Incidentally, don't tell Homer Simpson this, but did you know that National Doughnut (or Donut) Day is celebrated on the first Friday of June (which is today), and there's also a National Doughnut week in UK? According to the explanation on Lamar's Donuts site, National Donut Day is celebrated on the first Friday in June? In 1917, Salvation Army female volunteers known as “lassies” prepared thousands of fresh donuts to the homesick soldiers that served in France during World War I. National Donut Day was officially established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to raise much-needed funds during the Great Depression.
I should have gone out to get a free donut at the local Lamars or Krispy Kreme stores today. But it was raining again this morning and I didn't get over the to the nearest doughnut store, so I made a batch of doughnuts to pacify
There is another doughnut recipe from Gourmet that I tried sometime ago here.
And here's some names that doughnuts/donuts go by around the world...
Italy = fritole
Montenegro = ustipci
Mexico = churrro
Turkey = lokma
France = beignet
Germany = krapfen
Hungary = langos
India = balushai
Netherlands = oliebollen
Yum! That looks so cute & fun.
