    Here in the Bay, we’re in the midst of a donut renaissance. (It’s war, cupcakes!) Ushering in this local sugary explosion is a pair of grand openings dedicated to Homer’s favorite treat: Donut Savant and Doughnut Dolly. And, to add to the fried-carb insanity, there’s even a new burger made with a donut bun, and it's on wheels!

    So, in the spirit of our times, we girded our loins and logged in an extra spinning class to bring you our 13 favorite donuts, a baker's dozen celebrating everything from mom-and-pop classics to wildly imaginative artisanal creations (think spiked, bacon-injected, and crème-fraîche-filled options). Wanna see our top picks? We suggest pouring yourself a glass of milk, because we’re going on a no-calories-barred, crispy-and-creamy journey to celebrate the perfect storm of junk food, a once-in-a-year holiday, and our culinary zeitgeist of the moment. Start clicking…and get that dough!
