Giant fan of doughnuts? Then it's likely that every week is National Doughnut Week for you! Did you know that there's an official celebration? We bet you didn't have a clue. And you know what? It's happening as we speak! National Doughnut Week is its 25th year at present and it's raising funds for The Children’s Trust, which supports children that are suffering from brain injuries. Money for the trust is collected through participating cafes and bakers; you can locate the nearest ones to you here. By now it's likely that you're thinking, what’s the nicest doughnut that I can eat at the nearest available opportunity? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Atmo tried out a variety of doughnuts from a few of the greatest bakeries there are. Here are the nicest ones around!:

1. Crosstown bakery

Crosstown is specialising in the sort of gourmet doughnuts that you’ll struggle to locate in any other location. Not only are they unique, but they're completely delicious. Flavours include chocolate truffle, banana dulce de leche, creme brulee and coffee custard.

2. St John

These doughnuts are the only Michelin-starred ones on the list. Can tell? Coated in sugar and oozing with a variety of fruit fillings, such as peach and apricot, rhubarb –  they're definitely everything you would expect from such a  famed restaurant.

3. Bread Ahead

Having got into the gourmet doughnut game pretty early, Gourmet Doughnuts have been selling them at the London’s Borough Market for the past few years. You can notice their type in the way their fillings arrive already oozing from the pastry, with flavours including orange, cardamom custard, vanilla custard, and blueberry.

4. Krispy Kreme

If you're a discerning doughnut lover, then Krispy Kreme might be more of a guilty pleasure, though it's a pleasure nevertheless. Having recently launched a limited-edition Nutella doughnut named the Nutty Chocolatta, if you’re one of the many crazy fans of the chocolate-hazelnut spread, then it's likely that you’ll want to get it down straight away!
