Sufganiyot (Doughnuts)

Sufganiot (Donuts)

Directions

In a large bowl, place flour, yogurt, vanilla sugar and eggs. Knead until all ingredients are combined and a sticky, doughy batter is formed. Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.

Heat 6 cups canola oil in a 6-quart stockpot, covered, over medium heat. When dough is ready, uncover oil and raise heat to high. 

Drop batter in oil, one tablespoon at a time, frying up to seven doughnuts at the same time. Using a slotted spoon, turn doughnuts over when halfway browned, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Fry for another 2-3 minutes or until entire doughnut is deep golden brown and cooked through. 

Remove doughnuts and let cool on paper towel-lined plates.  Repeat with remaining batter.  Fill a squeeze bottle with jelly and inject a little into each.  Roll each doughnut in confectioner’s sugar and serve.
