A doughnut, also known as a donut, is a popular deep-fried dessert or snack food that is typically ring-shaped. It is made from sweet dough that is either yeast-leavened or cake-like, and it is fried until golden brown. After frying, the doughnut is often coated in sugar, glaze, icing, or powdered sugar, adding a layer of sweetness and texture.
Doughnuts can be either filled with various sweet fillings, such as jam, custard, cream, or other flavored fillings, or they can be solid and ring-shaped. They come in a wide variety of flavors, including traditional ones like glazed, chocolate, or powdered sugar, as well as more unique and creative flavors like maple bacon, matcha green tea, or fruit-filled varieties.Doughnuts are a popular treat worldwide and are often enjoyed with a cup of coffee or tea. They are commonly found in bakeries, cafes, and specialized doughnut shops, and they are also made at home by home bakers.
The delightful combination of soft, fried dough and sweet toppings makes doughnuts a beloved indulgence for people of all ages.
