How could any donut roll of honour not include this doyen? Owner Susan Bell’s parents started Dandenong Market Donuts in their backyard in the late ’60s. Their famous purple-and-gold doughnut van still trundles around Greater Dandenong, bringing hot jammy joy to the masses. Dandee’s piping-hot wonderballs are fresh from the oil (but are far from oily), coated in crunchy sugar and brimming with strawberry jam. Their Nutella is also a life-affirming variation, its filling beautifully softened from the heat of the oil. For competitive munchers with the constitution of a rhino, the annual Dandee Donut why-stop-at-20 eating competition is a glory-glazed sporting phenomenon.
