Hanukkah is an eight day Jewish holiday that celebrates a miraculous a flame that burned for eight days. Because of this, many traditional Hanukkah foods are cooked in oil to represent the miracle of the light that burned in oil. Of course, the best fried food is a donut, whether you're opting for a cake or yeast version. For a lighter spin on these holiday treats, some of our donuts are baked as opposed to fried, which may seem counterintuitive to the holiday's symbols. However, we think it's the thought that counts, and there's nothing like a sweet, sugary donut to get you in the mood for the holiday season.
