- Whatever flavor is your favorite, just make sure the day does not go by, without having one or more cream filled donuts. Donuts originate from fried pastries from Denmark. The first American who made ring pastry was Hansen Gregory. While in Europe fried pastries still look like a ball and are often filled with jam, the American cream-filled donuts are filled with vanilla or chocolate cream, sometimes more like pudding. Source
