Chanukah! Day 5

5th night, 5th candle more fattening foods, fried to perfection.  And I'm not going to let you go back on your diet.  This time a perfect recipe for:

Sufganiyot (Doughnuts) 

From Chabad

A well-known bakery in Jerusalem produces over 200,000 of these each day during the month leading up to Chanukah.
2 packages yeast
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup orange juice
1/3 cup margarine
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 or 5 cups. flour
3 egg yolks

Jelly of your choice for filling
Powdered Sugar

Mix water, sugar, juice, and yeast. Let stand 10 minutes. Melt margarine and add to yeast mixture. Beat in eggs and salt. Add flour, mixing and kneading by hand to form a soft dough. Let rise 1-1/2 hours. Roll dough 1/4 inch thick and cut circles (approximately 2 inches). Let circles rise 1/2 hour.

Deep fry at 400° F about 3 minutes, turning once. Pipe in jelly and roll in powdered sugar.
Don't they look wonderful! You can almost smell them.  Such an aroma, such a flavor.  Isn't your mouth watering?  Ain't I a stinker?  Go out and get a few.

Ohhhh, those look yummy. I'm betting the orange juice gives them an extra special sweet taste. Can't wait to try them.
