You mean spelling, not term. Either spelling is correct.

The original spelling was doughnut, as it was made with dough. But over the decades, it got shortened to donut.

I use donut. I imagine doughnut will eventually go the way of colour, or flavour, but those two might still be in use around the British Isles; I'm not sure. In any case, most spell checkers prefer doughnut over donut.

Depends on where you live. "Donut" is the more rational spelling, but when has English been partial to phonetic spellings?
