When Is National Doughnut (Donut) Day? Free Donuts!

National Doughnut Day is celebrated the first Friday of June each year.  That's June 6, 2014 this year. This tradition stems from the Doughnut Day event established by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the men and women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.  So this is actually a - no joke -patriotic day.  Most American Donut shops will be offering free donuts throughout the day!  If you find a shop that isn't offering free donuts, walk in and ask them why they are being unpatriotic!  Demand a Donut and declare that it is your patriotic right!

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts will be offering a Free Doughnut at most (if not all) of their locations.

I couldn't wait....   So I bought a box yesterday.  

A few of them were casualties and didn't make it home!

Sacrifices have to be made!

If you can't make it to a doughnut shop today, or just want to try your luck making some at home, here are a few great recipes:
