Product Information

Our doughnuts are lovingly made using our top-secret flour blend, yeast and vegetable shortening. The glazes vary, depending on the flavour but include either full cream milk or coconut milk for vegan doughnuts!

For a good time, we recommend eating your doughnuts on the day of purchase or on the day you receive your delivery.

Our doughnuts contain no trans fat.

We have a dedicated team of doughnut creators who cut, shape and prove our dough, which then they fry (in vegetable oil), glaze and decorate by hand for your enjoyment!

We do! Our vegan doughnuts are void of animal products. Our vegan doughnuts are produced in the same kitchen as our regular doughnuts, and although cross-contamination is near-impossible, we think it’s best that we let you know.

Our doughnuts are happiest when stored in the cupboard.

Ordering instore? Filled and glazed doughnuts are £4.50 (excluding mega doughnuts). 4-Packs are £16 and a 6-Pack is £24.
Ordering a 6-Pack Delivery online? Both our vegan and regular boxes cost £26.00

Yes! Our collection 'Baked by Doughnut Time' is a new range of doughnuts made using only gluten free ingredients. All 'Baked' doughnuts are created to a gluten free recipe and made in our dedicated gluten free kitchen.

All measures are taken to avoid cross contamination, and we are in the process of getting our kitchen certified by Coeliac UK. Due to this, we are advising that our products are currently not suitable for coeliac allergy sufferers.

We do not recommend that anyone with a nut allergy consumes our doughnuts.
