Healthy Donuts? Isn’t that an Oxymoron?

Posted on December 3, 2010



          Beach Cities Baked Donuts isn’t trying to change the world, they’re just trying to show you that something delicious, doesn’t necessarily have to be unhealthy.
                       BCBD has taken on one of America’s favorite desserts, the donut, and completely revamped it. A very BOLD move indeed, but one that has paid off.
Affogarto – before and after an Expresso bath

             Meet BCBD’s Affogarto – A layer of donut covered in a massive scoop of ice cream, followed by another layer of donut topped with fresh whipped cream.

Then your pour a warm cup of Espresso Affogato, Chocolate Milk Affogato, or Caramel Affogato over the entire concoction to complete this devilish delight!

         Affogarto which translates as “drowned”  in Italian is usually called “affogato al cafe” or “drowned in coffee’. Most Italian cafe’s serve this dessert, sans the donut of course.
BCBD- A rainbow of flavor!

 You’ll find that BCBD’s donuts are smaller, lighter and less sweet than their American counterparts, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. BCBD are a wonderful light treat that is well complimented by the smooth coffee and nostalgic warm milk they offer.

There are four main staple flavors that BCBD offers and several others that they alter every day. Which means you’ll be suprised every time you walk in!
