Why Are Donuts Called Donuts

Why Are Donuts Called Donuts

The history of the donut is shrouded in mystery. What we do know, though, is that these fried treats were originally called “oily cakes.” The early Americans took this fact quite literally and named them olykoeks which translated to ‘oil cake.’ A woman also added nuts into dough before frying it; thus giving rise to wonderful breakfast item -the Donut!

Why Do Donuts Have Holes

The doughnut is a perfect combination of sweet and savory. It’s not too much inside where you can taste the sugar, but also has plenty more salt on top for that extra kick!
In order to achieve this delicious treat we have two options: either leave them in longer so they’re cooked all over; or punch holes throughout evenly like I did here- which allows both sides get fried at once without any burned bits evident when taking out my presently edible creation from its fryer
