The doughnut has a separate fan base of its own and honestly, it should be considered as an individual dish in itself. Today is the day to celebrate this food even more, as every year on the first Friday in June, people in the US and some other countries participate in World Doughnut Day and pay their tribute to the Salvation Army named "Doughnut Lassies". 

The army was created by some volunteer women to support the US soldiers during World War 1. They supplied coffee and fried doughnuts to warriors along with other essential commodities. This boosted the morale of the brave men at the war. Notably, ladies from the group, who used to serve those doughnuts were named "Donut Lassies." These women are still lending their support to the men on the front lines. 

These days, the doughnut has become the ultimate savior to calm our sweet cravings with its delicious flavors. A doughnut is a simple dish created by the combination of flour, sugar, eggs, and milk, and deep-fried. Though there are a plethora of desserts to try, doughnut's frosting is what makes it special from the rest of the sweets. Here, we tell you about a list of the 5 best mouth-watering doughnuts that will surely make you love them more.
