Sufganiyot, or jelly donuts, are a Chanukah staple. To symbolize the miracle of oil lasting for eight days instead of one, these donuts are fried in oil and filled with jelly. Making sufganiyot may seem daunting, but with some patience and careful planning, anyone can make these donuts!

If you do not like jelly in your donuts, you can use any other kind of filling. You can use custard, Nutella, caramel, or any other filling that you like. When you are done frying the donuts and they have cooled, you can make a hole on both sides of the donut for the filling. Then, you can use a piping bag or squeeze bottle to squeeze the filling into the donut. Good luck making your sufganiyot!
