Of all the varieties of donuts throughout the world, one kind repeatedly stands out as the all-time favorite, the glazed donut. The glazed donut is so popular that it even has its day of recognition, (January 12 in case you’re curious).
This yeast donut comes in the traditional round shape and is also offered in a twisty variety. It was a recipe for the glazed donut that gave Shipley Do-Nuts its start and will always be near and dear to us.
Lawrence Shipley, Sr. sold his first glazed donut back in 1936. At first, the donuts were solely sold wholesale, but they became so popular by the 1940’s that the Shipley’s decided to sell the hot glazed donuts in the retail market.
The couple’s young son learned the family donut secrets while still small enough to sit on his mother’s knee. He used his knowledge and his dad’s recipe to grow the business to include 190 locations in six states, adding an online shop, and expanding the menu to include 59 other delicious choices for your pleasure.
At Shipley Do-Nut shops, we use the original recipe of our founder from 1936. This means you not only get the taste that has brought so many smiles to people throughout the years, but you also get a donut that is free of those complex ingredients you find everywhere these days.
Our ingredients are simple:
- Wheat Flour
- Potato Flour
- Soya Flour
- Powdered Sugar
- Vegetable Gelatin
- Vegetable Shortening
We make our donuts with real ingredients, not pre-packaged mixes.
The Perfect Pairing
The perfect donut needs the perfect beverage to accompany it. For a delicious pairing of flavors and aromas, try pairing our glazed donuts with an espresso.
The simple sugary coating of the glazed donut will complement the heavy flavor of the espresso, leaving you happy and caffeinated.
Glazed Donut Tips and Tricks
Need to store some delicious glazed donuts for a quick breakfast or tasty, no-prep dessert? Store traditional, non-filled glazed donuts at room temperature in a cool, dry place to keep the glaze from melting and the donut tasting fresh.
