    Donut is absolutely correct. These pastries are not all necessarily made of dough, and the name refers to a type of pastry, not its origin.

    One that argues it is a "Doughnut" should henceforth be required to refer to some as doughnuts and others as batternuts.

    "Doughnut" is the grammatically correct spelling of the word.

    Why was maple not listed? Love maple.

    I prefer to spell it Homer J Simpson style "Dohnut"

  • Karen - 7 years ago

    I say Doughtnut. Because Doughtnuts are made out of DOUGH not DO.

    Damn, I wouldn't fit in around CNN. My favorite doughnuts are jelly-filled and my favorite cookies are oatmeal raisin.

    I guess lots of foreign people are selling and buying doughnuts, or is it donuts?
