There is a tradition to eat foods fried in oil on Chanukah in commemoration of the miracle of the oil lamp, and there is also a tradition to eat dairy foods in honor of Judith, who put an enemy general to sleep by feeding him cheeses that made him thirsty and then plying him with wine; once he was asleep, she killed him. Why not combine the two customs with this dairy doughnut?
