Inside the kitchen of mother-daughter doughnut shop Doornuts 'exploding' with popularity

Doughnuts come in all different shapes and sizes, loaded with delicious fillings, glazed, iced or even sprinkled. Although not essential to life, it has been suggested that they are very necessary. 

In the words of Dale Cooper from Twin Peaks: "Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it, don't wait for it, just let it happen". 

Today, maybe it's a doughnut?  

We visited the Doornuts kitchen to catch a glimpse behind the scenes of where their beloved doughy delicacies come to life.

Danielle Butler, Chief piper at Pie Piper and Doornuts, started the business with her teenage daughter Suzanne where they also make American-style pies as well as the delicious doughnuts. 

"At the time Suzanne was seventeen and I wanted her to have an idea of what it would take to start a business." 

Then the orders started coming in. 

"Before we knew it six pies turned into twelve pies, twelve pies into twenty four pies, doughnuts just started exploding. Everything just got bigger and bigger until we finally got our own retail store in 2017." 

And ever since they haven’t stopped growing, moving from strength-to-strength each year.

"We have a lot of loyal customers." 

You can find these amazing colorful and creative desserts on K Road or at their new premises at the The Eatery in Mission Bay. 

You really have to try these for yourself, if you haven already.
