Born in an old, renovated motel in the small Hatteras town of Buxton, NC, are devilishly divine Apple Uglies. Likened to an apple fritter, these gigantic pieces of fried dough stand apart from its regular donut counterparts. Admittedly the result of a “kitchen accident” and the know-how of a visiting baker, they mix scraps of dough with apples and then fry them to perfection to achieve this culinary monster. Orange Blossom Bakery and Café also makes baked uglies - a slightly less-indulgent version of the apple uglies – as well as a slew of other stellar pastries that are equally as worthy of a take-out bag. They’re so good, you’ll want to take some uglies home. They freeze well too!
