On my way to a home I have listed in Bloomfield Twp. Michigan very near the Franklin Cider Mill, I decided to stop for a visit. It was the perfect day for cider and doughnuts. For as long as I have been in the area, I had never stopped at this historic site that was originally built in 1837 as a mill to grind grain. Definitely a quaint setting with the flowing brook as you cross over the bridge - but it is the doughnuts that had me coming back just a couple of days later. I took this video, packed up my tri-pod and then bought cider and doughnuts to go. I was hardly in the car when I greedily ate two. They were amazing -- fresh out of the fryer and still warm! In fact they were so good that I stopped back on Saturday for a few more. I did get delicious cider as well, but it was the doughnuts that I returned for!!
The weekend was packed - I was glad I came first during the week so that I could appreciate all of what the cider mill has to offer. On Saturday, I couldn't find a parking place - so you can imagine the crowd - everyone standing around with their cider, cups and paper bag of doughnuts - many utilizing the hood of their cars for a table. You will not be able to leave without eating a few doughnuts first. There were so many people with doughnut in hand and mouths full testifying to the validity of my first experience (any why I came back and waitied for a parking place). Videos capture more of the experience than pictures - but there is no way to capture the smell of hot doughnuts and the taste of that first hot one - you will have to go and check it out.
