When I think of legendary Michigan donuts, I definitely think of Marge's Donut Den in Wyoming, which has been serving up yummy desserts since 1975. Sweetwater Donut Mill in Kalamazoo also comes to mind! And you can't forget about all the apple orchards, like Robinette's Apple Haus and Winery, making delicious apple cider donuts each fall.

Here's Love Food's praise for the bakery:

This family-run Ferndale favorite might be named for its apple fritter donuts (which some customers reckon are the best around), but it’s famed for its blueberry version, which comes laced with maple syrup and tastes simply amazing. People love the fact that the flavors are baked right into the donuts, rather than just featuring in the glaze and toppings.

Here's that blueberry fritter they're talking about.

Simply amazing bakery in Ferndale! The fritters are fabulous and come in a variety of delicious flavors (apple, blueberry, cherry, maple). The donut selection is astounding and the coffee is fresh and hot. Will be coming back again and again!

Amelia says,

I've been in three times over the last six months and I never make it past the delectable fritters! I stopped in looking for a cherry fritter for my mom & not only did they have cherry, but cherry almond, blueberry, maple, bacon... Delicious & delectable!
