Can you stand another post about apple cider? :)
Hanukkah (Chanukah) is a Jewish holiday that starts from December 1 till December 9 this year. It is an eight-day Jewish holiday which commemorates the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem; it is also called the Festival of Light. Even though I'm not a Jewish but I'm fascinated by the relationship of each of its holiday with foods. The tradition of eating deep-fried foods is observed, Ashknenazi Jews are making latkes and Shepardic Jews are making donuts or fritters.
I think I might fit well in the Shepardic families since I love eating deep-fried foods, and this time of year I finally had a chance to try the apple cider donuts. The recipe can be found here, and I followed it thoroughly, no change this time. The texture of the donuts were good, with fine crumbs and tender, they're delightful to eat. The only thing I was disappointed was that my donut cutter was a bit too big. As a result the donuts were a bit flatter and very, very big. Stick with a smaller cutter and you'll be having a good time making this! Next year I'm baking sufganiyot :)
