It’s National Donut Day!!

June 4, 2010


Did you know that it was National Donut Day??  Neither did I!

Thanks Facebook!

Wikipedia shares this with us: National Donut Day is on the first Friday of June each year and follows on the Donut Day event created by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.[1] The holiday celebrates the doughnut (a.k.a “donut”) — an edible, torus-shaped piece of dough which is deep-fried and sweetened. Many American doughnut stores offer free doughnuts on National Doughnut Day. In 2009, both independent doughnut shops[2] and large national franchises offered free doughnuts in the United States.

Oh Canada how I wish you would participate!

I (heart) my raised donut recipe.  It’s versatile, it’s quick, it’s delicious!

You could fill these babies with anything…jelly…bavarian cream… chocolate ganache…oh my!


Remember these?  Brown sugar candied bacon on a donut!

Which ever way they’re made, I’m Lovin’ Donuts and I’m Lovin’ Internation Donut Day!
