Carpe Donut

August 1st, 2010

So on a recent trip to the Doctor’s office I was flipping through a Virginia Living Magazine when an article about Donuts caught my eye. {imagine that!} Apparently I have been oblivious to the fact that there is a donut cart roaming the streets of Charlottesville called Carpe Donut.   And this is not just any donut cart.. it’s an ORGANIC Donut cart! {Yes- you heard me correctly.}

How awesome is a Donut that is made with organic flour, organic eggs, local apple cider, organic spices, pure sugar, and non-aluminated baking powder.  It is even cooked in 100% Soybean Oil!  I’d go so far to say that this sounds like a HEALTHY donut!  And their environmentally friendly too!  Well not the donuts, but the vendor. They go and convert the used frying oils into bio-fuel.  Could I love this place anymore??

For the record I haven’t actually tried the donuts yet, but I’m about to!  The article noted that Whole Foods carried Carpe Donut’s in their frozen food section and all you had to do was pop ‘em in the oven.  So off to Whole Foods I went last night while Mr. vB was out with the boys.  And this morning I’m going to surprise him with a yummy breakfast with fresh donuts..

Here we go!

Directions were super simple.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and then place donuts directly onto the baking rack for 8-10 minutes.

Next stop.. my belly!

{about 10 minutes later…}

WOW!!!  Those donuts were AMAZING!  Crispy and light with great flavoring.  If I hadn’t have cooked them personally I would have thought someone drove to C’ville to pick up hot donuts for me. YUMMO!!!

Next time you are in Whole Foods these are a MUST pickup!  And while you’re out there, will you grab a few packages for me??

    Hooray! I’m so glad you like them! We love the Carpe Donut cart…I’ve even considered having it come to my wedding (which is far off on the horizon, but a girl can dream, right?)!

    This article made me so happy! So far I’ve been to two Whole Foods in Northern Virginia, but haven’t been successful to find the Carpe Doughnut. I’m gong to keep trying though thats for sure!

    Holly- I wonder if it is just a local thing?? If you can’t find ‘em in your next couple of trips let me know. Maybe I could mail you some?? haha
