Fall Flavors at Glazed & Infused

Glazed & Infused

The official onset of autumn means aromas of cider and pumpkin and cranberries are wafting through the air. Sure you could go the traditional route and save room for pie and warm beverages, but doughnuts are an apropos medium for fall flavors as well, considering the inherent versatility in dough recipes, glazes and frostings, fillings, and other garnishes. The sky is truly the limit, making doughnuts veritable sponges for seasonal flavors. And so comes the whimsical new fall lineup of flavors from Glazed & Infused, a quirky doughnut shop with an infallible penchant for offbeat seasonal flare.

A doughnut or donut (/ˈdnət/ or /ˈdnʌt/; see spelling differences) is a type of fried dough confectionery or dessertfood. The doughnut is popular in many countries and prepared in various forms as a sweet snack that can be homemade or purchased in bakeries, supermarkets, food stalls, and franchised specialty outlets. They are usually deep-fried from a flour dough, and typically either ring-shaped or without a hole and often filled. Other types of batters can also be used, and various toppings and flavorings are used for different types, such as sugar, chocolate, or maple glazing. In addition to flour, doughnuts may also include such ingredients as water, leavening, eggs, milk, sugar, oil/shortening, natural flavors and/or artificial flavors.[1][2]

The two most common types are the toroidal ring doughnut and the filled doughnut—which is injected with fruit preserves,cream, custard, or other sweet fillings. A small spherical piece of dough may be cooked as a doughnut hole. Other shapesinclude rings, balls, and flattened spheres, as well as ear shapes, twists and other forms. Doughnut varieties are also divided into cake and risen type doughnuts.
