Quick Reference

A cruller is a small cake made from a sweet dough twisted into a ring or plaited shape and then deep-fried. First mentioned in the early nineteenth century by Washington Irving, it is essentially a North American phenomenon, and its linguistic origins (Dutch krulle, derived from the adjective krul, ‘curly’) probably reflect its introduction into American cuisine by early Dutch settlers.
