Tobies in Hinkely, Minnesota
Halfway between Minneapolis/St. Paul and Hayward, Wisconsin is Hinkley, Minnesota and Tobies Restaurant & Bakery. There was a crush of customers, so no time to talk with the doughnut-makers, but their work is clearly popular. The raised chocolate doughnut is a slightly sweet white bun with a heavy spread of medium-dark chocolate frosting; the cake doughnut is light and dry with a taste of cinnamon in the batter, topped with a wonderfully heavy pour of dense chocolate.
