Donut Worry, Sufganiyot Are Here!

In high school growing up, one of my closest friends was Israeli. During Hanukkah, she invited my family over to her house to try her mom’s home-made sufganiyot. They were like nothing I’d ever had before — soft, fluffy and ever-so-sweet, with a dusting of powdered sugar as they came out of the frying pan.

Unfortunately, most of us don’t have an Israeli mother around to whip up a batch of these sugary treats. If you have a sweet tooth like me, and are looking to indulge this Hanukkah season, here’s a few places around the Twin Cities where you can fill the void (even if they’ll never compare to homemade):

Crossroads Delicatessen: Now through the rest of Hanukkah, Crossroads Delicatessen in Minnetonka will be serving sufganiyot. And bonus, they’re Kosher, too!

Glam Doll Donuts: The specialty donut shop will be whipping up their own version of the jelly-filled donuts this holiday season. Call ahead or stop by either of their 2 locations to get your hands on one.

The Kosher Spot: In addition to Hanukkah cookies, decorations and other festive seasonal selections, The Kosher Spot will, indeed, be selling sufganiyot as well.

Bogart’s Doughnut Co. : Now through Dec. 20, Bogart’s will be selling sufganiyot using their signature brioche dough, filled with a house-made triple berry jelly. Yum! Pre-order for larger orders online or stop by their Uptown or Downtown locations.
