National Doughnut Day started in 1938 as a fundraiser for Chicago’s The Salvation Army. Their goal was to help those in need during the Great Depression and to honor The Salvation Army “Lassies” of World War I, who served doughnuts to soldiers.
In Chicago and other cities, National Doughnut Day is still a fundraiser for The Salvation Army. In 2017, the organization joined with Russ’s Market, Super Saver, LaMar’s Donuts, Hurts Donut and Krispy Kreme in Lincoln, Nebraska and Tempe, Arizona to raise funds on National Doughnut Day. –Wikipedia

Morning treat you will not want to miss! Easy doughnuts stuffed with cheesecake mixture and topped with sweet glaze and crushed Oreo cookies.Will Cook for Smiles
This is a yeasted doughnut recipe, which means they’re ultra fluffy and almost pillowy on the inside, and nice and crunchy on the outside. A quick coat in cinnamon sugar makes them extra special! And the filling, which is in my opinion the best part, is rich and creamy, with a subtle crunch from the roasted hazelnuts. It’s made with just 4 simple ingredients: heavy cream, butter, salt, and chocolate.Baker by Nature
