If you live in one of these cities, you already know how excellent and convenient these vegan options are.

National Doughnut Day

National Doughnut Day was founded during World War I to honor “doughnut lassies,” volunteers who would deliver food to the front lines. These individuals soon discovered that doughnuts were a practical and effective way to deliver and prepare food. They could even cook up to seven doughnuts at once using the war helmets as a pan.

The National Doughnut Day holiday is celebrated each year on the first Friday of June. This year’s National Donut Day falls on June 2. Many shops offer free doughnuts on this special day, but some vegans may have difficulty finding a plant-based doughnut in their city.

If you don’t have a vegan doughnut shop in your city for National Doughnut Day, consider making your vegan doughnuts at home. You may find your homemade vegan doughnuts are even tastier than those offered in shops. Get ready to discover an array of mouthwatering vegan doughnut recipes that promise to tickle your taste buds and revolutionize your home baking experience.
