These QQ donuts taste like your childhood in a bite

There are some snacks from your childhood that you just miss. A lot of them are still around—and have gotten modern makeovers—but time (and recipe adjustments) have had their way with them. Take QQ donuts, for example. These childhood staples are still being sold in bakeries and canteens today, but none of them really taste like how we remember. 

I wasn’t really on a quest to find QQ donuts that taste exactly like they did when I was a kid, but here we are anyway.

Bake Fresh is an online bakery that sells Hong Kong-style pastries. Though its claim to fame may be its Cantonese-style baos, my favorite item on the menu is the QQ donuts. QQ (which translates to “chewy” in Fookien) donuts are chewy, Chinese style fried doughnuts that are distinctly chewy and covered with sugar.

These donuts are fried ’till golden brown and slightly crisp on the outside. Then they’re lightly sprinkled with sugar before being sent to hungry customers. These donuts are light, fluffy and wonderfully chewy. A half-dozen box costs P200.

If you want a cheesy version of these donuts, Bake Fresh also sells three-cheese QQ donuts (P300 for half a dozen) filled with mozzarella and cheddar and dusted off with a sugar parmesan coating. They’re a little on the heavier side with the gooey cheese filling, but these donuts still make a great afternoon snack.

If you’re looking for other childhood snacks, Bake Fresh also sells half-dozen boxes of ham and cheese rolls (P300), sausage rolls (P330), coconut bread (P280) and pork floss buns (P360).

These snacks are only available on Friday, Saturday and Tuesday, so make sure you order ahead of time. Happy snacking!
