Who put the hole in doughnuts?

asked : meminta

to take out : membuang / mengeluarkan

Doughnuts are believed to have been the idea of an American schoolboy, called Hanson Gregory, who didn’t like his mum’s cooking very much. In the time before people had fridges food like cakes would go hard very quickly. Whenever Hanson got to the middle of his mum’s dough cakes they were too hard to eat. So he asked her to take the middle out before frying the dough. The idea soon caught on with Hanson’s pals and soon everyone was eating doughnuts.
