Remember those days where Singaporeans would queue for hours to get their hands on some Krispy Kreme Donuts? The fervour for Original Glazed may have died down, but Singapore's love for this deep-fried sweet treat is eternal. The doughnut is making a serious comeback with pictures of the stuff loaded with luscious caramel, glossy chocolate, or simply sprinkled with sugar filling up our Instagram feed. So if like us, you’re going nuts for some doughnuts, these places have cravings covered.

RECOMMENDED: The best bakeries offering cake delivery in Singapore

  • Restaurants
  • Sandwich shop
  • Chinatown

This hole-in-the-wall shop is home to some of the best, well-stuffed sandwiches and glorious doughnut creations. Pre-‘circuit breaker’, grabbing a bite of its famed creations was close to impossible. Now, with its online store, it's much easier to place an order for these sweet creations (word of caution: they still sell out rather quickly). A box of four goes for $20, and some of Korio’s gourmet flavours include the original glazed, honey smoked sea salt, caramalised buscuits, and a locally inspired pandan glazed doughnut drizzled with salted gula Melaka.

Known for its cupcakes, Fluff Bakery also serves up delicious stuffed doughnuts. Like its popular cupcakes, the doughnuts are usually sold out by the end of the day. But don't worry about not getting any – you can still order some for self pick-up or get doughnuts delivered right to your house. Pick from the classic four flavours: chocolate hazelnut, strawberry cream pie, vanilla bean and New York cheesecake.

Sourbombe Artisanal Bakery

A homegrown outfit, Sourbombe Artisanal Bakery is named after its signature creation: sourbombe, a sourdough and Italian bomboloni hybrid. Flavours are dreamed up by Genevieve Lee runner-up of MasterChef Singapore 2018, yielding unconventional stuffings of Basque burnt cheesecake ($5.60), Thai tea and mango ($4.80), lavender-lime mascarpone ($4.80), and more. You'll need some fast reflexes to lock in an online order, but those patient enough can swing by its upcoming physical storefront which is due to open soon.

At The Fat Kid Bakery, bomboloni or Italian doughnuts ($3.50 to $5) are made using a two-year-old sourdough starter, and come with luscious fillings: suffused with toasty oolong, stuffed with tart-sweet summer berries, or bursting with warm apple jam. Those with a sweet tooth can now also swing by storefront at Ang Mo Kio to pick up a selection of signature bakes, including triple chocolate brownies ($15), so fudgy they melt in the mouth, and eclairs ($25 for 10).

What started out as a mobile van selling doughnuts and coffee in Tokyo has since grown to a popular chain with stores in Taiwan and Singapore. Many flock to Haritts for its Japanese-style doughnut (from $2.50), made lighter and fluffier than the usual variants. It’s all too easy to consume a few of these sweet circles in a single sitting, but making each batch is a time-consuming process. The dough has to be shaped and formed, by hand, then left to double proof. It then goes through a slow-frying process where air bubbles are pricked to yield an airy finish in the doughnuts. To get a taste of its special creation, you’ll need to wait for its pre-order form that goes live every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday.

Do you know what’s the difference between a doughnut and a bombolini? The experts at Doughnut Shack churn out delicious creations of both regular doughnuts and bombolini, which is an Italian variant that typically comes without a hole in the middle. Still, they both are equally tasty, and you’ll have a hard time choosing from its diverse menu of bombolini made in flavours of creme brûlée and pistachio or doughnuts glazed with raspberry chocolate and cinnamon sugar. A box of six goes for $16.90.

You already know that this bakery is famous for its cupcakes, but equally enjoyable are its brioche doughnuts that are made in limited quantities. These rare treats are only available on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, will come in a box of three ($13.50) featuring mainstay flavours of dark chocolate hazelnut, a Nutella-filled pocket crowned with roasted hazelnuts; and the vanilla bean malt loaded with custard and topped with a vanilla bean cookie. It's in the daily special flavour where things get exciting. Depending on when you place your order, you might find yourself biting into a coconut gula Melaka creation that’s dripping with pandan custard; a floral raspberry rose doughnut dusted with rose sugar and comes with a raspberry rose custard middle; or cinnamon brown sugar stuffed with brown sugar custard.

More than just its flame-kissed meats and smokey plates, Burnt Ends also has a separate online store to house its fancy baked creations. Sourdough loaves ($12) and sanger buns ($12) are available for purchase, but it’s the sweet doughnuts that you should really be after. Try the plain brioche doughnuts that go for $18 for six, or grab orders of the fluffy treat that can come in flavours of melon meringe ($30 for six), Nutella ($24 for six), and vanilla cream ($24 for six).

The inspiration behind this unassuming eatery is simple: two friends decided to turn their sweet love for baking into reality. Simple Café is set up by Sheryl Tan and Maisie Chew, two avid bakers who first met at Le Cordon Bleu, Tokyo. Here, the same pared-down approach is reflected in both the interior and the menu. An unfussy selection include Mont Blanc ($9) and sugar-coated brioche donuts ($4) in flavours of vanilla and apple black tea.

Takeaway-only

After finding success for its home-based business, Puffs and Peaks has now opened an offline café in Tampines, selling a mix of novel bakes and traditional treats. But the main highlight lies in the donuts ($3.80) each. Flavours switch up weekly, and can come with fillings of hojicha, passionfruit curd, strawberry jam, and more. But whatever you choose, be sure to make up your mind fast – pre-orders go live every Monday at 7pm, and slots are known to be snagged up within minutes.
