Toronto bar wins Food Network donut showdown

You might not know that Bloorcourt bar the Steady has a sister bakery operation that specializes in donuts. But they do - and they make donuts so good that they just beat out two other top-notch donut companies in the Food Network's televised donut deathmatch.

Donut Showdown pits donut bakers from all over the continent against one another in a series of challenges for a $10,000 cash prize. In last night's episode, Steady bakers Baden Cunning and Vanessa Robak, along with bakers from Florida and Ohio, were tasked with creating a wasabi donut - the Steady's version came topped with sesame seeds and candied ginger.

Next up was a "masquerade"-themed challenge, which they met with a popping-candy donut, and another "masquerading" as a bagel (prompting guest judge Zane Caplansky to have a minor freakout). The duo eventually took home the, er, dough, and, hopefully, some more recipes to add to the Steady's roster, because I desperately want one of those Pop Rocks donuts. Check out all the action on the Food Network site.
