Anniel Prats, owner of small business Gourmet Cravings, makes her whole strawberry donuts from home, without any preservatives.
Everything is handmade – from the soft, powdered donuts that are slightly toasted on the outside, to the thick strawberry jelly that’s not too sweet nor sour.
The glazed donut sandwiches a heaping amount of fresh, sweet, and whole strawberries and a generous amount of jelly. It might seem like a lot going on, but the sweetness of it all is actually well-balanced. The classic strawberry-filled donuts cost P95 a piece, with a minimum of 6 pieces per order.
Gourmet Cravings also offers another variant – the strawberry cream cheese bombers – which includes a light, vanilla cream cheese filling that works well with the strawberries. These cost P130 a piece.
Gourmet Cravings is located in Almanza Uno, Las Piñas City. For orders, you can message them on Facebook.
