Doughnut Day: Retro Ads & Recipes

National Doughnut (Donut) Day falls on the first Friday in June. That's today! Doughnut Day was created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.

Many American doughnut shops offer free doughnuts on National Doughnut Day. Check out your local donut shop for deals!

In honor of the holiday, and I do appreciate a good doughnut, I'm posting several Retro Ads from the 40s, 50s and 60s for Donuts (however you spell it)! Scroll down for a Crisco Sugar Donut recipe from the Crisco Cookbook.
