Donut or Doughnut? Which is more correct?

I've seen both, but auto-correct approves only "Doughnut".

  • The official dictionary spelling of the word is doughnut with donut generally being listed as a variant of the preferred original spelling. Doughnut is the original spelling of the word, coming onto the scene in the early 1800s.

  • Doughnut is the original spelling of the word, with donut being a more modern alternative spelling. Both are commonly accepted, yet doughnut is more correct.
