  • Easier to grab. Usually a finger or thumb goes in there

    • And to cook it more evenly. If the middle was filled in, it would be too soft on the inside

  • Because that's how they make the Dough nuts!

  • Because it doesn't need any filling and it's probably easier to make multiple batches of it that way, as well as grab with your hands more firmly.

  • Agree with @Rahdle. Donuts are deep fried. They cook more evenly because of the hole.

  • Selling donut holes is another form of profit. Now you got 2 items on the menu and you'd probably charge the same price for a donut even if it didn't have that hole to begin with. Therefore is a way to increase profit margins.

  • Some kid didn't like how the middle of the little cakes his mom made were soggy, so he poked a hole in the middle of them and that was the first donut, I think. Someone correct me if I'm wrong

  • Because if you don't shape dough into nuts, then it's just bread.

  • I've read that they started doing this because they wouldn't get cooked fully without the hole. I've never liked donuts, bleh.

  • I believe the extra surface area makes the donut cook more evenly and keeps it from being oily.
