Freedman's Bakery in New Jersey? All over the central Jersey shore area. 
The world's best doughnut: cinnamon crunch [baked, glazed, topped with 
crumb and powdered sugar]. Any chance you have that?
What about their corn rye bread?

Hi Susan,

I hadn't heard of it until I received your email. Now I've head of it a lot because it's mentioned a lot in items on the web. However, I cannot find any recipes at all for any of its products. When Freedman's closed, they sold their recipes for corn rye bread and Kneip kaiser rolls to Harvest House Bakery in Howell, but people complain that Harvest House versions are not the same.  Bakery recipes are problematic - bakeries and their employees usually don't give them out. Sometimes someone creates a copycat, but there are none in this case.

I'll post this for reader input.

May i please have the recipe for cinnamon crunch donuts?
Thank you!

Hello Sue,

I looked for this recipe just a few months ago. See: 5-14-2020

Sorry, there has been no change since then. It's just not available.
