8 Nights of Chanukah Doughnuts (Sufiganiyot)

Sufganiyot or doughnuts have become a Chanukah staple. While the classic is a jelly filled doughnut there are many different types of fillings you can put in.

In Israel, caramel filling is also a classic (yum!) and bakeries outdo themselves with creative and delicious fillings for their doughnuts.

If you live in Israel Chanukah is a great time to do a “doughnut crawl” and go to each bakery and try a doughnut. It will NOT be frugal or healthy but it will be delicious! Since the more creative and fancy the doughnut is, the more expensive it is we poor folk have to content ourselves with homemade doughnuts.


Without further ado….

What about the classic Jelly ones?!?!


I usually make this recipe from Bon Appetit and then just fill them with Jelly. I like that they are not too big so you get a good jelly/doughnut ratio. There is no fun in having too much doughnut to jelly! The chocolate dipping sauce is delicious as well!
