A doughnut was an Earth pastry consisting of a ring-shaped portion of dough, which could be covered with various toppings.

When a group of Vulcan physicians came to Enterprise during an Interspecies Medical Exchange conference in 2152, Captain Jonathan Archer remarked to Sub-Commander T'Pol, "You can bet they're not coming up for coffee and doughnuts." (ENT: "Stigma")

In the late 2250s, a doughnut was one of the many food items vomited out by food synthesizers when Me Hani Ika Hali Ka Po and Sylvia Tilly were in the mess hall aboard the USS Discovery. (ST: "Runaway")

In Benjamin Sisko's vision of 1950s Earth in 2374, Douglas Pabst brought doughnuts for the staff of Incredible Tales each day. However, his co-worker Herbert Rossoff accused him of bringing stale doughnuts and threatened to quit. Pabst maintained that the doughnuts he brought in had been baked no more than six hours ago, while Rossoff believed them to be a day old. Later, Rossoff quit, deciding that competing magazine Galaxy likely "knows the difference between a doughnut and a doorstop". (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")
