Today is about to become your new favorite “holiday,” because it’s National Doughnut Day. Even though we associate the sweet treats with jelly or lots of powdered sugar, they can take on the flavors of any dessert. Stuffed with cream, they become Boston Cream Pie doughnuts, while after being coated with cinnamon sugar, they taste like churros. You can even stack some with frosting to make an Icebox Doughnut Birthday Cake.
Take a walk on the wild side with some of our favorite delicious combinations below — even a savory chicken-and-waffles one — and for even more crazy confections, check out Donut Showdown Thursdays at 9pm ET.

Doughnuts and cheeseburgers aren’t exactly the best of friends but, in recent years, they’ve become at least acquaintances. The world has its share of doughnut burgers, but they all share one thing in common, the doughnut simply replaces the bun. Here is a doughnut that is actually stuffed with ooey, gooey cheeseburger goodness. It’s like jelly … with protein.
Philadelphia’s PYT Burger is no stranger to these pages, making something of a habit out of unveiling kooky burgers. This is the only one that doubles as both dinner and dessert, however. The D’oh Nut Burger is essentially a cheeseburger forced inside of a glazed doughnut, with chocolate-covered bacon bits sprinkled on top. Sweet, delicious heart disease. This burger is only available for a limited time, however, so you had better get on it. Either that or you can just buy your own doughnut and wedge a burger inside of it.
For more outrageous doughnut creations, check out a new episode of Donut Showdown tonight at 9pm ET.
Surfing the wave of mash-up mania that brought the world the Cronut™ and Ramen Burger, we decided to beat the winter by partnering with our brilliant culinary team in order to come up with THE most-indulgent comfort food. Together with Food Network, we’ve mashed up some classic comfort foods in unique — and dare we say, mind-blowing — ways. Over the past several weeks, we’ve revealed the ways we mixed and remixed some of our favorite dishes, with one recipe appearing on Cooking Channel and the other on Food Network.
Though birthday cake is traditionally round, layered and bedecked in colorful icing, these days, it seems that any pastry punctured with candles — from soft cookie cakes to icebox pies — can stand in for the classic at celebratory festivities. At the same time, “birthday cake” has become a popular flavor at ice cream shops and in packaged consumer goods, interpreted across the board as an intense vanilla with frosting and sprinkles. For this week’s ultimate and final mash-up, we’re rethinking birthday cake — from a shape and flavor perspective — by combining it with the dessert superstar of the moment: the doughnut.

Use leftover mashed potatoes from turkey day to make Roger Mooking's potato pancakes for Hanukkah. Brilliant!
When Hanukkah falls early, as it does this year, it means Thanksgiving feasting and loading up on fried Hanukkah treats all in the same week. I’m ready. To celebrate the oil that burned for eight days, crispy potato pancakes and jelly-filled doughnuts (sufganiyot) are customary Hanukkah fare. And let’s not forget the chocolate gelt—I go for the dark chocolate coins in silver wrappers (the milk chocolates are usually gold).
