Everyone has his or her own favorite comfort food, and for some, it's doughnuts. Whether there's cream dripping out of it, or it's covered with chocolate, a doughnut can really make someone's day. If doughnuts drive you crazy and you can't spend even a day without one, you must be in love with doughnuts. And if you call yourself a doughnut lover, you ought to know some basic types of doughnuts to prove yourself one.

1. Chocolate Frosted Doughnut

Covered with chocolate layer and sprinkles, this doughnut is definitely for chocolate lovers.

2. Cinnamon Twist Doughnut

This doughnut is shaped and twisted by hand, then covered with cinnamon sugar. 

3. Cruller

There are two kinds of crullers: hand-twisted cake doughnuts, which are more akin to maple bars; and French crullers made with pâte à choux, which are lighter than air, with all sorts of nooks and crannies to hold onto their light honey glaze.

4. Strawberry Frosted Doughnut

With fresh strawberries baked in, and a sweet, tangy pink strawberry icing, these are a perfect treat for breakfast.

5. Old-fashioned Doughnut

Slightly crunchy on the outside, cakey and soft on the inside. All the little cracks in these doughnuts just soak up the shiny, crackled glaze.

6. Jelly Doughnut

A jelly (or jam) doughnut is a doughnut stuffed with jelly filling. These light doughnuts will be the hit of any autumn or winter brunch. 

7. Blueberry Doughnut

They’re sweet and crisp on the outside, a cross between a cake doughnut and an old-fashioned doughnut on the inside, and packed with blueberry bliss. 

8. Glazed Doughnut

The glaze will stick to your fingers, tempting you to take a bite of the fresh doughnut. And once you take a bite, you’ll revel in the sweet chewiness.

9. Cream-Filled Doughnut

These cream filled doughnuts are soft pillows with an easy cream filling. The cream filling couldn't be easier. It's made with instant vanilla pudding. The yeast doughnuts are deep fried to perfection and then the filling is piped into them.

10. Boston Kreme Pie Doughnut

Filled with vanilla custard and dipped in chocolate, these doughnuts would make Boston proud.

11. Sour Cream Doughnut

A sour cream doughnut is a type of doughnut that incorporates sour cream into the batter. The added cream makes it extra moist and yummy!

12. Apple-Crumb Doughnut

This is an apple-flavored doughnut covered with crumb topping. Think of it like a hand held dessert. 

13. Doughnut Holes

These doughnut holes are so rich, so decadent, so downright perfect, you probably couldn't handle a whole doughnut's worth of them anyway. 

14. Chocolate Cake Doughnut

Just a perfectly normal, moist, yet crumby chocolate cake donut. But they are far from basic! They have a deep chocolate flavor, and the crispy glaze on the outside gives them some much appreciated extra sweetness.

If you haven't tried all of these doughnuts, no worries. But take this list and check them off one by one if you want to call yourself a doughnut lover.
