What is National Donut Day?

National Donut Day was established by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor women who provided donuts to soldiers during World War I.

Salvation Army volunteers went to France in 1917 to provide essentials and sweet snacks to inspire confidence and hope for those fighting for our country.

Since then, sweet donuts have been considered a symbol of hope and comfort for Americanshow reported through Cision PR Newswire.

“The donut is a long-standing symbol of the hope and help that The Salvation Army provides during difficult times,” said Salvation Army National Commander Commissioner Kenneth Hodder.

“Every year we look forward to celebrating this sweet holiday and honoring the brave work of our donut girls on the front lines.”

“National Donut Day gets us thinking about ‘donuts that are good for you’ and making those treats taste even sweeter,” continued Commissioner Hodder.

Originally started as a fundraising event for the Chicago Salvation Army, it’s still celebrated today after 84 years of tradition.

How can I make donuts at home?

The Salvation Army has shared their official WW1 donut recipe on their website for everyone to try in the comfort of their own home.

To make two dozen donuts you will need:

  • A big egg
  • Two and a half cups of flour
  • A cup of sugar
  • Two and a half teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1/8 tablespoon salt
  • 7/8 cup milk
  • Half tub lard (Although they used lard in 1917, they recommend substituting vegetable or coconut oil)

After collecting all the ingredients, follow the instructions below to prepare delicious donuts:

  • 1: Gather all the ingredients and add them (except tar/oil) to make a dough.
  • 2: Thoroughly knead the combined dough, roll and cut into ring shapes less than 1/4 inch thick. You can use donut cutters or even tins that lie around your kitchen.
  • 3: Place the rings in the hot oil. Slowly flip the donuts to ensure they brown on the same side.
  • 4: When everything is fried and browned, remove the donuts and drain any oils.
  • 5: Finish off with powdered sugar or another topping of your choice before enjoying.
