Columbus Underground is celebrating Valentine’s Day a week early with Treat Week! We’re profiling all types of desserts, baked goods and other local sweets.

If you haven’t been able to try a donut from pop-up donut shop Destination Donuts yet, get thee to the North Market and try one (although check her schedule first). Can we just say YUM. It may seem silly to go with a simple vanilla donut when there are more very creative flavors on the menu, but most folks love a glazed the best!* and I wanted to try it.

The Dueling Vanilla ($3) is a giant concoction of chewy and thick yeasty dough made with both Madagascar and Tahitian vanillas. It’s about 4 inches across and 2 inches thick. The vanilla bean glaze is dripped on heavily and is steps above your basic sugar glaze. I was not disappointed. After trying one of these, you won’t want to go back to thin grocery store rings!

All of the donuts are made from scratch off-site by Heather Morris. When I stopped in last Saturday, it was a cold wintry day and having one of these donuts slightly chilled was a wonderful treat.

    I got a bite when Anne brought it home. Really dense and flavorful. You could certainly tell it was homemade, and that’s a good thing.

    Only minor quibble is that because they’re baked off site, they’re kept cold to bring to the market. Would love to have one fresh and still warm. Though I guess a microwave will do the trick. ;)
