Doughnuts Around the World

Hi Cook'n,

There is nothing more universal than fried dough covered in sugar. Do you have a name and/or picture of how different countries do their ‘donut’?

Thanks!

Darcy

Hi Darcy,


Your question was a fun one to research for you. The world is so similar and so different at the same time. Fried dough is a universal delight, and can be found in all kinds of shapes and flavors — from round and thick and filled with just about anything, to stick-shaped or thin and flat. The style of preparation also differs depending on the region, and while all donuts are fried (or it wouldn’t be a donut, right?), some are cooked in oil while others are simmered in ghee. Enjoy the names of the country and their version of the donut in the pictures below:



Italy – Zeppole



Brazil – Bolinho do chuva



Mongolia – Boortsog



India – Jalebi



Sweden – Rosettes



China – Shuangbaotai



Germany – Schneeballen



Greece – Loukoumandes



Mexico – Bunelos



Norway – Smultring
