If you follow my food page, you saw that last fall I did a mini tour, searching my home state Connecticut to find the best apple cider doughnuts. Check out the places I have visited, the doughnuts I have tried, and read about my favorites!
336 Long Bottom Road
Southington, CT 06489
Rogers Orchards was one of my first stops on my apple cider doughnut tour and also happened to be one of my favorites! They had two different varieties that I tried- apple cider and apple fritter. Both were great, but the apple cider doughnuts were amazing!
Blue Jay Orchards
125 Plumtrees Road
Bethel, CT 06801
Next stop on the tour was Blue Jay Orchards. These apple cider doughnuts were such a classic! Light, airy and fluffy!
83 N Turnpike Road
Wallingford, CT 06492
Neils Donuts is a must-stop spot for doughnuts in Connecticut, so of course I had to make a pit stop along the way to my next orchard. Unfortunately, they did not have an apple cider doughnut, but I picked up a few of their Apple Filled (so good) and raised cinnamon sugar (pictured below) to try!
West Egg Cafe
20 Sherman Hill Road
Woodbury, CT 06798
West Egg Cafe had amazing apple cider doughnuts which were so yummy and fresh! The doughnuts were adorable and everyone at the cafe was super friendly- I highly recommend stopping by, even if it is not for these doughnuts. (I really LOVED their selection of unique Benedicts- the Low Country was so tasty!)
451 Sport Hill Road
Easton, CT 06612
Silverman’s Farm has been a place I visited often during my childhood, so taking a bite of their apple cider doughnut brought be back to being a little kid again visiting their petting zoo! Their doughnut is the classic apple cider doughnut, but I LOVED their cider (I remember visiting the farm back when the cider was pressed right at the orchard). You can read more about the cider at Silverman’s Farm this fall when I complete my Apple Cider of Connecticut Tour.
100 Westport Ave
Norwalk, CT 06851
I can never complain about anything from Stews- it is always a W. These doughnuts were a little heavier than any of the others that I tried, but so delicious. Check out that sugar coating!!
Beardsley’s Cider Mill and Orchard
278 Leavenworth Road
Shelton, CT 06484
The apple cider doughnuts from Beardsley’s Cider Mill were much different than any other of the ones I tried on my tour. They tasted almost as if they had a green apple flavor!
271 S River Road
Tolland, CT 06084
Tip: Wright’s Orchard is cash only!
I was not expecting to find doughnuts at Wright’s Orchard and stumbled upon it by accident when visiting the area and looking for a place to pick apples. The doughnuts came in a bag with several, and were crunchy on the outside and soft inside with just the “wright” amount of cinnamon sugar!
384 Belleview Ave
Southington, CT 06489
Lewis Farm had a unique way to serve their apple cider doughnuts- in an apple cider donut sundae! Now say that 5 times fast!
Plasko’s Farm Creamery and Cafe
670 Daniels Farm Road
Trumbull, CT 06611
I have been to Plasko’s countless times for their ice cream, but was surprised when Craig Behun from @cticecreamtour messaged me to let me know that Plasko’s had apple cider doughnuts too! They were small in size, but mighty in taste and definitely were in my top picks of favorites that I had tried. These babies were super light and fluffy and sooo full of cinnamon-sugar! Plasko’s even had apple cider slushes to help wash it down!
BF Clyde’s Cider Mill
129 N Stonington Road
Mystic, CT 06355
You might already know that Clyde’s Cider Mill is the oldest steam-powered cider mill in the United States, but did you know they have apple cider doughnuts too? I cannot wait to visit Clyde’s again this fall for my Connecticut Apple Cider Tour! Make sure to follow my food page @trishxdish and let me know your favorite local spots for apple cider!
