Why is it that “donut” (or “doughnut” if that’s how you spell it) sounds so much like “do not”? Probably because these decadent morsels are packed with butter and sugar and a slew of other ingredients your doctor advises against.  Who doesn’t love a good doughnut? Cakey or light, frosted or glazed, filled or in hole form, doughnuts are just a (very good) excuse to eat cake for breakfast. There are a lot of great breakfast pastries out there, guys. But none of them, not even the holy of holiest of French pastries — the croissant — can stand up next to a good doughnut.
