Found on a highway near our house several years ago.
Bavarian Cream donuts. There is no substitute.
Interesting we know both doughnuts and Bavarian Creme - but not together.
The world of marketing has no respect for genuine cultural roots. Can you find an English muffin in England?
I love the dern things!
Wimberley Donuts is great, and my current favorite.
I prefer the dumber spelling.
I don’t know what that says about me.
Two less letters? Is there a third spelling that I don't know about?!
3 less, I think I skipped a U
I had forgotten about Shipley Do(ugh)nuts! They had them in north Louisiana when I was growing up there. Might still be there; I don't know.
I always liked them.
"small, spongy cake made of dough and fried in lard," 1809, American English, from dough + nut (n.), probably on the notion of being a small round lump (the holes came later; they are first mentioned c. 1861). First recorded by Washington Irving, who described them as "balls of sweetened dough, fried in hog's fat, and called doughnuts, or olykoeks."
Earlier name for it was dough-boy (1680s). Bartlett (1848) meanwhile lists doughnuts and crullers among the types of olycokes, a word he derives from Dutch olikoek, literally "oil-cake," to indicate a cake fried in lard.
The ladies of Augusta, Maine, set in operation and carried out a novel idea, namely, the distribution of over fifty bushels of doughnuts to the Third volunteer regiment of that State. A procession of ladies, headed by music, passed between double lines of troops, who presented arms, and were afterwards drawn up in hollow square to receive from tender and gracious hands the welcome doughnation. [Frazar Kirkland, "Anecdotes of the Rebellion," 1866]
There used to be a place in the mall - the new mall - when I was a kid, called the Royal Donut Hole. I can't remember if any of it was any good, but I remember the name always seemed wrong, even if I couldn't figure out why.
It's "dough" + "nought" isn't it?
What?! No maple bar? Hard pass.
Besides, I'd take a bagel to any donut ... any and every time.
BTW, I finally tried a Krispy Creme "donut". People actually buy that crap? WTH, have we no taste buds anymore?
"Doughnut" makes more sense, but I have never seen it spelled that way. Leave it to marketing to change the spelling of a word.
It's a dough nut, as opposed to a dough bolt. Or dough screw. If you flattened one, it would be a dough washer.
For me, growing-up, this is a doughnut. Best eaten freshly fried and hot, with the raspberry jam also injected hot.
The Germans call them "Berliner Krapfen", or just "Berliner" ......Both Kennedy & Reagan declared themselves to be one.
The things with a hole in the middle and icing on them are American Donuts. Although I'm sure I must have eaten one once, I can't recall doing so.
Usually any shop that sells them has more enticing Petit Fours to choose from, like a Chocolate Eclair.
Is there any truth to the rumor that "Krispy Kreme Krullers" is a thinly-disguised front for the Klan?
That would explain a lot, like their customer base ...
... or you could save even more letters by going with the contraction form:
... which also sends a double entendre message, no?
sugar, fat and salt. i'm writing a song about them!
Taste buds, Schmaste buds. When you bite into one of those things you’re after a sugar-fueled rocket ride, not a discerning taste experience.
And you're certainly not after a doughnut.
