The first Friday in June of each year is marked as National Doughnut Day. Created by the Salvation Army back in 1983, the tradition is still continued today to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. Today marks the 73rd National Doughnut Day and to celebrate, Krispy Kreme is offering one free doughnut to each customer while Dunkin` Donuts is giving a free doughnut to each customer who buys an eligible drink. Haven’t got your doughnut yet? No worries, you have the rest of the day to go grab one.
For the people more interested in celebrating today in a hands-on manner, here is the original recipe that the Salvation Army used. If you’re looking for something more fulfilling, try this doughnut bacon burger recipe. If you’re looking for a recipe that’s less threatening to your waistline, try this low-fat baked doughnut recipe.
So whether you decide on a free doughnut or a doughnut you made yourself, just remember to enjoy it as Homer Simpson would.
