    I can barely imagine Jason making a food petition on pancakes. How do they look like German chocolate, red velvet, angel, or any other pastry known as a cake when cooked in a pan?

    The shape is a of a torus. Doughtorus would be closer to reality. Though some do have nuts in them or on them.

    Love the punchline. Washington Irving is cited with coining the word “Doughnut” but he was referring to small balls of dough fried and sweetened. As happens the term spread to the doughnuts we know today. The trouble with Doughtorus is Jelly doughnuts and the like which have no hole.

    Hmm… I always assumed that doughnuts were named by analogy with hardware nuts (which are distorted tori,) but can’t find any sources for why those nuts are called so…

    Homer Simpson in that alternate universe:

    “Marge, could you kindly pass me a donut?”

    “What’s a doughnut?”

    “AHH! AHHHHH!” [jumps back in his time machine]

    “Oh look, it’s raining again.” [raining doughnuts]

    I don’t see a nut, Peter. I see someone who’s off his.

    Come to think of it, why DO we call them doughnuts?

    “Mmm—doughtori.” [Drool … ]

    Nope—sorry. I’m sticking with “donuts” / “doughnuts”. Just not the same.

    I think the nut in donut may refer to the fact that the dough often included nutmeg for flavor.

    Doughtorus! Exactly! People are tori as well, the hole is the alimentary canal! Which you can put a doughnut through! Try it today! It’s very meta!

    Actually the first doughnuts were like our current doughnut holes, so they resembled a nut. Later someone created larger ones with holes and called them oil cakes. (The holes made it easier to fry the larger ones evenly.) But they quickly obtained the same name as their smaller versions.

    Doughnuts and donuts are connected.In a plane of dough the donuts are punched out. As connected hexagons with the middle punched out for a similar deep fried product.After the deep fat process the product is almost round.

    Take a careful look.

    I see Jason’s point, but “doughtorus” might make people think of Taurus the bull, and if they knew about Jason’s motives, they might say, “You said a doughnut doesn’t look like a nut. A doughtorus doesn’t look like a bull, either”.
