Did you know that there are no Dunkin' Donuts in Cali?  
no joke. i'm serious.

When Shane and I first moved out here, one of the first things I did was go on the DD website and search for a location near my new home.  NONE. I was devastated and suffered withdrawls the first couple months.

They got really bad in September and I felt a pang of jealousy every time a NJ friend would post a Dunkin' related FB status.  "Just got my first DD pumpkin coffee of the season!" or "Nothing like a DD iced coffee to start your day ".   I'd yell in my head, OMG, be a little more sensitive!!  Don't you know I'm suffering out here?! 

When I visited home in December, the first thing my Dad did after picking me up from the airport was stop at a DD, at 5 in the morning, because he's great like that.

But I digress.  Because this post isn't actually about Dunkin' Donuts coffee at all. 

Or about how much better I think Dunkin' is than Starbucks.
This post is actually about doughnuts.  It all started on Tuesday night when Shane innocently said he was craving a doughnut.  Jenna's glazed cake doughnuts immediately popped into my head.  I impulsively went shopping during my lunch break on Wednesday for a doughnut pan at Target.  

They did not have doughnut pans...but there were mini bundt pans.  And you better believe I bought one! 

These were so easy to make and they taste amazing!!!  I made doughnut "holes" in my mini cupcake tin and brought them into work.  Let's just say, that by the end of the day they were all gone!

Question: Will you buy and open up a Dunkin'Donuts in San Diego? All kidding aside, if I had the money, I totally would.

Starbucks or Dunkin'? I think you know my answer...


  1. Yea people are SERIOUS about their DD! haha. When I lived in Chicago they were always packed. Can you at least buy the coffee in stores?? Not sure if that even compares :P

  2. Those are adorable! I could probably scarf down the whole plateful in under 5 minutes. Ha!

  3. I was hopeful when I bought my own bag to brew, but it just doesn't cut it!

    I think the mini bundt pan can make any baked good look extra cute. It was only 12 bucks at Target...go get one!!

  4. nice i've never made donuts before. I feel your pain we don't have a DD in Seattle either so I drink Starbucks by defaut

  5. I never even knew Dunkin Donuts was known for their coffee until a couple months ago! I am a Starbs girl...although I am from California, so I bet i'd love DD if I were an east coaster.
