Sufganiyot - Traditional Israeli Jelly Donuts for Chanukah

Introduction

(Please note that this calorie calculation does NOT include the oil necessary to fry the Sufganiyot. SORRY!) (Please note that this calorie calculation does NOT include the oil necessary to fry the Sufganiyot. SORRY!)
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 package dry yeast
    4 tbs sugar
    3/4 cup lukewarm water
    2-1/2 cups flour
    pinch of salt
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    2 egg yolks
    2 tbs margarine, softened
    3 tbs strawberry preserves

    oil for frying
    extra sugar for dipping

    Note: these are extra-delicious if you use milk and butter instead of water and margarine. Calories were calculated with water and margarine.

Directions

Mix yeast, 2 tbs sugar and water. Allow to sit until yeast bubbles.

Combine flour with remaining sugar, salt, cinnamon, and egg yolks and the yeast mixture. Knead until it forms a ball. Add margarine. Knead until well combined. Cover with a towel and allow to rise 30 - 60 minutes, until about doubled.

(note: if preferred, it may be allowed to rise overnight in the refrigerator)

Roll out dough to about 1/8 inch.

Cut into 24 rounds, about 2 inches in diameter ( a biscuit cutter works well). Place 1/2 tsp jelly in center of each of 12 rounds. Moisten edge with water; top with second round. Crimp tightly.

Allow to rise again, about 30 minutes.

Heat 2 inches of oil to about 375. Drop sufganiyot in, a few at a time, cook until browned on one side, flip over, and cook the second side.

Remove from oil, drain on paper towels, and roll in sugar.

If the oil is very hot they do NOT absorb a lot.

VERY yummy!

Chag Sameach!
