Fun Fact About Donuts

Today, June 6, 2014 is National Donut Day: Dutch settlers who brought apple and cream pies, cookies and cobbler to the United States also introduced doughnuts. The doughnuts were called olykoeks, or oily cakes – sweet dough balls fried in pork fat. Early doughnuts were often filled with apples, prunes or raisins. The name “doughnut” may refer to the nuts put in the middle of the dough ball to prevent an uncooked center or possibly to “dough knots” – another popular shape for the olykoeks. Today, “doughnut” and “donut” are used interchangeably.
