Frequently Asked Questions
Can we sit in to enjoy our doughnuts?
Due to current circumstances, our West End shop is open for reduced hours and for takeaway only. Our City Centre shop is temporarily closed. Please keep an eye on our social media for updates.
Are your doughnuts gluten-free/nut-free?
We take allergies very seriously, so please ask a member of staff for more information if you suffer from any allergies.
All of our doughnuts contain high amounts of gluten. Due to the large amount of gluten-rich flour we use in our small kitchen, gluten-free doughnuts would just not be possible without heavy cross-contamination, making it very unsafe for those with a gluten allergy/intolerance.
Not all of our doughnuts contain nuts, however, due to products being made on shared equipment and work surfaces, we would advise those with nut allergies not to consume any of our products.
How long do your doughnuts stay fresh?
Our doughnuts are freshly-made in-house daily, using mostly natural ingredients and no preservatives and are therefore best eaten on the day of purchase.
See below to find out the best way to keep your doughnuts fresh throughout the day - if they last that long!
Do you deliver?
We are now available locally on Deliveroo and Ubereats.
We are unable to deliver large Event orders at this time.
Are your doughnuts Vegetarian?
The majority of the time all of our doughnuts are Vegetarian, we do however bring out special favours which may not be. Best to ask in store for details!
Our homemade marshmallows are not Vegetarian.
Do you have nutritional information for your doughnuts?
As all of our doughnuts are handmade the nutritional information varies.
The process of obtaining accurate nutritional information would be expensive and time consuming for our small business, as our menu does change.
We take pride in having developed all our own recipes and are particular about choosing high quality ingredients in the production of our treats.
As a small scale bakery serving ready-to-eat products, we are not required by the Food Standards Agency to undertake the expense of developing nutrition labels for our products.
All members of the Tantrum Team are happy to answer basic questions about ingredients in our scratch-made products, so that folks with food allergies and dietary restrictions are able to select products to fit their particular needs.
Can I order a customised doughnut?
Yes! Please see our
Custom Piping page for further information.
We need to have your order in and confirmed by midday the day before
at the latest.
Custom piping is available for collection only.
Are your shops dog-friendly?
Yes, we love meeting your dogs!
How much do your doughnuts cost?
All of our doughnuts are individually-priced, based on the great, fresh ingredients they contain.
What is the best way to keep my doughnuts?
The best way to keep your doughnuts fresh for consumption later in the day is to keep them in the box they were purchased in (away from direct sunlight, of course) or kept in an air-tight container at room temperature.
Please note: putting our doughnuts in the fridge will result in a stale product.
What type of doughnuts do you sell?
We make all of our doughnuts fresh every day in our Glasgow bakery. We create all of our glazes and fillings in house, using natural and seasonal ingredients as much as possible.
We make 3 types of doughnuts.
1) Yeast-raised brioche:
After spending over a year experimenting with our signature brioche dough, we have developed brioche doughnuts which are delightfully light and fluffy, yet structured enough to be ideal for adding our homemade glazes, custards, compotes and toppings. Using only the best ingredients we can source; such as French patisserie unsalted butter, and Corrie Mains free-range eggs from Ayrshire; it takes a long time each day to produce a batch of doughnuts from start to finish, meaning early starts most days for Tantrum’s Pastry Chefs!
2) Old fashioned doughnuts:
Our "Old fashioned" or "cake" doughnuts use different ingredients; like sour cream and buttermilk; to produce a crumbly and cakey texture with a cracked surface. As no yeast is added to this style of doughnuts they don't rise high - like our brioche doughnuts - but with natural ingredients such as nutmeg and buttermilk, they pack loads of flavour!
3) Vegan doughnuts:
With our Vegan doughnuts we have tried to emulate our beloved brioche dough, as at Tantrum we want everyone to enjoy the same excellent experience. To achieve this our kitchen team have been working hard for a long time to develop their recipe. We use high-quality dairy-free alternatives, such as chia seeds and coconut oil. As with our other doughnuts, our Vegan flavours are made fresh by hand every day. We only make small batches of these, so get in early to get your hands on them!
*Our Vegan doughnuts are prepared and handled in a bakery that handles dairy and egg, transported and displayed in our shops alongside our other doughnuts. We cannot guarantee there will be no cross-contamination. Purchase is at customer discretion.
