19 popular donuts in Singapore with oozy fillings & fluffy insides that sell out quickly

by Evan Mua and Christabel Tan

From the classic plain sugared donuts to Italian bomboloni, everybody loves a fluffy ring of fried dough. But where can you find the best donuts in Singapore? Aside from Krispy Kreme of course.

If you want donuts that are “so fluffy I’m gonna die” then you’ve come to the right place. Here are 19 popular donut shops that we can guarantee are the bomb(oloni).

Burnt Ends Bakery

If you’re hunting for the best donuts in Singapore, maybe consider getting these babies from 1-Michelin-starred Burnt Ends Bakery. Burnt Ends’ donuts (from S$24 for half dozen) are as much of a hot commodity as their seats — heading down early to get your hands on a particular flavour is a must.

The dough is supple, dreamily fluffy, and tears apart with ease to expose a glut of filling. Go for the passionfruit curd—the punchy zest is the perfect foil to the rich dough.

Pre-order from their website.

Sourbombe Artisanal Bakery

This is a passion project of MasterChef Singapore runner-up Genevieve Lee. Sourbombe’s sourdough bomboloni are perhaps the most popular donuts in Singapore, selling out at light speed each time.

Pre-order the Sourbombe Signature Box of 9 (S$44) to avoid the queues— the donuts come with a gentle crackling crust, complemented by a twangy, airy interior. What truly sets them apart is their crazy range of fillings like Basque Burnt Cheesecake and Lavender Lime Mascarpone that you can’t find elsewhere.

A second outlet is slated to open at Jewel Changi Airport in August 2022 — we can’t wait.

Korio

Korio is a takeaway kiosk that exploded in popularity on Instagram shortly after opening. The NYC-style Brioche Donuts (from S$4.50) they make are rich and impossibly fluffy. You’d be hard-pressed to find similar donuts in Singapore.

Korio’s range of flavours is also pretty extensive and is more American-centric. Must-tries include their Milk Chocolate | Hazelnuts and Original Glazed, which carries a unique touch of nutmeg.

Initially starting out as a home-based business run by a mother and daughter duo, Puffs and Peaks is a small neighbourhood bakery serving up some of the most sought-after donuts in Singapore.

Flavours for their Filled Donuts (S$3.80+) rotate weekly, but previous popular fillings include Taro, Matcha, and even a savoury Sour Cream & Chives.

Mr Holmes Bakehouse

How could we exclude world-famous patisserie Mr Holmes Bakehouse from a list of the best donuts in Singapore? Although most tend to head straight for the signature cruffins, the bomboloni-style Donuts (from S$4) are way too appetising to overlook.

Not to mention that they come in a ton of unique seasonal fillings like Strawberry Lemonade, Black Sesame, and Rose Lychee.

Plain sugar donuts are one of everyone’s favourite childhood snacks. YY Kafei Dian’s version of the timeless rendition is one of the best plain sugar donuts you can find in Singapore.

Not to mention these nostalgic treats are available at just S$1.20 a pop. Light, chewy, and softer than any bakery version with hardly any trace of grease — you don’t want to miss this.

City Donut

City Donut looks like they belong in the same class as some of the artisanal donuts previously mentioned. You’d be surprised to know that their Donuts (from S$2.80) are actually quite affordable and lean towards bakery-styled donuts.

If you want unique flavours, no other donuts in Singapore have the same local flair. Their unapologetically local variants like Pulut Hitam, Ondeh-Ondeh and Milo Dinosaur have gotten them plenty of fans.

Aside from their Chinatown and Thomson outlets, they’ve also got a takeaway kiosk in Takashimaya.

Haritts Donuts & Coffee

If there’s one donut that I’d describe as not just fluffy but also bouncy, it’s definitely those you can find at Haritts. The supple Japanese-style donuts literally ricocheted when I bit down on them.

You can find simpler flavours such as Earl Grey and the popular Cream Cheese, but the Pistachio is the real star of the show. Its emerald-hued filling hits with a luxurious aroma that will leave you craving for more.

Kobashi

If Japanese-inspired flavours like Koicha Matcha and Neri Goma sound like music to your ears, the sourdough donuts by home-based bakery Kobashi might really appeal to you.

Run by two graduates from the Culinary Insitute of America, Kobashi specialises in handcrafted small-batch bakes. It might require some effort (and a bit of luck) to snag a Sourdo’nuts Box of 6 (S$28), but you won’t regret it. Do also keep a lookout for the occasional pop-up.

Simple Café

Previously located in NEWest, Simple Café is a small café which oozes fairy-tale Taiwanese café vibes. While they have a range of bakes like tarts and swiss rolls, their stuffed donuts are their signature item.

Made to have a nice chewy texture, each of these donuts is filled with a generous amount of filling. Flavours lean more towards the Asian palate, with special local-leaning flavours like Milk Tea and Orh Nee.

Bakes by NY

The Muslim-owned Bakes by NY started out as a humble home-based bakery, eventually branching out into a successful franchise selling delicious Italian-style bombolonis.

The chewy, generously filled Stuffed Donuts (S$4/pc or S$20 for a box of 5) come in classic and locally-inspired flavours like Cream Cheese, Ondeh Ondeh, and Nutella — the stuff of dreams for those with major sweet tooths.

Nassim Hill Bakery

Maybe better known for being a nice casual date spot, Nassim Hill Bakery has gotten a fair bit of attention for their filled Brioche Donuts (S$14 for a box of 4).

But we totally get the hype. Look at these chubby dough balls, piped to the brim with luscious house-made Kaya or oozy, ultra-decadent Chocolate. To say they’re rich is an understatement.

Doughnut Shack

If you’re looking for the best donuts in Singapore, it only makes sense that a place like Doughnut Shack would be on your radar. Unlike most other places, they serve both filled bomboloni and donuts of the holed variety.

Doughnut Shack’s main draw is their insane range of flavours which extends beyond ten varieties. Those with a sweet tooth would find it hard to resist their Creme Brulee and Pistachio Ganache, which incorporates velvety white chocolate.

Doughter Bakery

Helmed by a mother-daughter duo, Doughter Bakery is another online bakery that emerged during the Circuit Breaker period. They’ve gained a sizable following for their small-batch bakes including the likes of mochi muffins, cookies, and even baked mochi donuts.

For the best of both worlds (we like it chewy and crunchy) order the Everything You Love Set (S$22), a box of Mochi Muffins and Chocolate Mochi Donuts that also makes for a cute gift.

Order from their website.

IO Italian Osteria

Given that “bomboloni” is an Italian word, it’s only fair to include a few donuts from authentic Italian places.

If you didn’t already know, there’s a bakery section tucked away in a corner of IO Italian Osteria, where you can find some pretty solid Bombolone (S$4/S$5). Go for the Pistachio or Custard if you want a good time.

You can make a reservation to dine in here.

The Fat Kid Bakery

With a name like Fat Kid Bakery, you know you will be fed glamorously no matter what you order. Seriously, you have to wonder if the name refers to those engorged spheres of fluffy sourdough goodness.

Soft, light, and fluffy with a slight tang, these thicc bois come in some seriously quirky flavours. Who wouldn’t want a taste of Sea Salt Maple, Blueberry Cheesecake, or the savoury Tuna Nori Crunch?

Red Sparrow

Probably the most unique item on this list, these Ca Phe Banh Ran or Coffee-Glazed Vietnamese Donuts are a nice contrast to the more Western-influenced donuts in Singapore.

They sport the same airy bite and crispy glazed bite as your favourite Krispy Kreme originals, but with an added caffeine touch and a scoop of chocolate ice cream with crushed toasted peanuts.

Dochi Dochi

Here’s another alternative to the typical yeasted donut.

Home-based business turned physical bakery Dochi Dochi doles out adorable bite-sized mochi donuts that are 100% handmade. These chewy and bouncy (or rather, “QQ”) donuts come in unique flavours like Parmesan Garlic Butter, Maple Osmanthus, and Kani Mayo with Tobiko.

The bakery is also in the midst of applying for halal certification, so stay tuned!

Madd Pizza

Visiting a pizza place just for donuts? You’d be surprised. Roma-style street food joint Madd Pizza, in particular, has received praise for both its pizzas and bomboloni.

Their filled Bomboloni only sets you back S$3, which is pretty affordable for a restaurant setting. It’s airy and fluffy, with a silky vanilla-infused custard filling that’ll rock your world.
