Of all the various delicacies America has kindly given us- Twinkies, Smores, Corn Dogs, none have entranced the British populace quite so much as the Doughnut.

Whether you’re in need of a warming dessert on a winter’s day, or simply a delectable bite to eat, the doughnut is capable of accommodating and satisfying all foodies.
