Sufganiyot are deep fried jelly doughnuts that are covered in powdered sugar. The word Sufganiyot (or Sufganiyah for just one doughnut) comes from the Hebrew word for sponge. We assure you though, if you eat Sufganiyot on Hanukkah it will be more delicious than eating a sponge. A lot more delicious, which is why it's the No. 1 Hanukkah food on this list. Hanukkah Sameach, everyone!
