Did you know that the original National Doughnut Week was founded back in 1992 by Christopher Freeman who, after watching Michael Buerk’s crisis report on the Ethiopian famine, wanted to use his skills and encourage the baking industry to help children in need. Almost 30 years on, National Doughnut Week has raised almost £1million for charity.
Throughout this week many businesses including bakers, coffee shops, offices will be taking part and selling lots of delicious doughnuts to raise funds for The Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury.
Chris chose doughnuts because of their popularity, and he believes that everyone deserves a treat from time to time. We totally agree which is why the Hitchen Kitchen have been busy creating naturally fabulous flavours for a range of doughnuts as well as doughnut flavoured milkshakes.
Here are just some of the recipes of the doughnuts that our staff will be enjoying this Friday, and for every one eaten we will be dough-nating!
