Roadtrip! Chocolate Cake Donuts

Seeing a trend? My vacations are full of all kinds of healthy food…Dunfordโ€™s Chocolate Cake donuts at Utah-local ‘Danโ€™s’ grocery stores are the BEST. There really is no other donut quite like this. They put all other donuts to shame, especially the ones with that waxy chocolate icing.


  1. 1

    Stop it! Seriously. I have had to explain to everyone I come across why I do not like Dunkin’ Donuts or even Krispy Kremes. When you grow up eating those tasty donuts from Dan’s…and a few other bakeries…there’s no comparison.

    I am having so much on my vicarious trip to UT. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Are you trying to kill me? ๐Ÿ˜‰ So now I’m craving orange rolls, chocolate donuts, and that mention of pumpkin chocolate chip bread is still in the back of my mind. Oh jeez, I think I might need to throw out my bathroom scale.

    my husband is addicted to their maple bars…..

    Hey! I grew up shopping at Dan’s Foods in Cottonwood Heights. I spent a small fortune at their ice-cream counter.

    Good memories!

    P.S. My trips to San Diego and Salt Lake always revolve around where I want to eat while I’m there. The visiting family part is alright, but it’s the FOOD I get most excited about!

    Also, where is Dan’s? I want to try their donuts.

    there are a few dan’s here and there… probably have a website or in the yellow pages. there’s one on 3900 south and 2000 east (or around 20th)… and highland drive and 7200 south. yum yum

    They sell the same tasty donuts at 7-11 and also by the dozen at Costco, if you dare buy them in bulk…I know this because that was one of my top pregnancy cravings ๐Ÿ™‚

    I LOVE LOVE the Dunford chocolate cake doughnuts! But are they only a Utah thing? I recently moved to South Carolina and they are nowhere to be found ๐Ÿ™

    yup, denise…I think it is only a utah thing. my parents were talking about which dan’s grocery store had the original dunford donuts baked in it. sure wish some donut maker somewhere else would catch on and make them!!!

    I live only a few blocks from the Dunkin’ Donut store in West Jordan. I stumbled onto your website searching for a calorie count for the donuts. My husband bought them for team treats and their was a dozen left over – lucky me? What’s for dinner – what a great concept. Thanks for sharing!

    The Donuts are made by Dunford Bakeries in SLC. You can visit the bakery and purchase them fresh! We always make it part of our trip.

    I am looking for a recipe for Dunford Bakers Butterfly Cheese Danish. Can anyone help me? Please email me.

    Oh goodness. Just made the mistake of looking up the calories. Let’s just say this better be your meal, not a snack! Yikes! Way more than I was expecting, but they sure are good!
