Happy National Doughnut Day!

Doughnuts from Dough

Have you heard? It's National Doughnut Day! This my friends is a real holiday, not one that was made up just a few years ago by some "Doughnut Board" but rather a day that was started by the Salvation Army in 1938 to celebrate the "lassies" who served up doughnuts to doughboys in WWI. Now that we've cleared that up, let's get to celebratng. Where will you get your doughnut on?

I'm hoping that I'll have the chance to get a doughnut from my fav shop in the city, DOUGH. If I get enough book writing done, I'm holding out for a chocolate frosted one, or perhaps a blood orange doughnut.

If you prefer to make your own here are some of my favorite recipes that I've made for my American Classics column  at Serious Eats over the past year...
