There seems to be some significant controversy to the inventor of the doughnut (or donut). Although a Captain Hanson Crockett Gregory is credited with inventing the doughnut with a hole in the middle, the origin of the word and the first doughnut seems rather more difficult to pinpoint. I found these links (although not completely sure of their trustworthyness):

Then again this seems to claim that they are even older:

Is there any definitive thought on the issue?

I think there's already a thread dealing with this subject elsewhere on these august forums.
