Last night my husband says to me: ‘ Don’t you feel like making my mom’s doughnut’s?’ I was a little confused to annoyed because we all know that making doughnuts isn’t just done within 5 minutes.
Papa Madola seems to just always been handed over the ready made doughnuts without seeing the effort that goes into it. But this time around I made sure he saw what goes into it 🙂
I organised the recipe from my mother-in-law (she makes the best doughnuts by far), and started making the dough early this morning before breakfast.

After breakfast I cut out the doughnuts and left them to rise. In the meantime I organised the frying-oil and the icing to make sure I am prepared when they have risen and then cooled down and ready to be iced.

And being back in Germany we are joining the german traditions like Adventszeit with our jewish traditions. In Cape Town I found the Adventszeit was never a big deal. The mood and feeling never came up due to the warmth and sun in November, December and I didn’t ever really bother to start the mood of baking, candles and warm soup.

But now that we are in Berlin and it’s so nice and cold, the Christmas-Markets all around us, I have decided to join the two cultures. So today, we will have the doughnuts and light the Chanukka candles and we will also light the Adventskranz candles this afternoon.

Lets see how it pans out :-)*Hugs and Kisses*
