A dessert called a donut (or doughnut) is a favourite around the world. The Dutch pilgrims brought these deep-fried bread balls to America first. They have evolved into a variety of shapes over time. And if you enjoy donuts, you are aware that nothing tastes or feels as good as a warm, freshly glazed donut. A delicious doughnut always comes to our rescue whether we have a sweet tooth or are just searching for a tasty dessert to go with our evening mug of coffee. When it comes to our love of donuts, it's important to be aware of the countless variations that are available worldwide. Here is a list of the top 5 donut varieties you should be aware of.

Yeast donut

Raised donuts is another name for yeast donuts. These doughnuts, as the name implies, use yeast as a leavener to give the interior a light and airy texture. They are less likely to crumble because they are packed with air space.

Cake donut

These donuts are leavened with baking powder as opposed to yeast donuts. They are dense towards the base and have a cake-like texture. Cake donuts can hold all of your favourite toppings because of their cakey, hefty foundation.

Cruller donut

Crullers are a different kind of donut that you should be aware of. These twisted, unusually shaped donuts might be circular or rectangular. The crullers in New England tend to be rectangular in shape, as opposed to the typical ring shape of the French cruller. Additionally, they frequently have a honey or vanilla glaze.

Long John donut

These doughnuts in the form of bars are yeast-raised and occasionally filled with custard or jelly. They resemble eclairs but are fried as opposed to baked. Long Johns are either completely covered in glaze or have icing on top.
