There are many culinary pleasures to be experienced in this life. As you travel up and down the NJ Turnpike, I encourage you to take Exit 3 (Swedesboro, I think) and then drive over to The Pitman Bakery in Pitman, NJ. There you will find the most delicious, the heartiest, the most soul satisfying doughnuts on the planet. Look, I??m a doughnut dude so I can attest to the grandeur of these cakey delights. From Donut King and Gladstone Donut House in LA to Krispy Kreme in Atlanta (you know the one I??m talking about) ?? all very fine doughnut establishments ?? I can now say, without hesitation, that the Pitman Bakery makes a doughnut that will leave you drooling (while eating it!). I now know how they will kill off Homer Simpson: he??ll be dared to eat a baker??s dozen of Pitman Bakery??s peanut butter frosting covered cake doughnuts.
Now, take that peanut butter confection and pair it with Belgian ale. Yes! Do it! Perfectly paired with an Abbey-styled dubbel, you will find yourself truly in a state of nirvana. Indulging in this treat will leave you forever marked with a sensory memory. Perhaps you will be delivering a critical sales presentation in Vancouver when BANG! The smell drifts into your olfactory nerves. You??ll freeze, suspended by the warm, unctuous smell. You??ll run from the conference room and head to the airport and beg, beg to get on the next flight to Philly (as long as it arrives 45 minutes prior to the doughnuts being put on display). You??ll hop into a cab or, time permitting, grab a Rapid Rover shuttle and say to the driver, ??Take me to Pitman Bakery.? He or she will know the urgency. The driver will see the manic glow in your face and know they have less than 30 minutes to get you to Heaven.
The journey will be but a blip in time. You and the driver will not lose focus. A mission has never been so well designed. You arrive. You push open the door and that smell, that glorious, inviting smell envelops you. The counter person sees the dark circles under your eyes and knows. She excuses herself from the person she??s serving because she knows time is truly ??of the essence.? She knows what you want but out of courtesy, perhaps training, she says, ??May I help you?? You smirk because you??ve both danced this dance before. ??Yes, good morning, I??d like one peanut butter doughnut.? She says, ??A batch just came out. Are you sure you want just one?? Temptress! Get thee behind me, Satan! ??I??m sure, just one.? Wilde??s dictum, ??Everything in moderation, except moderation,? creeps into your mind for a moment but you fight it off, knowing that One is enough; One brings a satisfaction unparalleled in the human experience.
It is now in your hands. Warm, the peanut butter frosting oozing down one tiny section of this imperfect circle. You casually take your free index finger and scoop it before it falls off the edge onto the floor. ??Would you like a coffee with your doughnut, sir?? You swing wildly back to the doughnut wench and glare incredulously at her until she saunters away ashamed of not recognizing you, not recognizing how insidious her suggestion was to you, an experienced doughnut connoisseur. You want to yell back at her, ??Hey! You and I both know this doughnut deserves a Belgian double ale. Right?! Don??t trifle with me, doughnut wench!?
You draw a deep breath and return to the doughnut. It lies warmly in your hand. A dense, cakey treat that is never too heavy, never too light. It is perfection. It??s unfair to characterize the peanut butter topping as ??frosting.? It??s so much more. It??s layered unevenly, imperfectly on the doughnut. It??s thick, subtle smell wafts upward inviting you to enjoy its flavors, its depth. You take the first bite and all is revealed. The universe opens and the secrets, once untold, now come into focus. You are lost, but found. Healed and reconciled. Balanced.
The last bite. You are sated, happy.

Yes, I remember Mrs. Pointer's cakes fondly! We also had them for birthday cakes....her coconut cake and orange cakes were so delicious!
And, of course, I love the Pitman Bakery and the cream doughnuts :).

Does anyone remember Mrs. Pointer, who baked from her home in the 1960's in Pitman? Awesome chocolate cake. Mom used to buy her cakes all the time for our birthdays.

P.S. Mom used to buy Petit Fours from the Pitman Bakery for my sleepover parties at friends home. We all loved them!

Absolutely THE BEST bakery in South Jersey....their cream donuts are to die for. It is like the old fashioned donuts we used to get from a German bakery in Northeast Philadelphia. Taste them and you can tell the difference. There's no comparison to them and the donut shops put up on every corner. Get the real thing....go to the Pitman Bakery.

Pitman Bakery has the best cream donuts on the planet! Their are donuts rank pretty high too. Glaze donuts can't be beat either. Their donuts are a bit pricey but worth the cost. Again, their cream donuts are the GREATEST!

The best Chocolate Bismarks are my favorite. They are light and fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside. I have their phone number on my cell phone.

I grew up with the Oaklyn Bakery and when they closed there was Dansers in Lindenwold then they closed. The only good old fashioned bakery left is the Pitman Bakery. Everything is so fresh, yummy and smell absolutely heavenly. The Pitman Bakery is not only an all time favorite but also a throw back to any girl or boy's childhood. May the Pitman Bakery keep going for many more generations to come.

The best bakery for everything you want from a bakery. Been eating their donuts for 26 years, cheesecake is wonderful and the sticky buns are the greatest too.

Pitman Bakery is the best! I was surprised at my wedding shower with a Pitman Bakery cake. It was the most beautiful cake I've ever seen! I was getting married in Puerto Rico, so my friends asked them to create a special design to celebrate my destination wedding. They transformed an ordinary cake into a masterpiece. They designed the cake to replicate the beauty of the island. They included the ocean with a tiny boat, palm trees growing out of sand and even white chocolate star fish and sea shells! The cake was, by far, the best I have EVER tasted. The chocolate cake was so moist and delicious. It just melts in your mouth. I also had the chance to sample some of their tasty donuts and pastries. Please, if you are ever in Pitman or you need to purchase a cake, stop by this bakery. Believe me; you??ll never go anywhere else after you??ve tasted some of their delicious treats!

Just the smell of the bakery when you walk in makes your mouth water. They have a lot of cakes and other delicious baked goods. My favorite are the cookies with the sprinkles on them, because I used to get one for free from the ladies behind the counter when I was little. The cinnamon buns are delicious too!

I grew up in Pitman and the Pitman bakery was important to us. Mrs. Rosiak used to always give our daughter free cookies when our daughter was a baby. We still go back when we visit Jersey and it's still the best bakery in the world. You have to try the sticky Cinnamon buns with nuts. They are awesome.

Very good place if you want a good dessert. Not many places make desserts that taste like the way this bakery makes them! You can taste the quality. Very nice.

PROS: Yummy!
CONS:

This is the old fashioned kind of bakery where they actually bake the goodies right there, not frozen type stuff you get in the bakery at the grocery stores these days. Awesome doughnuts! They have the best desserts you could imagine. This is one of our favorite treats. I highly recommend trying some of their treats.
