Sometimes all I feel like doing is stuffing my face with a magnificent custard doughnut. Ok, hang on let me rephrase that, every day I feel like stuffing my face with a magnificent custard doughnut or two. The problem with feeling like this all the time is that not many places around here sell pastries that you will literally jump through fiery hoops for, well that is until now!
It’s with great pleasure that I would like to introduce you to Shakil who owns and runs a wonderful bakery called Tonka Bean Bakery where he makes and sells artisan baked goods that are made using classic French methods, really good ingredients and a whole lot of love.
I first tasted Tonka Beans creations at Father Coffee in Rosebank and have since been completely hooked. So the other day I took a drive out to them in Fourways to meet the genius behind probably the best custard doughnut I have ever tasted! Hands down. I’m talking the type of doughnut you’d prefer to be alone with so you can eat it in private with no one around to judge your table manners or ask you for a bite!!
