BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash. – In the morning, when the moon set on Bainbridge Island before these honey-glazed, salted chocolate beauties went into the containers, there was already a line at Pleasant Beach Donuts.

Joe Raymond, General Manager of Pleasant Beach Village, said: “Yes, it is a semi-regular occurrence.

Okay, forgive us for doing it again donut story.

But there’s something about these donuts that’s really different.

Pleasant Beach chef Joe Benish explains: “We really love the idea of ​​sourdough because you don’t really see that with a raised or fermented donut.

As it turns out, developing a sourdough donut is difficult — in a good way.

“Trial and error, trial and error, trial and error,” says Benish.

“Eat lots of donuts, we would say,” adds Chris Habosystemck, sous chef and proud member of the donut development team.

This business was born because of COVID.

Chefs have turned to donuts as restaurants here have had to downsize because of the pandemic.

Why donuts? Because they’re the perfect snack for – we’ll say it – those unprecedented times.

“It’s really comforting, it’s one of those foods that you can’t go wrong with when you’re feeling down and need to pick up a treat,” says Habhesia.

Since sourdough takes a long time to rise, the dough is made with natural yeast starter dough the day before, then tested, then raised a second time before the donuts are fried fresh in. the morning they were sold. And taste?

“This donut is unique in that it is mouth-watering, chewy, and finally the sourdough flavor really comes out,” says Habhesia.

Lines do not lie. These not-so-sweet sourdough donuts are a popular dish on the Island.

The sourdough isn’t the only thing that sets these donuts apart.

This bakery is just a block from this saltwater beach – a perfect place to picnic with a well-stocked box of snacks.

And don’t worry if you don’t want to jump the ferry to find them.

Every Wednesday through Sunday, you can find Seattle’s Pleasant Beach Donuts at a pop-up store along Sand Point Road – from 8:30 a.m. until they’re gone.

And there’s one last thing that sets these donuts apart, according to the people who make them. It’s related to anything that’s good for the gut health of sourdough. We’ll let you take this or let it:

“Personally we feel they digest a little better, you can eat more and not feel guilty,” laughs Benish.

However many people eat at once, these donuts are taking the sourdough trend to the next level.
