Sufganiyot (Doughnuts)

Sufganiyot (Doughnuts)

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.

Matzah Ball Soup

Matzah balls are more traditionally known as knaydelach (Yiddish for dumplings). Matzah ball soup is generally a very thin chicken broth with two or three ping-pong-ball sized matzah balls (or sometimes one very large matzah ball) in it. Sometimes, a few large pieces of carrot or celery are added. Matzah balls can be very soft and light or firm and heavy -- sometimes the two types are referred to as "floaters and sinkers." Matzah ball soup is a staple at all Jewish holidays.
