It’s unfair to put Gourdough’s in the doughnut category because, really, the delicious concoctions they dish out are so much more. We went to this little food trailer on South Lamar for the first time with Kyle and Jana a few weeks back and let’s just say it was mind-blowing. The doughnuts are so sweet and sinfully delicious, it’s like doughnuts meet funnel cake. They’re served hot and fresh and I think we devoured ours in less than a minute. The real beauty of Gourdough’s is the creativity though. Their doughnut combos are all so unique and tempting. I’ll highlight a few:

Dirty Berry- Fudge icing with grilled strawberries

Mother Clucker-Fried chicken strip with honey butter

Son of a Peach- Peach filling, cinnamon, sugar and cake mix topping

Baby Rattler- Fudge icing and fudge oreos with a gummy rattlesnake

Slow Burn- Habanero pepper jelly with cream cheese topping


Did I say mind blowing? They’re delicious and you can get any of them with a scoop of ice cream on top (which we did)! Holy Guacamole Batman! I will be going there for my birthday this week and probably bi-weekly when I’m pregnant. I’ve predetermined that these doughnuts will be my pregnancy craving.

Here is a pic of Jana and I at Gourdough’s. (Yay phones with flashes!) Our doughnut was eaten to quickly to be photographed.




  1. OMG…I must try this when come to town! I have been craving a mind-blowing doughnut ever since I saw a food network special on a place in NYC.

  2. Mmm, I’m salivating thinking about the raspberry fudge one. P.S. Kyle and Jana rock!

  3. Wow. You guys have to take Jess and I there when we come visit for Geoff’s wedding. The mother clucker sounds amazing. I am so excited I could cry.

    Austin food is soooo cool.

  4. oh MAN it’s MY pregnancy craving…and I haven’t even tried it. I have GOT to stop craving Austin foods while preggo. It just doesn’t work out.

    • It would work out if you were to say β€” live in Austin.

  5. Yeah, so tell us when that pregnancy craving kicks in for real. You’ve already beat my prediction on timeline, I think. How long have you been married? (coming up on 2, or 3?) At least I was nicer than Daniel Jordan who predicted a honeymoon baby. πŸ™‚

    • We’ll let you know! Rebecca, Suzanne, Schmale and Jess are the only ones still in the running. πŸ™‚
