Long John (doughnut)
|Alternative names||Cream Stick, Chocolate Bar, Maple Bar (in some regions)|
|Main ingredients||Dough, glaze or icing|
The Long John is a bar-shaped, yeast risen pastry often coated with glaze or icing. In some parts of the United States, such as the southern Indiana region, unfilled bar doughnuts are called Long Johns and their filled counterparts are called éclairs. In other parts of the United States, such as the Mid-Atlantic, éclairs are marketed as Long Johns; the two pastries look similar but are created with different types of dough and fillings.
A Bismark is a filled round doughnut.
On the American west coast, Long Johns are called bar doughnuts, such as Maple Bars and Chocolate Bars, depending on the frosting. Filled Long Johns are called filled bars, or filled bar doughnuts. For example, a custard-filled or unfilled Long John with maple-flavored icing is called a Maple bar in California.
Some parts of the American Midwest also call this type of pastry a cream stick, when filled.
