History of National Doughnut Day

The History of National Doughnut Day is not precisely known, but what is understood is that their iconic look started appearing in the United States in the mid-1800s. Rumour has it a gentleman by the name of Hanson Gregory invented them, out of a distaste for the undercooked centers and greasiness of the existing shapes and options.  The holiday celebrates the doughnut, a good, torus-shaped piece of dough that is deep-fried and sweetened. The way was said to be obtained by punching a hole in the center with a tin pepper box. There are several varieties of doughnuts outside of that, including twist doughnuts, fritters, and the hugely different and famous filled doughnut. Filled doughnuts come in a wide variety, including the famous Devil Dog, a chocolate-covered delight filled with delicious cream. Glazed doughnuts filled with all sorts of delicious fruit, with raspberry being a runaway favorite throughout the world, and lemon filling being equally famous.
