Doughnuts have a long and interesting history. Although Krispy Kremes are famous in the USA today and Tim Hortons is equally popular in Canada, doughnuts probably originated in Holland, where they were known as oily cakes. True story.

As the story goes along through history, the contemporary American version and name may have been created by a Mrs. Gregory, mother to a ships captain making his way across the Atlantic to the New World. Anxious to be sure that he ate well and avoided scurvy, Mrs. Gregory filled a bit of round dough with lemon and nuts in the middle of it where it probably wouldnt cook through at any rate. Thus the name today: dough nut.

Is the story true? Does it matter? What a fun tale to share with your family and friends over this scrumpdillyicious dessert. By the way, it completes itself by being smothered and baked in a sweet sauce. Yum.

Another kind of doughnut, beignets, is popular in Louisiana. These deep fried pieces of deliciousness are served with chicory coffee, another deeply southern drink everyone should try. At the famous Caf du Monde in New Orleans the beignets come smothered deep in icing sugar. There is nothing so satisfying as eating beignets and listening to a local street musician and smothered in icing sugar.

However you eat them, try this recipe. It has only a few ingredients you keep at home, and will have your family singing the blues and licking their fingers.
