Baked or fried and glazed or filled, doughnuts are a Chanukah tradition and a favorite of probably everybody!  It's easy to pick up doughnuts from your local kosher market, or at Winn-Dixie if you're lucky enough to live by one! Or you can try your hand at frying or baking your own at home, leaving you with the freedom to adjust them to your taste.

Chanukah Donuts

You can’t go wrong with Sufganiyot, especially the classic jelly doughnut.  You can mix things up by filling the doughnuts with different jams that you find at your local supermarket and Winn Dixie, or make Whole Wheat Sufganiyot.  You can also try baking your doughnuts, I can’t admit to having tried this, but save some calories with Baked Jelly Doughnuts and Baked Mini Doughnuts.

Peanut Chew Doughnut

If you’re looking for even more of a treat, try Baked Molasses Doughnuts with Peanut Chews Filling or Pumpkin Doughnuts with Cinnamon Maple Glaze.  Both take the treat factor to the next level, but can be made without a trip to the gourmet shop.


For a fancy presentation, any of these doughnuts are a choice pick.  The Pistachio Apple Cake Doughnuts with a Cherry Jus, Zeppoles and Beignets make for elegant small bites for dessert, while the Cinnamon Sugar Churros and Sugar Sugar Doughnuts are a fun and refined treat for adults and kids alike.
