Happy National Doughnut Day! I’m convinced that fried dough is a universal language, so if you haven’t already gone down to your local doughnut shop to get your hands on this quintessential American classic, check out these sweet, tantalizing and artery-clogging recipes from around the world. We recommend you go and try all of them, but you might want to check with your doctor first.
Struffoli | Italy
This succulent pyramid of goodness is a popular dish at my house around Christmas and Easter (and I always get in trouble for sneaking pieces before dinner). Struffoli hales from Naples, Italy and is often piled into a pyramid-like structure. Unlike the traditional doughnut, they’re small and pack a crunchy punch that reveals a soft, airy inside. They’re often coated in honey and sprinkled with cinnamon, orange rinds or sprinkles.
