Donut History

Donut History

Donuts are a controversial story. One suggestion is that the Dutch settlers of North America showed the popularity of other American delicacies, including doughnut cookies and cream pies. In the mid-19th century, doughnuts were called Dutch Olix (cake oil), based on this idea. However, there is also strong evidence that Native Americans created this cake in the past.

American Hansen Gregory said he discovered donuts in 1847, when he was 16, when he went to a lime factory. Gregory doesn't like the greasy and crunchy skin of regular fritters, and centers aren't always bought. He said he crashed into an orange boat around noon, and then taught his mother in the process that he found a hole.

In the book, Almanzo's mother, Farmer Boy, makes two different types of doughnuts, one pressed and one ring-shaped, called "New Displays." The book says that when the spinning wheel spins during cooking, what looks like a wheel must spin itself.

According to anthropologist Paul R. Mullins, doughnuts first appeared in the American diet in 1803. By the mid-19th century, doughnuts looked a lot like modern doughnuts and were considered pure American food.
