Donuts and Other Treats

Sweet bites of goodness.

When you think of desserts, usually cakes come to mind. There are, however, so many other delectable treats that you can make to impress your family and friends.

Donuts are surprisingly easy to make – all you need is the proper form pan. I prefer the taste of baked donuts to fried ones. Less mess, less work and just as delicious.

And, if you are not in the mood for donuts, then give some of these other great ideas a try!

Historians argue about who invented the first donut. Some say it was an American ship captain’s mother, Elizabeth Gregory, who created this doughy confection so her son Hanson and his crew could store pastries on long voyages. Others argue it was invented by the Dutch who, in the 17th century, brought the recipe with them when they immigrated. Yet others argue it was the ancient Greeks and Romans who fried small cakes and dipped them in honey. Whoever it may have been, according to statistics, sales from donuts have topped $40 billion US dollars in 2016.

Cheesecake was invented by Greeks who have been eating them for over four thousand years! The first cheesecakes are thought to have been made with wheat flour, pounded cheese and honey. It is known that these small cheesecakes were served to athletes during the first Olympic games held in 776 BCE.
