Happy National Do(ugh)nut Day!

This June 1st is National Donut Day! Or, as some of us prefer to call it, Doughnut Day. Why we shortened that word to five letters, I'll never know, but nevertheless, this is a day for great celebration. 

Doughnuts are wonderful creations that can range from light and fluffy to dense and moist, depending on the type. But, most people have to go out to a bakery that makes doughnuts to be able to eat one. Below is a list of doughnut cookbooks to help you make them at home, using the equipment you probably already have in your kitchen. This list contains books I have personally tried out and successfully made doughnuts with, so if I can do it, you should be able to as well. Happy doughnut making!
