Krispy Kreme locations

It is relatively easy to get your free doughnut at Krispy Kreme locations. Krispy Kreme has a list of participating locations on their website. Once the store has opened on June 4, National Doughnut Day, stop in as soon after they open as you can. Claim your free doughnut. Don't forget to say "thanks" to the busy doughnut shop employees. At Krispy Kreme, the offer is only good while supplies last, so you will want to be sure to stop in on your way to work, not on the way home.

Dunkin Donuts locations participating

It is slightly more difficult to get a free doughnut at Dunkin Donuts. Dunkin Doughnuts locations are offering a free doughnut, but only with a drink purchase. It’ll take a purchase of at least a small iced coffee to get a free doughnut. It can be a very long day for the Dunkin Donuts location employees – so say thank you.

Make it the best National Donut Day

Everybody knows that doughnuts aren't exactly the healthiest of treats. Celebrating National Doughnut Day doesn't have to mean visiting Krispy Kreme locations or Dunkin Doughnuts locations. Make your own doughnuts instead. Start by creating a basic sweet dough, then just fry it and top as you wish. If it's your first time making doughnuts, try this recipe:

1 egg for structure

One quarter-cup sugar

1/4 cup honey or agave nectar

1/2 cup milk or liquid

2 tablespoons butter

2 cups sifted flour

teaspoons baking powder

Any toppings you would like – frosting, sprinkles, or cinnamon and sugar

Whisk together milk, egg, sugar, milk, and butter, then stir in flour, baking powder. Put the dough within the fridge or freezer until it is cold enough to work with, then cut it out into the shapes you would like, about 1/2 an inch thick. While you are chilling the dough, heat vegetable oil in a pan until it is 375 degrees – then fry your shapes until they’re toasty on both sides. Drain the doughnuts on paper towel, and top to your pleasure.
