Sufganiyot

I blogged earlier about the first night of Hanukkah and why our family celebrates this glorious holiday. But I didn’t mention the sufganiyot.

Hanukkah celebrations typically involve foods fried in oil, symbolic of the miracle of the oil for the temple menorah. Traditional foods include latkes (potatoes pancakes) and sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts). I’m not a big fan of latkes, but I do thoroughly enjoy sufganiyot, so Mom and I made up a batch for the first night of Hanukkah.

Forgetting how well our stainless steel pans heat, and having a candy thermometer that’s a bit off, the oil ended up a bit too hot and the doughnuts started turning real dark before they got cooked all the way through. All-in-all, not our most successful batch of sufganiyot, but it was still fun to make and most of them were good after we turned down the burner and fried ’em a second time. 😀 I thought y’all might enjoy seeing a photo or two.

So, without further ado, our sufganiyot  . . .
