In honor of National Doughnut/Donut Day (the first Friday in June), we prepared these Long fresh cream filled and chocolate dipped ring doughnuts.

A doughnut or donut is a type of food made from leavened fried dough. It is popular in many countries and is prepared in various forms as a sweet snack that can be homemade or purchased in bakeries, supermarkets, food stalls, and franchised specialty vendors. 

National Donut Day or National Doughnut Day, celebrated in the United States and in some other countries, is on the first Friday of June of each year, succeeding the doughnut event created by The Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938 to honor those of their members who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. The holiday celebrates the doughnut. Many American doughnut stores offer free doughnuts on the occasion

Why is it called a doughnut?

Washington Irving’s reference to “doughnuts” in 1809 in his History of New York is more commonly cited as the first written recording of the term. Irving described “balls of sweetened dough, fried in hog’s fat, and called doughnuts, or olykoeks.” These “nuts” of fried dough might now be called doughnut holes.

Some stories and fun facts around Why its called doughnut?

  • In early colonial times, US Dutch immigrants discovered fried cake. So the story goes, a cow kicked a pot of boiling oil over some pastry mix, thus inventing the golden brown delight.
  • Doughnuts are deep-fried cakes with a long European history and roots in still earlier Middle Eastern cuisine. They were introduced to America by the Dutch in New Netherlands to America as oliekoecken (oil cakes or fried cakes).
  • What were doughnuts originally called? They were originally called “oily cakes.”
  • The early Americans took the fact that the treats were fried in oil quite literally, naming them olykoeks, translating to “oily cakes.” The word ‘donut’ came soon after when a woman is said to have put nuts in the dough before frying it.

  1. Well I didn’t know the history of doughnuts before. Fried in hog fat? That doesn’t sound as appetizing. I guess that’s like when people see a slaughter house and stop eating meat? :0 Although I’m not sure I will every not love a good ol’ cake donut! Thank you for linking up. Have a great weekend! pinned

    • Hi Cindy, I know, hog’s fat does sound weird, but although its the same, Lard does sound better, but fortunately nowadays its done in regular oil. Hope you will still enjoy your doughnuts.

  2. Oh, Esme, those look so delicious. Doughnuts have always been a weakness for me, so much so that I avoid driving by doughnut shops! haha But, I would love to make these one day!
