HOMEMADE JELLY DOUGHNUTS {SUFGANIYOT}

Learn how to make easy homemade jelly doughnuts/ donuts (Sufganiyot) recipe from scratch, using simple ingredients. Detailed instructions and lots of tips included. 


INGREDIENTS
Doughnuts:
1/4 cup Water 100-110 degrees
4.5 tsp Dry yeast 2 packets (1/4 oz. each)
1.5 cup Milk Whole, 100-110 degrees
3/4 cup Granulated sugar
2 Eggs Large
2 tsp Vanilla extract
6 tbsp Butter Unsalted
5 cups All-purpose flour +Additional flour for kneading
Oil For frying

Filling:
3 cups Strawberry jam Homemade or store-bought

Toppings:
3 cups Granulated sugar For rolling the doughnuts
2 cups Coconut cream chocolate frosting
2 cups Strawberries Washed, Sliced, Patted dry

INSTRUCTIONS:
In a small bowl, add water and sprinkle yeast. Keep aside for about 10 minutes until it becomes foamy.
In another mixing bowl, add the yeast mixture, milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, butter and mix everything together.
Add flour gradually while mixing until the dough no longer sticks to the bowl. 
Dump the dough onto your floured countertop and start kneading until it's smooth and elastic (5-7 minutes). 
Place this dough in a greased bowl. Cover with saran wrap and keep it in a warm area until it doubles in size (1.5-2 hours).
Now, flour your countertop again and roll out the dough at a thickness of 1/2 inches. Use a round cutter to cut out circular pieces.
Cover these circles with saran wrap and allow them to rise again for about 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a large saucepan and gently, add 3-4 the circle pieces into the oil and fry them on both sides until they are golden (about 30-40 seconds on each side).
Use a slotted spoon to remove the doughnuts from the oil and place them on a tray lined with paper towels.
Then quickly roll the doughnuts in sugar while they are still warm.
Now, attach the round tip to a piping bag and fill it with strawberry jam.
On the side of the doughnut, make 2 holes with a wooden skewer about 1 inch apart. Push your piping bag into the holes and fill the inside of the doughnut with jam. Do this for all the doughnuts.

This is optional: When the doughnuts have cooled down, spread fudgy coconut cream chocolate frosting on top of them and place a few sliced strawberries on top. Enjoy!
