A donut is a sweet bread often topped with sugar or glaze or some deliciously-sweet combination of both. Well, what about a fried donut filled with a lathering of creamilicious cream? Well, such a concoction is no mystery to donut lovers across the globe. You see, September 14th is nationally known as Cream-Filled Donut Day!
Similar to a cream puff but less healthy (cream puffs are baked--never fried!), the cream-filled donut is popular in America via the likes of popular chains such as Dunkin Donuts (think Boston Cream donuts) or the long-gone Krispie Kreme scattered generously throughout the country to feed beloved fans of the fried dessert/breakfast/snack/what have you?
Whether you straddle the fence between yeast donuts and cake donuts, rest assured. Your taste buds will never be disappointed with the cream-filled donut, meant to ensnare the toughest donut critic.
The cream-filled donut is so widely popular in Chicago as well as around the country that a spew of donut shops have sprung up to cater to this mass of cream-filled donut aficianados. Here's just a handful of Chicago you may want to sample. Oh, and happy National Cream-Filled Donut Day!
