While decadent cakes and indulgent ice cream paired with waffles are typically our go-to sweet treats, you might have come across bomboloni in Singapore recently.

The beloved Italian stuffed donuts are round, sugar-coated pillows that are chock-full of velvety pastry cream. Without a doubt, these fluffy, brioche-like buns are every dessert lover’s dream, for they come in a spectrum of flavours ranging from sweet to savoury. 

Sink your teeth into these morsels, and we guarantee that one bite won’t be your last. If you’d like to add bomboloni to your list of pastries to savour, these are 12 cult-favourite bakeries where you can find bomboloni in Singapore. 

Remember to bookmark this article for hotspots that churn out loaded bomboloni in Singapore

1. Doughnut Shack

151 Kitchener Road
Open: Tuesday to Sunday (11am to 7pm)

Why visit? Nestled along Kitchener Road is Doughnut Shack, a takeaway outlet dedicated to the chonky bomboloni and other types of donuts. Some may also be familiar with the brand, as it claims to be the first to create the chilli crab bomboloni in Singapore

Unfortunately, the local-inspired flavour is no longer on the menu. There’s still a plethora of other interesting flavours to choose from, which includes modern takes such as New York cheesecake (S$4.20) and pistachio ganache (S$4.20). 

Doughnut Shack rolls out different flavours each month, so stay tuned to its social media page for what’s available at the store. If you prefer a daintier, bite-sized version instead of the regular bombolone, there are also minis on the menu. 

Price range: $

Crowd favourites: We can’t say no to chocolate, so Donutella (S$4.20) is our top pick. It’s a treat that’s bursting with luscious Nutella cream. Tear it apart, and it oozes chocolate fudge that’s absolutely irresistible.

2. The Fat Kid Bakery

39 Amoy Street
Open: Monday to Thursday (9am to 5pm), Friday (9am to 6.30pm), Saturday (10.30am to 4pm)

Why visit? Most of us have heard of The Fat Kid Bakery, a local homegrown brand that made waves on social media for its stuffed bomboloni. Previously situated at a secluded spot at Flora Vista in Ang Mo Kio, the popular sourdough eatery has since relocated to Amoy Street.

Helmed by head baker and founder Ariel Tang, the bomboloni at The Fat Kid Bakery are made with a homegrown sourdough starter. This results in an airily soft body, which is filled to the brim with tasty filling. 

Grab a freshly made donut to go, or have the buns in a box of four, eight, 10 or 12. We’d recommend getting a dozen if you’re sharing with peers.

Price range: $

Crowd favourites: Some sweeter fillings include vanilla creme brulee (S$4.50), summer berries (S$5.30) and seasalt maple (S$5.50). There’s also a slew of savoury options, such as torched mentaiko (S$6.50) and roasted garlic mascarpone (S$6.50).

3. Burnt Ends Bakery

7 Dempsey Road, 01-01
Open: Thursday to Sunday (8am to 4pm)

Why visit? Under Burnt Ends is Burnt Ends Bakery, the bread and pastry arm of Michelin-starred chef David Pynt’s Australian-style barbeque restaurant. The bakery houses some of the best bomboloni in Singapore, and they’re incredibly hard to snag. They’re constantly sold out, which tells you how popular and tasty they are. 

Have the donuts in an assortment of five, six, a Baker’s Dozen (comprising 12 buns) or in a package of 24. There’s an eye watering lineup of flavours, which currently spans the likes of smoked Japanese yuzu, passionfruit curd and lemon meringue

Price range: $$$

Crowd favourites:  Get the box of five (S$25) to try a couple of its bestselling flavours. We hear the Milo dinosaur bombolone is a wonderful choice, for it’s a fluffy brioche-like bun that’s laden with Milo cream and adorned with a crunchy biscuit. For a lighter finish, the pandan bombolone is a fragrant lil’ thing with pandan cream, coconut glaze and desiccated coconut bits.

4. Donas8

Great World, B1-K122, 1 Kim Seng Promenade
Open: Monday to Sunday (10am to 10pm)

Market Blue, B1-122/123/124, 163 Tanglin Road

Why visit? Sweet treats are presented in the form of mochi donuts, twisted donuts and bomboloni at Donas8. Located at Great World and Market Blue in Tanglin Mall, this speciality donut chain is known for its doughy bakes that are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. 

While its chewy mochi donuts may be the main stars, the bomboloni comes close in popularity. There’s a lineup of six classic flavours (S$5.50) each), such as strawberry, chocolate and matcha. If you’re not a fan of sweet cream and prefer something simpler, there’s also a plain option. 

Price range: $

Crowd favourites: The custard bombolone is a signature flavour at Donas8. The body is covered in sugar, and smooth custard cream lies within. You should also get the lemon custard bombolone, which is a zestier option with the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness.

5. Sourbombe Artisanal Bakery

Why visit? This bakery at Penang Road is the brainchild of Genevieve Lee, the runner-up of MasterChef Singapore in 2018. It started off as an online store before it moved to its current brick-and-mortar location. 

The brand specialises in the eponymous “sourbombe”, which is a melding of sourdough and the Italian donut. Crafted with a sourdough starter, the artisanal bombes undergo a fermentation process of more than 18 hours. They’re then fried to crisp, golden perfection. 

Sourbombe Artisanal Bakery also prides itself on gourmet pairings, pushing the boundaries of traditional flavours and textures. There are nine moreish flavours available on the menu, excluding the plain option. 

Price range: $

Crowd favourites: For sticklers of tradition, you’ll love the Milo (from S$4.80) and White Rabbit (from S$4.80) sourbombes. They’re a nod to Singapore’s favourite local treats, recreated in pillowy temptations that ooze pure decadence.

6. Puffs and Peaks Bakery

Tampines Central Community Complex, 03-03, 866A Tampines Street 83
Open: Thursday to Sunday (10.30am to 5pm)

Monthly menus are released on its social media page, while the bomboloni flavours rotate weekly. The buns sell out quickly, especially on the weekends. You’ll have to head down early to Puff and Peaks Bakery if you’d like to get your hands on its crowd-favourite bomboloni. 

Price range: $

Crowd favourites: The brand constantly impresses with its imaginative bomboloni flavour combinations. Think pulut hitam (S$4.20), sour cream and chives (S$4.20) and mango pomelo (S$4) — the latter being a refreshing, citrusy take on the traditional Chinese dessert.
