While latkes are the snack most commonly associated with Hanukkah, sufganiyot are more commonly consumed in Israel. We can see why, because they are addictive and don’t leave the house as smelly.
Special equipment: You will need a 2-inch round cutter. If you don’t have one, you can use a drinking glass of the same size.
You will also need a candy/fat thermometer, as well as a 12- to 18-inch pastry bag fitted with a 1/4-inch round tip to fill the donuts with jam or jelly.
Game plan: When deep-frying, make sure the oil stays at a constant temperature, adjusting your stove’s heat as necessary.
