This is my BEST OF THE SOUTHSIDE series! I am here to help you “Love Where You Live” and every year I come across things I need to share about what makes the Southside great! These are all the small businesses, services, food, shops and activities that made a big impression on me and I want to honor them by sharing with you!
We have plenty of donut places in Greenwood and the Southside of Indianapolis…most are franchises that everyone knows. I know you already know your favorites from those places. The BEST donut is from a more local place.
First, I have to tell you that I am not really a donut person. I do really love donuts, but I don’t think about them or seek them out. I can usually resist. When I do indulge, I usually go for a glazed donut.
So last summer, I was doing some volunteer work for my daughter’s theater group and we were working in a hot storage room and I needed food! Someone had brought in donuts that I had not even looked at. But I was starving, so I went over to the table and saw a donut I had never seen before. So I decided to give it a try. Oh. My. Goodness…it was amazing. A huge upgrade on my glazed donuts! So, here it is:
Greenwood & The Southside’s Best Donut:
Rise & Roll’s Cinnamon Caramel Donut
We’ve all had sugar cinnamon donuts…my mom made them a few times and I love to just eat a sugar dipped donut hole. But what was different about this one was that it was first glazed (it is a yeast donut), and then before the glaze hardened they sprinkled it with cinnamon powdered sugar. Wow. And, I didn’t know at the time because I don’t think I tasted caramel, but apparently the glaze is actually a caramel glaze.
IT IS AMAZING!
I found out that the donut comes from Rise & Roll, an Amish bakery from Northern Indiana that has a few franchise stores throughout the state. In Greenwood, we have one located at County Line Road and State Road 135. That is currently the only location on the Southside, so go get yours!
