Sufganyot (jelly doughnuts) recipe

Here is the recipe for the delicious sufganyot that Jolene and Boris made at the Hanukkah party:

(10 Servings)


  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 (7.5 ounce) package refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, separated
  • 3/4 cup seedless strawberry jam
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar


  1. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees F. Fry biscuits, a few at a time, for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert a very small tip. Fill bag with jam. Push the tip through the side of each doughnut to fill with jam. Dust with confectioners' sugar while warm. Serve immediately.

Had a great time at the Hanukkah party tonight. SO great seeing everyone there! Thank you Jolene for organizing it!  I will upload pictures tomorrow, but while I was thinking about, I wanted to get my kugel recipe up here... (Glad you all enjoyed it :) )

Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and stir in 6 tablespoons sliced butter.
