Sufganiyot from Israel

Eating Sufganiyot from Israel


The word sufganiyot, a modern Hebrew word, comes from the greek sufgan, meaning "puffed and fried." Every bakery in Jerusalem, no matter the ethnic origin of the baker, makes these jelly doughnuts for Hanukkah. They used to consist of two rounds of dough sandwiching some jam, and the jam always ran out during the frying. Today, with new injectors on the market, balls of dough can be deep-fried first and then injected with jam before being rolled in sugar. This is a much easier, quicker way of doing them. And no jam escapes. Source

Sufganiyot can be made with OSO-ONO Fried Dessert Dough.
