Super hyped and Fluffy donuts from Burnt Ends Bakery
Burnt Ends is perhaps known by every foodie in Singapore for its stunning roast meats and amazing sanger burger. But did you know Burnt Ends also had a bakery that churned out arguably the best donuts in Singapore?
If you didn’t, you might be excited to hear that you can snag those donuts, now found in an idyllic bakery space at Burnt Ends’ new Dempsey Hill home.
They are no longer hidden away on the second floor of Teck Lim Road and the new bakery shopfront is brightly lit and spacious, serving up coffee too.
Donut Worry, Just be Happy
If you’re craving great donuts, look no further than the Mixed Stuffed Donuts ($24/half dozen, $52/baker’s dozen) with Passionfruit Curd, Vanilla Cream and Nutella.
As my grip buried into the supple surface, it gently bent to the contours of my fingers before splitting apart to reveal a glut of filling that Burnt Ends Bakery generously injected into each piece.
Each bite was softer than a cloud and gorgeously underscored by a delicate chew. I daresay they make the best donuts in Singapore, even with all the trendy new bomboloni shops popping up.
Nostalgia Overload with Local Flavours
I also returned again to Burnt Ends Bakery just to get a taste of their passionfruit flavour bombs again and mixed in some of their Pandan Donuts.
This was an elegant local-inspired flavour with whiffs of Pandan fragrance — but not too overwhelming — and is complemented by a coating of shredded coconut that added a sharp aroma and charming textural contrast.
Another nostalgic treat at Burnt Ends Bakery are the Milo Dinosaur Donuts ($24/half dozen, $52/baker’s dozen) which came filled with milo cream and a helping of Milo powder meant to be sprinkled liberally.
Whilst they were heavily raved about, I was cautiously optimistic because of the inherent cloyingness of milo.
I have to admit these babies beat my expectations. Velvety and thick whilst luxurious loaded with malty flavours, the milo cream was as decadent as decadence comes.
I still felt a hint of cloyingness but it was not the overwhelming diabeetus I was expecting. It’s a case of Burnt Ends Bakery delivering with the simple things done well. Truly blissful little treats, though not quite the culinary revelation, which they admittedly don’t need to be.
As long as you manage your expectations despite the long wait, these are definitely worth the money.
