Glossary entry for
gravy ring

A gravy ring is a doughnut in the shape of a ring. It would be deep-fried and dusted with sugar. The local bakery shops used to have a machine in the window which mixed the batter, formed the rings, fried them and applied the sugar, a great source of fascination for small boys.
