I’m sad to report that we will have a doughnut shortage for the next couple of days in Lincoln Falls. The owner of Half-Baked, Mr. Sloane, said an unnamed worker, who has now been dismissed, added too much baking powder to the doughnut batter, causing the doughnuts to rise and then spread all over the ovens.
Mr. Sloane claims he’s never seen anything like it. Dough even seeped through the doors of the ovens.
Half-Baked is known for its baked doughnuts, a healthy alternative to fried doughnuts. I personally love the blueberry glazed doughnut and I’m not sure how I’ll get through Sunday morning without one.
The ovens will be professionally cleaned and Mr. Sloane says he should have doughnuts ready on Monday morning. I’ll be the first one in line to get my doughnut.
In the meantime, if you are in serious need of a doughnut, you’ll have to go over the town line to get a standard fried one.
See you on Monday at Half-Baked!
