Bake magazine conducted a nationwide search of America’s Best Bakery and, once the votes were tallied, Atlanta’s own Sublime Doughnuts takes the…er..cake.
Voting started at the beginning of March, and six finalists rose to the top of the crowd, including Kamal Grant’s midtown doughnut shop. The winner was then chosen by Bake’s editorial staff, and Sublime will be featured in the May issue of the industry magazine.
If you have lived in Atlanta for long, or if you spent any amount of time perusing the Atlanta food blogs during the fall of 2009, the deliciousness that is Sublime Doughnuts is probably old news for you. But, if you are new to town, or have been sheltered from the wonderful, pastry-like donuts that Grant churns out of his shop on 10th Street, make sure to check it out. And if you want some shamelessly self-promoting food porn, feel free to drool over the fuzzy cell phone pics from my own blog post/catalogue of his unconventional and delicious treats.
I never understood why the cupcake thing took off like it did, especially after I’d tasted a well-made doughnut. That is totally a trend I could get behind.
Check out Kamal’s video submission that helped earn him the honor below. Congrats Kamal!
