Gourdough’s Donuts in Austin, TX – where perfect donuts are loaded with toppings that will leave you craving more!

When I first found out that I was going to be going to Austin, there was one place that immediately went to the top of my list of must visit places – Gourdough’s Donuts.

I remembered seeing so many bloggers talk about this food trailer in Austin when a conference was held there a year ago. Being a donut lover, I remember being so jealous of those loaded, over the top donuts. I wondered if I’d ever have the chance to try one. And when my trip was planned for Austin, I knew I wouldn’t miss it!!

I know most people have a “thing”. That one food item that they can never turn away. For some people, it’s cookies. Or cupcakes. Or bread. Me? I’m all about the donuts. I would gladly do a cross-country tour, looking for the best donuts in the country.

My husband flew into Austin on Thursday, but I had a few hours in the morning before his flight got in, so I decided to walk around and explore. And get some donuts. My husband is also a donut lover, but he usually likes things a little more simple. He’s not big on frosting or things that are really over the top. So I decided that since Gourdough’s Donuts was within walking distance from where I was, I’d just head over and treat myself to breakfast.

When I got there, I couldn’t decide what I wanted, so naturally I ordered 2 donuts. Even though I was there just as they opened, there were already a few people there, and an older gentleman struck up a conversation with me as I was taking pictures of the donuts. He said that whenever they have friends in from out of town, they always have to stop for a donut, and that the Flying Pig (donut with maple syrup icing and bacon) was probably the most photographed donut in Austin. At least he didn’t think I was crazy for taking pictures! 🙂

I ordered the Flying Pig, as well as the Cherry Bombs (donut holes with a cherry glaze, cherries, cinnamon, sugar, and a cake mix topping.) Honestly – I couldn’t choose my favorite. All I knew was that these donuts were amazing. They were huge, so I definitely didn’t make it through both of them myself, but I enjoyed every single bite.

The next day, I couldn’t stop thinking about those donuts, so I ended up making my husband take me back. 🙂 And I’m glad we did go back!! Carrian told me that I had to try the Miss Shortcake (donut with cream cheese icing and fresh strawberries), and I knew she wouldn’t steer me wrong. My husband got Sara’s Joy (coconut flavored filling with fresh coconut and fudge icing), and I’m so glad he did because I really wanted to try that one. It was so hot outside, so we sat in our air-conditioned car in silence as we savored every. single. bite. It’s probably a good thing that I don’t live in Austin, because I’d probably want to get a donut on a weekly basis at Gourdough’s Donuts! This is definitely a place you need to put on your must-visit list in Austin, Texas!

    Nice! I would do a cross-country frosting tour, so I should probably add Gourdough’s to my list of stops. I am so glad you went twice and that you got to try four different kinds. Complete approval.
