A donut or donut (/ˈdoʊnət/) is a type of food made from fermented fried dough.275 It is popular in many countries and prepared in various forms as a dessert that can be made at home or purchased as a snack at bakeries, supermarkets, food stalls, and certified specialty suppliers.
Donut is the traditional spelling, while donut is the simplified version; The terms are often used interchangeably.
Donuts are usually deep fried from flour dough, but other types of dough can also be used. Different additives and flavors are used for different types, such as sugar, chocolate or maple glaze.
Donuts may also include water, fermentation, eggs, milk, sugar, oil, margarine, and natural or artificial flavors.
The two most common types are ring donuts and stuffed donuts, which are injected with fruit preserves (jelly candy), cream, custard, or other sweet fillings.
Small pieces of dough are sometimes cooked as donut holes. Once the donuts are fried, they can be glazed with icing sugar, brushed with icing or chocolate, or covered with powdered sugar, cinnamon, sprinkles, or fruit.
Other shapes include spheres, flat balls, buckles, and other shapes. Donuts are also divided into donuts (including old-fashioned donuts) and yeast-type donuts. Cakes are often accompanied by coffee or milk.
They are sold in cake shops, convenience stores, petrol/gas stations, coffee shops or fast food restaurants.
