This incredibly fun and delicious Hanukkah recipe celebrates Hanukkah in the perfect way! Hanukkah reminds us to reflect on the miracle of oil, and making homemade doughnuts no doubt gives us a chance to be thankful for all of the magical things oil can do!

Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik crafted this tasty Hanukkah recipe found in her book, Mayim's Vegan Table. Although this recipe is a bit labor intensive, there is no better way to veganize this Jewish holiday and impress your family than with jelly-filled doughnuts! 

Olive Oil Orange Cake

Did you know that you can use olive oil for desserts too?

This is not your typical fruit cake ... it's better! Who knew that combining these ingredients could produce such a burst of flavor? There is something sublime about the combination of orange cake and olive oil. The cake is moist and rich, while citrus gives it a wonderful fresh aroma!

Mini Almond Poundcakes

These cakes are just lovely and darling. The crumb is somehow both dense and fluffy. The edges are crispy and sweet. And the almond flavor is simply divine!
You can make a cute little bite-sized dessert out of these, that might be perfect for spring holiday snacking. Slice a few of the loaves 1/4 inch thick, and top with a dollop of vegan cream and a sliced strawberry. Now you’ve got a great little sweet that’s easy to grab.
This recipe is another delicious creation of Jewish Veg supporter Isa Chandra Moskowitz and her Post Punk Kitchen
