Our Story

We are bakers who make fresh doughnuts. What you see are handmade every morning at our home bakery in Penryn. All of our jams, custards, fillings, glazes & toppings are homemade, and our dough is rolled by hand. We utilise the best ingredients we can find.

Meet The Team

Matt & Darcy enjoy the challenge of creating unique tastes and developing recipes, providing compelling new flavours for their customers on a weekly basis. As a couple Matt & Darcy have big plans for there future, hoping to one day extend their services and knowledge to open shops, restaurants, and cafes with their ideas and experiences. 

Matthew Tout

Head Baker/Chef
Matt first developed a passion for food when he was just four years old, regularly traveling Europe trying local delicacies and learning some necessary skills while baking at home.

When he was at school, Matt developed a passion for Food Tech and would love to help his classmates with projects. What began as a hobby soon evolved into much more, with Matt KPing at Falmouth Beach Hotel straight out of school then extending his skills as a chef in the Navy on Submarines.

After he left the Navy, Matt traveled the world working as a chef and expanding his relationship with food.

At 24, Matt met Darcy who shared his passion for food. As a couple, they ate at some of the worlds most respected restaurants and sampled endless amounts of street foods and artisan products. At that stage, Matt had never made a doughnut in his life.

Then after a year in Melbourne Australia surrounded by doughnuts, Matt decided to experiment with the pockets of joy. One thing led to another, and soon he had developed a recipe and decided it was time to share his doughnuts and experiences with the world.

Officially opening the bakery in January 2018. The couple hopes they can create enough profit to give them the opportunity to upscale the business, employ full-time staff above the national living wage, and open a shop in the near-future.

Now with Doughnut Addiction housed at 51 Little Oaks. Matt has created a selection of flavours to ensure there is something to suit every customer, he is constantly working on new doughnuts using seasonal fruits and hopes to introduce a new luxury range in the near-future using only the finest ingredients known to man.
