Chanukah is not Chanukah without donuts fried in oil. But no one wants to spend a lot of time on a complicated donut recipe when they would rather be spending time with their families, watching the menorah. This donut recipe is classic, easy to make, and if you can wait the short 45-minute rise time, come out picture-perfect and delicious.

Ingredients:

5 cups flour
1 ounce yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
pinch of salt
3 ounces margarine
3 egg yolks
1 and 3/4 cups water or juice

 

Prepare the Extra Easy Donuts

1. Dissolve yeast in water then combine the rest of the ingredients. Knead dough until smooth. Let rise 30 minutes.

2. Place dough on a well-floured board. Form into one and half inch balls and let rise another 15 minutes.

3. Heat two and half inch oil in a deep skillet. Deep fry in hot oil, turning once, until golden in color. Drain on absorbent paper.

4. Dust liberally with confectioners sugar.

Note: Slices of raw carrots in the oil will prevent oil from burning and allow doughnuts to fry at even pace.
