History of Doughnuts:
Mrs Gregory introduced the use of the name ‘doughnut’ in the mid-19th century. We owe a debt of gratitude to Mrs Gregory for her delicious invention! Mrs Gregory was worried about her son and his crew falling ill with scurvy and colds during their voyage. To ensure their health, she ingeniously used her son’s cargo to create a delectable treat. Combining spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon rind, she crafted a doughy delight that was not only flavourful but also nutritious. Adding a hazelnut in the centre ensured even cooking throughout the dough. Thus, the name ‘doughnut’ was born. Did you know that doughnuts were originally called olykoeks! It may sound a little weird, but this is a Dutch word that simply means oily cakes, because doughnuts were fried in oil.
Our Personal Favourites:
With its perfect balance of sweet and rich flavours, the chocolate iced custard doughnut is a true delight for your taste buds. The smooth and velvety custard filling beautifully complements the chocolate layer, creating a heavenly treat that satisfies all your cravings.
