Ever Wondered Why Donuts Have Holes In The Center?

Donut, sometimes called as the doughnut, is a yummy mouth-watering dish which is made up of fried dough. They come in a huge variety of flavors, sizes, and shapes. The common thing in all types of donuts is the primary sugar-coating. The major difference occurs in the toppings. The US celebrates World Donut Day every year on first Friday of June.

The most common type of donut is one with a ring shape and a hole in its center. But have you ever wondered what the purpose of that hole is, or what is the sense behind it?

There are many theories that explain the reason behind a donut’s hole. One of them is proposed by Mr. Hanson Gregory.

He was a mariner, who spent most of his time on the ship. When he invented donut’s hole, he was just 16. But the idea landed in his mind as a result of the consistent and boring donuts served on his ship. The donuts remained crisp at the edges but lumpy and greasy from the middle. Then, Mr. Hanson suggested that if we create a hole in the middle by punching, all surfaces will be evenly baked during its cooking, also the whole donut will be crispy and crunchy.

The hole enables proper and even cooking of the insides of the donut and thus helping to serve a perfectly crunchy, non-greasy donut.

Also, there might be another reason for the presence of holes in donuts. Donuts became popular in America along with bagels. Bagels are bread- made dishes which look like donuts. They were served stacked on long sticks or long ropes. People claim that holes in donuts help them to be served like bagels, and thus donuts became highly popular in America as well.
