We all love more dessert recipes and our friends in Montreal really know how to do them right. We showcased the Montreal Hebrew Academy Cookbook, And Then There Was Cake and shared a few recipes last month. Now, we get to sample a few more special for Hanukkah.
Light, flaky layers of phyllo dough oozing with warm chocolate, this dessert is somewhat reminiscent of baklava and its sweet almond filling. These cigars are playful and definitely outside the box - think of them as upscale finger food. For a hot and cold combination, serve just out of the oven with vanilla ice cream.
The mere thought of these doughnuts is enough to spark giddy, mouth-watering excitement. Sugar flying in the air, the smell of dough frying in oil, even the flipping manoeuvre - it’s all great fun! Doughnuts are one of those foods that have the power to lure - who can refuse an invitation to have a warm doughnut or five, especially around Chanukah? This yeast-based version is light and airy and the effort you will invest in working the dough is all worth it. We dare you to have just one!
We hope you enjoy these recipes and have a Happy Hanukkah. For a last minute gift idea consider our cookbook, And Then There Was Cake from the Hebrew Academy of Montreal. Copies can be ordered at HA-Cookbook.com or by calling 514-489-5321.
