Doughnuts? I told you I don't like ethnic foods!

For those of you who may not understand the title, it's a quote from a Simpsons episode where Homer tried to serve a doughnuts to Mr Burns and that was the response that he got.

According to Devra First of the Dishing Blog at the Boston Globe quoting the Food Network magazine, Craigie on Main's doughnut is the best breakfast in Massachusetts. Craigie on Main is my favourite restaurant in the Boston area, and their doughnut is to die for. Just a very tasty plain yeast doughnut, fried with a dusting of sugar, but it's the milk jam that comes with it is what puts it into a new category. Milk jam is just a code for caramel - warm, thick, buttery, caramel to slather over the hot doughnut. The doughnut alone is worth the trip to Craigie for their brunch, though everything else we've eaten here is top-notch.

Incidentally, I've read that doughnuts are the worst food for people with high cholesterol to eat! Apparently sugar + fried = no nutritional value at all.

Now that sounds like culinary nirvana. I love the term "milk jam."
