- Today I'm gonna show you how to make these super easy jelly donuts that are a traditional Hanukkah dish but can be made any time of the year. Let's get started. So we're gonna start with our donut batter, so first we're going to mix our wet ingredients. I've got an egg, and some milk. We're just gonna whisk those together gently to combine. All right, and now that that's together, we're going to combine our dry ingredients and then add our wet ingredients into our dry ingredients. All right. So for our dry ingredients we've got flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. So I'm just gonna give those a little bit of a mix, and let's add our wet ingredients. So just pour that in there. And we're gonna stir to combine. Got oil heating over here to fry our donuts. All right, butter in. All right, our batter is ready to go. Okay, so we're gonna use an ice cream scoop to form our donut holes, and we're doing them pretty rustically so you don't have to worry about the shape too much, just give it a nice scoop and then carefully place it into the oil. And they are gonna puff up a bit, so we don't wanna overcrowd our pot. So just a few at a time. All right now as you can see they're gettin' golden pretty quick, so we'll just give 'em a little flip as they cook. All right, so I've got my tray here set up with a rack for them to drain on. You can also set up a plate with some paper towels, that works too. So we've got our donuts fried, we're now gonna let them cool just a little bit so that we can handle them and pipe them full of jelly. I'm gonna grab that out of the fridge and then we're gonna get piping. All right, so I've put my jam into a piping bag already, ready to go. So we're just gonna set this aside for a second while we hollow out our donuts. So I've got another tip for a piping bag, and it's pretty wide at the tip 'cause what we're gonna do is we're gonna go in and just sorta scoop out the center, make ourselves a little hole. So, carefully, we're just gonna stick the piping tip into the hole, and we're just gonna finish these off with some powdered sugar. So I've just got a little sifter. So here you have sufganiyot, an easy spin on a traditional Hanukkah dish that can enjoyed any time.
