Last night was the first candle lighting for Hannukah, so of course we lit candles and sang songs, but the most important part of the Hannukah tradition is Sufganiot - jelly doughnuts!

Naturally, I make my own. From organic, whole flour, biodynamic butter, unrefined sugar and raw milk of course ;)

Littletree and I had lots of fun making them;

First make the dough, let it rise and then roll it out:

Then put jam in the middle (we did half with raspberry jam and half with nutella)

30 sufganiot jam

Stick two halves together and shape them

Then let them rise, and finally; cook them!

Sequoia was playing when I finished cooking them all, and check out the look on her face when I called her over to see the finished product:

Of course, Littletree had the most important job of all; taste testing!

She couldn't give a final verdict, since her mouth was so full ;)
