Behold the beginning of our annual 100 Favorite Dishes countdown! Every day until the publication of our fantabulous Best Of Issue, we'll list our favorite meals this year in descending order. Enjoy, pass it on, and tune in daily!

The Donuttery has revamped the classic jelly doughnut in a way so simple it should become standard at all doughnut shops: Slap some peanut butter on that baby!

Not that any other place could come close to the fluffy, creamy, crunchy joy at Huntington Beach's best doughnut stop. Atop a strawberry jelly doughnut that actually tastes of real strawberry, the shop slathers a sugared peanut butter spread and a generous sprinkle of chopped peanuts. Peanut butter is the condiment you never knew this doughnut needed. Its saltiness contrasts the sweet, fruity jelly while melding with the fluffy dough and holding the crunchy nuts in place.

As dense as this doughnut is, the peanut butter rescues it from overwhelming your tastebuds with sweetness--something you've already received plenty of from the cheery cashier.
