sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts)photo-10


2 – 1/4 ounce envelopes dry yeast

1/4 cup warm water (105-115 degrees)

1-1/2 cups lukewarm milk or soymilk

3/4 cup sugar

1 tsp. salt

2 eggs

6 tbsp. shortening or margarine

5 cups flour

oil, for deep frying

1 (13-1/2 ounce) jar of strawberry, raspberry or other fruit jelly

confectioners sugar


1. sprinkle yeast over warm water and let stand five minutes or until foamy.

2. in a large bowl, mix together the yeast mixture, milk, sugar, salt, eggs, shortening and two cups of flour. Mix for a few minutes at low speed.

3. Beat in remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough no longer sticks to the bowl. Knead for about five minutes or until smooth and elastic.

4. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about an hour or a bit longer.

5. Heat 4 cups of oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 350 degrees. Carefully slide doughnuts into the hot oil using a wide spatula. Turn the doughnuts over as they rise to the surface. Doughnuts are ready when both sides are golden brown.

6. Fill with 1 tbsp. jelly using a pastry injector or by cutting a small slit in the side of the doughnut and inserting the jelly with a baby spoon.  Close tightly and roll in confectioners sugar.

yields: 40 doughnuts
