Electric Dounts

A few weeks ago Ben and I made our way to Portobello Market on a miserable rainy Saturday on the hunt for Electric Donuts. It's no secret that Ben loves donuts. Loves them, so it's surprising it took us so long to get to Notting Hill for Electric. The tiny shop is inside the Electric Cinema & only opens a few days a week. The flavours change regularly and on the day we went we tried Pistachio, Old Fashioned Buttermilk, Birthday Cake & Lemon Poppyseed. The best of the lot was by far the Old Fashioned Buttermilk and on our next visit we didn't bother with any other flavours. My personal favourite donut is still the Custard from St John's Bakery but the Old Fashioned was delicious and you can get two for the price of one custard donut which is a bonus!

Old Fashioned delicious-ness
Over the long weekend I plan to bite the head off a Lindt chocolate bunny, eat a Hot Cross Bun (even though you can get them all year round here) & freeze at The Kernel on Saturday after visiting Ropewalk on Maltby Street & Borough Market. Also: Drink coffee (always).

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
