Many children are interested in a hole in the center of a donut? Why is there a hole? What for? There are several theories about the history behind the origin of the hole in the donut. The most popular story is an American sailor, Hanson Gregory, who created a donut hole in 1847 while boarding a trading ship. At that time, he was only 16 years old.
As the story progressed, Gregory did not like the dough served on the ship. Even though the exterior is crispy, the inside is still immature. He then proposed how to make soft donuts and expand by making a hole in the middle of the dough, so that when the outside of the dough is cooked, the inside is also cooked. Experts believe that reason makes sense.
When the mixture is fried, the outside will ripen quickly. To further ripen the inside of the dough, the mixture must be longer in the oil which then leads to the browned outside.
