The warm doughnut is a powerful thing; even the most ardent of healthy eaters have a hard time resisting one. The best versions are crispy and crackly on the outside—perhaps with some glaze and sprinkles for added texture—then soft and tender on the inside. It’s a sweet treat that feels right for just about any time of day, whether it’s to start off the work week, as a pick-me-up with an afternoon coffee, or a straightforward dessert at the end of the evening.
This week, we’ll be honoring the wondrous doughnut by dedicating a feature to it every day. Come back daily to discover the top places to try doughnuts, some of the food world’s trendiest doughnut iterations, and (of course) our best-ever doughnut recipes.
