A food review written by: Lee Sonogan
(18th century) Fried dough confection/desert food
“Whether you take the doughnut hole as a blank space or as an entity unto itself is a purely metaphysical question and does not affect the taste of the doughnut one bit.”
― Haruki Murakami, A Wild Sheep Chase
The doughnut or simply donut comes in many variants and flavours. Deep fried dough that is a sweet and tasty snack. They can be homemade, in food stall, supermarkets and franchised specialty vendors. Donuts are ringed shaped and can be made in different ways. Toppings and flavourings to a donut only improve the experience. Some donuts are even filled with injected cream, custard, fruit preserves or any other sweet fillings. Yeast and cake styled are both delicious and are both structurally different.
Types of donuts you can buy and consume:
- Frosted doughnut
- Cinnamon twist doughnut
- French Cruller
- Jelly Doughnut
- Glazed doughnut
- Lemon-filled donuts
- Powdered donuts
- Cider doughnut
- Cream filled doughnut
- Much more you should try!
The ingredients in a donut may include flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, eggs, cooking oil, water, leavenings, shortenings, natural/artificial flavours, chocolate, maple glazing and much more. Doughnuts are unhealthy, some less so than others. According to Prevention Magazine, doughnuts provide essential nutrients such as thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin, along with beneficial fiber; but, they are high in sugar and calories.
A sweet sugary snack that tastes good with every bite. While food resembling donuts have been found in many ancient sites, the earliest origins of the doughnuts are credited to Dutch settlers that arrived in early New York. Frosted doughnuts are my favourite out of all of them. I recommend donuts to everyone who likes visiting a bakery or like sweet food with many choices.
PS – I want one now!
“Some people aren’t good at anything. Some people just really like donuts.”
