This year Hanukkah falls on the same day as Christmas. I love this. It means we will have the day off to celebrate with friends and family.
That calls for doughnuts! Sephardic doughnuts. These doughnuts are also called bumuelos because Sephardic Jews are from Spain. Hanukkah is the festival of oil, so of course doughnuts are the perfect food to celebrate. Let’s face it: jelly doughnuts are always perfect. I found this amazing recipe for filled jelly doughnuts from one of my fave aussie dessert bloggers, Sarah from Sugar Hit . You can find the full recipe on her blog. Let me know how it is if you give it a try.
Sweet dreams xx

Hey everyone! I’m Nicole, Annette’s web-manager and friend, and I’m back today to help you celebrate a very exciting holiday…Happy National S’mores Day! Did you know there was such a thing? Neither did I until I stumbled upon it on…where else? The internet. Some of these holidays are just silly, but if it involves chocolate and marshmallows, I can certainly get on board…and just wait until you see this clever twist on a classic summer treat.
There are few things better than s’mores in the summer, but s’mores donuts take it to an entirely different level altogether. Before you get started on this delectable recipe, there are a few things that you need to know:
First, use stale donuts for these s’mores. A stale donut is firmer and therefore will be easier to place on and off of the grill. Second, make sure you buy the jumbo marshmallows. Jumbo marshmallows will melt into the perfect size for your s’mores donut.
You will need:
– 1 stale, glazed donut
– 2 squares of chocolate candy
– 1 jumbo marshmallow
Preheat your grill.
Slice a stale, glazed donut in half length-wise so that you’re left with two halves (like a bagel). Set aside. Prepare a kabob skewer by adding one jumbo marshmallow. Roast your marshmallow over your grill to desired doneness (I like mine crispy and extra gooey). When your marshmallow starts to crisp, add your 2 donuts to the grill, cut side down for 30 seconds to 1 minute. *Note: it’s very important that you grill the donut cut side down because sugar from the glaze will burn easily and will not hold together.
Remove your donut halves, add chocolate to one half along with the toasted marshmallow. Top with other donut half. Enjoy!
