I’m sure that many of us have a serious love for donuts thanks to the neighbourhood bakeries that we’d visit when we were young. These days, donuts are more than just the sugar or chocolate rice-covered ones, thanks to a growing number of local bakers and specialty stores that are coming up with inventive flavours. From locally inspired flavours such as Durian and Kaya, to unique takes such as stuffed bombolinis with sourdough, here are some of the best donuts you can find in Singapore!

Think Crème Brûlée, Milo Oreo Crunch, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, Peanut Butter Jam, S’mores and many more!
