Ed Levine first put together a doughnut honor roll in 2007; but since then, we've found and loved fried dough from all across this country of ours, from mango-filled malasadas to Sichuan peppercorn-laced doughnuts to burn-your-fingers fresh mini doughnuts. Our list clearly needed an update!
So we present you with the 2011 Serious Eats Doughnut Honor Roll: almost two dozen doughnuts we love from all across the country.
