Here’s a peek behind the scenes of the secret recipe, yeast-raised hot doughnuts of the world famous Krispy Kremes.

Hot Doughnuts Now

Krispy Kreme – since 1937!

The story starts at 4 am when five vans leave 197 Burlington Road in New Malden headed to 64 locations in London and the South East. It takes 90 minutes to get the doughnut into the box, and this store makes 270 dozen doughnuts an hour.

We got to see the glazed doughnuts being made. After mixing the eggs, milk, soya, wheat and barley flour the mix goes through an extruder to get that hole in the middle shape,  gets placed on a vertical conveyor belt through the heated proofing cabinet for 33 minutes before heading into the hot vegetable oil – a blend of palm and sunflower oils and then through icing sprayer.
