SUFGANIYOT


This is a holiday pastry enjoyed by those of the Jewish faith. It is basically a yeast-based jelly donut!

6 tbsp. non-dairy milk
6 tbsp. water
1/3 cup unsalted margarine, cut up
5 cups unsifted all purpose flour
2 envelopes active dry yeast
cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 large eggs
Vegetable oil for frying

Mix 2 cups of flour with the salt and yeast in a bowl.

Melt the margarine in a pot or bowl with the water and neo-milk (you can use regular milk, but it's not Kosher). Mix this liquid into the bowl of dry materials. Mix until smooth and start putting in the rest of the flour until it becomes a soft dough. Then transfer the mixture to a flowered bread board and knead the mixture until smooth and elastic adding just enough of the remaining flour to reach that stringy consistency.

Place into a greased or oiled bowl or pot, cover and allow it to rise for close to 2 hours in a warm area.

Put the dough back on the floured board again, beat and knead. Then cover with the bowl and let sit for not quite half an hour.

Cut the dough into two equal pieces. Flatten out on the board to 1/4" thickness. Cut out 3" squares or circles using a dough to cookie cutter (or large mouth glass). Put these on a greased baking sheet well spaced. Brush oil or margarine over the top of the doughnuts. Cover with plastic wrap and allow them to sit near a warm area for about an hour until the doughnuts rise to about twice their bulk.

Do the same with the remaining dough.

After they rise, put them into a deep fryer or a large pan with about 2" of oil and deep fry them. Remove and drain on toweling paper.

With the end of a butter knife put a slit into the doughnut and then force in jelly with a pastry bag or teaspoon.

Sprinkle with either granulated or powdered sugar (and if you like cinnamon) or you can glaze or put icing on them.
