It's that time again—the time to celebrate the sweet, deep-fried joy brought upon by doughnuts.
In honor of today's National Doughnut Day, here are some of our favorite doughnut posts over the past year. We've got recommendations, a glossary, videos, recipes, and more dedicated to this blessed ring of wheat-based heaven. Unfortunately, we can't share real doughnuts with you, but you're best off buying a dozen (or more) fresh doughnuts at your local doughnut shop anyway.
