The mere thought of these doughnuts is enough to spark giddy, mouth-watering excitement. Sugar flying in the air, the smell of dough frying in oil, even the flipping manoeuvre - it’s all great fun! Doughnuts are one of those foods that have the power to lure - who can refuse an invitation to have a warm doughnut or five, especially around Chanukah? This yeast-based version is light and airy and the effort you will invest in working the dough is all worth it. We dare you to have just one!

Sufganiot (Jelly Doughnuts)

Classic Sufganiot

March 7th 2011By Jamie Geller

Uber-easy jelly-filled sufganiot (doughnuts) are ideal for Chanukah or anytime you get a craving. My sister-in-law Carly and I attempted this recipe one Chanukah night when the whole family came over for candle-lighting. Everyone got involved. Some of us were on deep-fry duty, some of us powdered and the rest "quality control" tasted. We all had a blast. There was flour and confectioners' sugar everywhere.

I love food that fakes you out, when my husband came home and I asked him to taste one of these donuts with dinner, he said, isn't that dessert? Once he got over the confusion, he tasted it and loved it, although he suggested it would be better for a brunch and I agree, it has a bagel with cream cheese flavor, but a different texture and much more fun for a party.

Cinnamon Sugar Churros


December 9th 2012By Jamie Geller

Originally a Portuguese dessert, some say the recipe originated during the Age of Exploration, when sailors brought the concept back from the Orient. Since the Chinese were not allowed to share recipes (punishable by death), the Portuguese improvised, and churros as we know them were born.
