Tantrum Doughnuts

These days, doughnuts aren’t just the sugary, pink rings that Homer Simpson loves to indulge in on a daily basis – they’re basically an art form.

Independent doughnut bakeries have been popping up left, right and centre in the UK in recent years and – since it’s National Doughnut Week – we wanted to showcase some of the best on the scene right now.

This week, give those stale supermarket doughnuts the swerve and instead treat yourself to one of these mouth-watering miracles.
