Today was my day to try Sublime Doughnuts on 10th Street. I bought an assortment of donuts so that I could try several. I sampled one of the chocolate donuts and a glazed donut. When it came to the jelly-filled donut, I couldn't resist and ate the whole thing. These donuts are truly sublime in that they are subtle. They are very tender with vibrant flavors but they aren't overly sweet. I can testify from personal experience that making tender donuts is a challenge---tender donuts come from soft dough that is hard to work with.
