why do doughnuts have holes in the middle?!

i wonder why ?! why arent they complete with no holes!?

Report as

When donuts did not have holes, the middles used to come out uncooked and doughy. Hanson Gregory suggested that the middle just turns into a hole to avoid that problem.

Cos they bake easier?

I dunno, they'd just be a lump of dough without it, kinda like women... no I am most definitely joking.

If they didn't have holes, people couldn't buy the doughnut holes...

They have them because without them the holes would be soggy. Donuts were actually invented by accident and before the center was terrible

Bakers make them like that.

First they put a donut shaped dough on the long stick and bake it like that.

Wow, that sounded incredibly wrong.
