About Dandee Donuts

One of Dandenong Market's most popular and iconic stalls, Dandee Donuts draws people from all over Melbourne and Australia with a strong and loyal following. Dandee Donuts has been managed by the Bell family for over 40 years.

The secret to Dandee Donuts' huge popularity is that they are freshly made, cooked on site and on demand, unlike many popular donut brands which use frozen ingredients and cooked off site. Dandee Donuts are also dairy free, egg free and have no additives (other than in the jam) with yeast donut that are twice raised, giving them their fluffy lightness. All of Dandee Donuts ingredients are Australian grown, with the original recipe developed in the 1950s.
