HOW TO MAKE A DOUGHNUTS AND THE TYPe

 DOUGHNUTS

A doughnut or donut is a type of fried dough confectionery or dessert food. Donuts are one of the most popular foods of all time: sweet, delicious & can be eaten on the go. The origin is heavily debated.While no one really knows when it were invented or who invented them, they were originally made as a long twist of dough. Not in the ring form that is most common these days. It was also common in England for donuts to be made in a ball shape and injected with Jam after they were cooked. Hanson Gregory, an American, claimed to have invented the ring-shaped doughnut in 1847 aboard a lime-trading ship when he was 16 years old. Gregory was dissatisfied with the greasiness twisted into various shapes and with the raw center of regular ones.

WHY DO DOUGHNUTS HAVE HOLES?

Gregory suggested punching a hole in the middle of the fried cakes, so that the insides of the cakes would cook as evenly as the outsides. ... Punching a hole in the middle of the dough, however, allows the insides and the outsides to cook evenly, creating a perfect donut. The earliest origins of modern doughnuts are generally traced back to the olykoek ("oil(y) cake") Dutch settlers brought with them to early New York (or New Amsterdam). These closely resembled later ones but did not yet have their current ring shape.

TYPES

Doughnuts were brought to America by the Pilgrims and Dutch settlers. With time, they have become a distinctly American treat.

TOPPING

After frying, ring are often topped. Raised doughnuts are generally covered with a glaze (icing). Cake doughnuts can also be glazed, powdered with confectioner's sugar, or covered with cinnamon and granulated sugar. They are also often topped with cake frosting (top only) and sometimes sprinkled with coconut, chopped peanuts, or sprinkles (also called jimmies).

 

HOW LONG CAN YOU STORE?

Properly stored, freshly baked donuts (not cream-filled) will last for about 1 to 2 days at normal room temperature; cream-filled donuts should be stored in the refrigerator. With such a huge amount of sugar in a small package, your body pumps out loads of insulin to try to accommodate. A huge blood sugar spike leads to an even bigger sugar crash. This extreme up-and-down leaves you hungry soon after your breakfast — and you'll crave even more refined carbs.
