Sprinkles For Breakfast

so which one is it?

Because Sprinkles for Breakfast is currently in the middle of a National Doughnut Tour, I get asked this question a lot. What is the correct way to spell the name of those delicious fried pieces of dough heaven? Is it D-O-U-G-H-N-U-T or D-O-N-U-T?

Well I am here to clear the air...the official way to spell it is DOUGHNUT. Although the shortened spelling has been around for a while, it became widely accepted after the opening of Dunkin' Donuts. That's right...Dunkin' Donuts has that much power. The D-O-N-U-T spelling is mostly used inside the United States, and if you look at our list, almost half of our stops use this untraditional spelling. But here at Sprinkles for Breakfast we like to follow tradition, and we use the original spelling (and that is only partly because we hate Dunkin' Donuts).

So now you know.

And if you haven't checked out our doughnut tour probably should.

I might be the only person in the history of the world that has ever been grounded from baking. That's right. When I was a teen, it wasn't the computer, or the phone or the tv that got taken away. For me, it was the unsalted butter.
