edible Notables

by Katherine Rossmoore


Come autumn, we all want a comforting, warm treat.

What could be better than a hot apple cider donut hole right off the Flour Girls Baking Company’s Sweet Truck? These apple cider donuts are quintessential fall in New England: a rustic country apple-picking adventure and a crisp autumn afternoon, in one sweet treat.

Vermont native and local transplant Jill Houck was raised deep in apple country on an island in Lake Champlain. She grew up baking along side her parents and has managed to bring the taste of a Vermont autumn right into her wildly wonderful Flour Girls Baking Company bakery and café, as well as into the super-cool and beautifully decorated Sweet Truck. Jill and her manager Corrie McCue, who is also the chief donut-fryer, make fresh batches of batter daily, scoop it into “holes,” deep-fry them, and roll them in sugar and cinnamon. These donut delights are only available through the Sweet Truck, which is parked at the original Plymouth Farmers’ Market every Thursday afternoon through October 30th. The truck is also available for specialty events and private functions.

The donut holes are a super deal at 6 for $4!

Betcha can’t eat just one…
