When it comes to making donuts, breaking out the ingredients can be half the battle. Gifting this Moroccan donut mix negates the giftee’s need to track down yeast and crack open (or even worse, buy) a bag of flour for their mandatory Hanukkah treats.
These donuts, famous throughout Israel, are rolled in orange sugar straight out of the oil for the sparkling sweetness to adhere. Sfinge are best enjoyed warm, and soon after making. To make the gift complete, include the instructions with the per-batch specifications on a handwritten card, which can then be attached to the jarred mix.
