Oh Doughnuts was born when Amanda brought a delicious homemade treat to work at her then full-time job. After some enthusiastic encouragement, she started supplying Parlour Coffee shop, as well as a few others, with a few dozen doughnuts a day, which flew off the shelves.

Kinden is the owner of Oh Doughnuts — a six-month-old operation that supplies gourmet-style doughnuts to an increasing number of Winnipeg restaurants and coffee shops. Kinden’s treats, made with locally produced organic flour and eggs and, when called for, fair-trade organic chocolate, are as imaginative as they are mouth-watering; among the dozens she’s come up with to date are crème brûlée, Bailey’s glaze with Guinness brownie chunks and — we’ll take a dozen, please — root beer float.”

Oh Doughnuts is giving Winnipeggers a new taste for this traditional treat.
The demand for Oh Doughnuts is already spiking: Kinden says that the day after the Parlour birthday doughnuts, someone asked if she could make a dozen of them for a staff meeting.
We tried both kinds available - grapefruit curd and lavender glaze. They were tasty and exactly what I wanted. Now I’m stuck waiting for them to open a storefront. Here’s to hoping it’s soon. Until then I am going to dream of that lavender glaze... or just keep frequenting Parlour Coffee for doughnuts and coffee.

Independent doughnut shops are few and far between in Winnipeg. In fact, I can’t name one solely dedicated to this deep-fried delight. Amanda Kinden is hoping to change all that. Her artisan doughnuts (@ohdoughnuts on Twitter) have been delighting patrons of Main Street’s Parlour Coffee since the beginning of this month, selling out almost every day and for good reason. These are delicious, homestyle, melt-in-your-mouth treats like Winnipeg has never tasted.
Oh Doughnuts is all her: the baking, the delivery, the twitter, the recipe research, the dishes, and the blood sweat and tears (not in the kitchen, I promise). “I sometimes say ‘we’ because I’m still talking like there’s more than one of me.”, Kinden says. On her way out, she says, “I have to go back to work now actually….[I laugh, and she responds] it’s worth it, it’s allllll worth it.”
