Hanukkah is also known as the festive of light, something like Diwali Festival. And during the celebration, they usually served donuts filled with sweet jam & Latkes. And Dewi @ Elra's Baking has tempted me make these magnificent donuts when she posted the sweet jam filled donuts on her FB the other day. Happy Hanukkah to you & your family, Kak Dewi ! As she mentioned it, she used overnight brioche dough to make her donuts. So, I'm going to try mine with some overnight brioche dough as well. The out come is overwhelming. Love the soft eggy dough so much and it smells great too !
