If eating a donut drowned in butter maple syrup and a heaping of bacon on top is wrong, then I never wanna be right. Found Gourdough's on Yelp on my recent trip to Austin. Even though the bf and I just ate lunch and were running late getting out of town, I insisted we stopped by Gourdough's. I had my eye on the Flying Pig (bacon with maple syrup icing) and the Funky Monkey (grilled bananas and cream cheese icing with brown sugar) while my bf had his eye on the ODB (cream filled donut holes with icing rolled in coconut), but unfortunately my stomach only had room for one, so I chose the Funky Monkey. Bacon was calling my name!
My donut, the Flying Pig, was huge, warm, crunchy on the outside yet soft inside, topped with at least 5 pieces of super crunchy bacon, and everything was drowned in a maple syrup that tastes like it has tons of butter in it. I loved everything about my donut, except I think it has too much syrup. My bf's choice, the ODB, was not as good as mine and not as described on the web site. Instead of the donut holes rolled in coconut, they were drowned in the icing and the coconut was sprinkled on top. The donut holes themselves were good, but the entire thing was entirely too sweet.
Everyone must try a Gourdough's donut before they die!!!
