Everybody loves a fluffy ring of fried dough, but do you know where to find the best donuts in Singapore? Besides Krispy Kreme of course.

Donuts are surprisingly complicated, with several popular styles, from classic plain sugar donuts, to Italian bomboloni, and American donuts.

If you want the best donuts in Singapore that are “so fluffy I’m gonna die” then you’ve come to the right place. I can guarantee that these are the bomb(oloni).

Burnt Ends Bakery

Price: S$24/half dozen, S$52/baker’s dozen

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 are as much of a hot commodity as their seats, so much so that it’s a 1 month wait.

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

Price: Varies, but current CNY Huat Box priced at S$48/box of 9

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.

The donuts came with a gentle crackling crust, complemented by a twangy, airy interior. What truly sets them apart is their crazy range of fillings like Burnt Cheesecake and Pineapple and Cardamom Cream that you can’t find elsewhere.

Korio

Price: S$20/box of 4, S$30/box of 6, individual donuts from S$4.50–S$5.

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

Korio’s range of flavours is pretty extensive too, and is more American-centric. Some you have to try include their Peanut Butter & Jelly and Original Glazed, which carries a unique touch of nutmeg.

Puffs and Peaks

Price: S$2.90–S$3.80/1pc

Unlike Sourbombe, Puffs and Peaks didn’t have the star power to draw in customers from day 1. However, Puffs and Peaks was such a roaring success that they have since opened a physical outlet.

Looking at the insane queues they drew, they are definitely one of the most sought-after donuts in Singapore. Their flavours are rotated weekly, but previous popular fillings include Taro and Matcha.

As the name suggests, they flake. If you’re looking for something with a flaky, crispy exterior and soft interior—FLAKE’s cronuts are your answer. Not to mention a ton of unique fillings like Maple Peanut Butter and Key Lime.

Haritts Donuts & Coffee

Price: S$23.80/assorted box of 6, S$39.50/assorted box of 12

If there’s one donut that I’d describe as not just fluffy but also bouncy, its Haritts. The supple donuts literally ricocheted when I bit down on them.

You can find simpler flavours such as Cinnamon Currants and Earl Grey, but their star is the Pistachio. The emerald-hued filling hits with a luxurious aroma that will leave you craving for more.

Price: S$14/box of 4

Maybe more known for being a nice casual date spot, Nassim Hill Bakery has gotten a bit of attention for their filled brioche bomboloni recently.

Can you blame the hype? Look at these chubby balls, piped to the brim. It’s hard not to want to dig into the decadent ooze of glossy Chocolate cream and luscious house-made Kaya. To say they’re rich is an understatement.

Doughnut Shack

Price: S$14/assorted box of 6, S$47/assorted box of 20

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

Doughnut Shack’s main draw is their insane range of flavours which extends beyond 10 varieties. Those with a sweet tooth would find it hard to resist their Creme Brulee and Pistachio Ganache, which incorporates a velvety white chocolate.

Plain Vanilla

Price: S$13.50/assorted box of 3

If there were things that people associate with Plain Vanilla, it’s their rustic décor and cupcakes. However, did you know they secretly made some mean donuts?

They are sold limited quantities only sold thrice a week, so it’s a bit of a hassle to get these donuts. But it’s all worth it when you see some of their beautifully-presented varieties like Raspberry Rose and Vanilla Bean Malt.

IO Italian Osteria

Price: S$12

If you haven’t realised, “bomboloni” is an Italian word. So, it’s only fair to include a few donuts from authentic Italian places.

It’s not on their regular menu, but the Bomboloni can sometimes be found on IO Italian Osteria’s specials menu. It’s a pretty solid one too, especially enjoyable when paired with a scoop of creamy Pistachio Gelato.

Price: S$20/box of 4, S$40/box of 8

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 goodness.

Red Sparrow

Price: S$13/5pcs

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. This would definitely satiate coffee lovers.

They sport the same airy bite and crispy glazed bite as your favourite Krispy Kreme originals, with an added caffeine touch. With a prestigious Vietnamese restaurant like Red Sparrow behind these, you can’t go wrong.

Madd Pizza

Price: S$3

A pizza place for donuts? You’d be surprised by the list of places churning out amazing dishes you wouldn’t expect from them. MAD in particular, had some people praising their bomboloni over pizzas.

A Bombolone here only sets you back S$3, which is pretty affordable for a restaurant setting. It’s supposedly airy and fluffy and it’s custard filling silky and elegantly kissed with vanilla.
