The Donut Don #thursdaydoors

Norm’s Thursday Doors

Okay, I try to eat healthy. Hell, I DO eat healthier than I have in the past. But now and I then I want something indulgent. Not a sugary cookie from the grocery store bakery, not a cheap milk chocolate candy bar or brownie. But a real bakery made cupcake piled high with some yummy homemade (well made) frosting, preferably a perfect combo. Now, there is such a bakery here but it caters to folks who obviously don’t work or work nearby because any time I am able to go by there they are closed. Guess the Vanilla Bean doesn’t need my business.

BUT there is a little place that started off small, that caters to the need for simple indulgence, that has late hours every day but Sunday, and you can even design your own treat if you like.



I know what you’re thinking. A doughnut is a doughnut is a doughnut. But nooooo…Krispy Kreme aside ( and they must step aside) this little gem of a doughnut shop is the bomb. They create uniquely special flavors that range from the typical-Blueberry Cheesecake-to the unusual-Maple Bacon-and will even custom create one from a variety of toppings.




Looks pretty awesome right. You might also be thinking that anyone can make a good dessert with the right frosting. While they do a bang up job with theirs, which is the perfect amount of sweet without being dental shame sugary, it is the actual doughnut itself which sets them apart from the other players. It is the best cake doughnut ever-always consistent- and never fails to please. They are moist, not greasy and go perfectly with the toppings.

Those? Ummmm I believe we have a Boston Creme, Cookies and Cream, Blueberry, Apple Pie and Chocolate chip. Not sure about the cut off one, but it was good too! 🙊So, when we have had our dinner across the street at Jimmy Hula’s or simply want to indulge, we look for these simple but gloriously glowing doors.


S’mores, Blueberry Cheese S’mores, Blueberry, and Strawberry Creme
The Elvis! Peanut Butter, Banana and Chocolate..


My favorite? The Elvis of course. Banana, Peanut Butter and Chocolate. Oh, and they sell coffee too. We just never stay around for it. We prefer to get a box full and take them home where we can be alone with them. 😉💕

Wanna’ know what having one is like?




Just ask this guy….yeah Boston Cream Pie in a doughnut. Who’da thunk it?

(He’s so stoked they will be opening a location in Atlanta soon.) 👏🏻

Did I mention they make a Maple Bacon also? Bacoooon…..

    1. Well maybe it is a bread or pastry thing. I don’t recall seeing lost about those in Ireland except for soda breads. Maybe that is why. This doughnut, a cake doughnut, I think would be a real treat there, even without the fancy toppings. It is basic and goes so well with coffee. Maybe you should start a shop, Janey!

    1. Believe it or not that was in the original plan for the evening’s events but it got late and well…sorry. 😏 Now you have another reason to visit again! I love the Elvis. All the flavors are mild and blend well together.

  2. Maple Bacon…Boston Creme Pie…oh my word, they sound delicious! Unfortunately, that type of food is not on my eating plan, so I’m glad there is not a Donnie’s Donut shop in Appleton. It’s bad enough that the best cakes in town are only two blocks away…


    1. Like I said it is an indulgence but not nearly as suagr laden as a piece of cake or cupcake. So I don’t feel so bad. I have also discovered mug cakes recently which really cuts down on us overindulging.

  3. Gosh darn it! Cheryl, I have yet to eat my breakfast and you have me drooling! Oh do these look to die for! I’ve gone so long without sugar (except the occasional indulgence of dark chocolate) that if I ate one of these I’d feel ill. How I laughed at your last picture. LOL Oh yeah he was really into eating those yummies! Hope you have a great day!! 🤗
