Variant(s): also do·nut
>Date: circa 1809
1: a small usually ring-shaped cake fried in fat
2: something (as a mathematical torus) that resembles a doughnut especially in shape
Forget the second definition. Today, our nation is honoring the golden glazed glory that are doughnuts. Many of you know about my love, and by love I mean near unhealthy obsession (hello, Just a Taste Doughnuthon), with deep fried dough. But you show me a doughnut that’s dipped, filled, dusted or sprinkled, and I’ll show you a country beaming with fried fulfillment.
