Cakes usually connected with Christmas nowadays
found on tine.no
Doughnuts are one of the seven sorts of Christmas cakes for many Norwegians. The rest of us scarf them down whenever we can lay our hands on them because traditionally these delicious deep fried cakes were something Norwegians made throughout the year. In recent times though most of us connect doughnuts with Christmas and Christmas baking.
TIP: Dip a wooden stick into the pan to check whether the lard is hot enough. If bubbles form around the stick, you can start frying.
