maybe the healthy one of the bunch?
Mandarin, never been a fan but with trademark Uncle Donut tang this one delivers. Mandarin flavour perfectly balanced with velvety coconut buttercream topped with Cocao- almost sounds like a raw vegan treat produced by a European revolutionist!
Ok that’s my opinion for all its worth (nothing), now go and form yours- 100 Little Malop St, Geelong, Tuesday thru Saturday.
Please note: In no way shape or form am I a food critic, I am just passionate about eating dessert.
