Our love affair with donuts goes as far as the mid-19th century. It was said that Elizabeth Gregory, mother of New England ship Captain Gregory, used to cook deep-fried dough made of nutmeg, cinnamon, and lemon rind so her son and his crew wouldn’t have to suffer scurvy and colds during their long times at sea.
She would stuff these delicious morsels with hazelnuts or walnuts in the center. Legend has it that Captain Gregory gave the doughnut its iconic shape when he cut through its center using the top of a round tin pepper box. But what would propel the doughnut into the hearts of future fans is the invention of the doughnut machine in 1920.
By the 1930s, these ring-shaped sweets would earn the moniker ‘the food hit of the Century of Progress’. While nutritionists may scoff at the calorie content, today, people still enjoy a donut – or two – with a hot cup of Joe.
In case you get a case of the munchies, these donut fonts should hopefully hit the spot!
