Chanukah Doughnuts

These doughnuts are the perfect treat to use for your Chanukah parties. But be sure to have adult supervision when you are frying them, since the oil will get very hot.


  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 40 min
  • Ready Time : 1 hour




  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 cups flour
  • Lots of oil for frying
  • Confectioners’ sugar


Keep in mind that these doughnuts are dairy; use only dairy utensils while preparing them.

1 Before you begin, prepare a few sheets of (kosher) paper towels on a plate to drain the oil from the doughnuts.
2 Put the eggs, sugar, and salt into a large bowl and mix on medium speed.
3 Add the vanilla yogurt, baking powder and flour. Continue to mix until a thick batter forms.
4 In a large pot, heat the oil until it’s very hot (it should be almost bubbling).
5 Drop the batter onto the hot oil with a tablespoon. Use a second spoon to help you scoop the mixture off the tablespoon. Be very, very careful and make sure that you don’t put your hands near the hot oil.
6 Fry the doughnuts until they are crispy and golden on one side, and then turn them over onto the second side. Continue to fry until the second
side also looks golden. (A golden color would be a shiny brown, but don’t let them get too dark).
7 Remove the doughnuts carefully from the pot, and put them on the paper towels to drain the oil.
8 Allow the doughnuts to cool and sprinkle them with confectioners’ sugar.

TIP: put the confectioners’ sugar into a hand sifter and sprinkle it on top of the doughnuts.
