Doughnuts are small rings of lightly sweetened deep-fried yeast dough.  They maybe sprinkled with icing sugar or sugar or finished with a strawberry chocolate or butterscotch icing.  Some doughnuts are made in twisted, oblong or round shapes, usually served coated in cinnamon and sugar, iced or filled with custard, fruit, cream or jam.  

The North American doughnut with a hole in the centre was the original form and was made by wrapping dough around the stick, which was then immersed in hot oil.  

The first doughnut cutter was patented in the 1870s by John Blondel.
