ough·​nut ˈdō-(ˌ)nət. variants or less commonly donut. : a small usually ring-shaped piece of sweet fried dough. : something (such as a mathematical torus) that has a round shape like a doughnut.

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.

A doughnut, also spelled as donut, is a type of sweet deep fried pastry.

There you have it, the versatility of donuts. We can see that over the years, donuts have been both a form of dessert and breakfast food and continue to do so, depending on the person you ask. So it all comes down to preference.

What is the difference between donuts and doughnuts?

Donut is an alternate spelling of doughnut. Some dictionaries point out that donut is rarely used outside the United States. All of them recognize doughnut as the main spelling, as do some of the more popular style guides. Doughnut might be the spelling you should use if you want to be sure you’re not making a mistake.

Why donut has a hole?

To fully cook the insides of the dough, the dough would have to stay in the oil for a longer time, which would lead to the outsides becoming burnt. Punching a hole in the middle of the dough, however, allows the insides and the outsides to cook evenly, creating a perfect doughnut.

What is the history of donuts?

In the United States, the donut’s roots date to the 1700s with the Dutch settlers’ olykoek (oil cake), the “grandpa of the donut”. In the early 19th century, donuts were mentioned in American food chapters of English cookbooks.
