“Donut Day” 2014


In this month’s edition of “The Dorsey Dish” we celebrate The Donut!

Do you Love Donuts?

National “Donut Day” will be here on June 6th, 2014! Several donut shops will be giving away donuts to help promote and celebrate the holiday. Whether powdered, filled, or topped with an endless amount of ingredients – donuts have been America’s favorite deep fried “O” shaped snack for a long time, perfect for anytime of the day.

History of Donut Day

In 1938 (just four years after Dorsey Schools was founded), “Donut Day” began as a fundraiser to honor and celebrate the men and women who served donuts and coffee to U.S. soldiers in the trenches during World War I. The Salvation Army began this movement to give spiritual aid and comfort to American soldier and allies. This may be the reason why donuts are considered to be one America’s most favorite breakfast and comfort foods.


Donuts, donuts, donuts

Making donuts is probably a lot easier than you think. The process doesn’t require a lot of ingredients or equipment. The great thing about donuts is that there are so many opportunities for creativity with an endless assortment of donut flavors, fillings, and toppings. Cake, raised, or yeast donuts add even more options for your culinary and baking endeavors.
