Aren’t you proud I didn’t say retards?
Because usually I like custard donuts. But the genre of donut dough that are used for sufguniyois quite frankly do taste best with jelly.
Also, the credited way to eat a donut with filling is to start from the track marks (the injection site).November 29, 2013 1:29 am at 1:29 am #1004521
Morons are the ones who put jelly in my sufganiyot.November 29, 2013 1:33 am at 1:33 am #1004522🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
only caramel belongs in a sufganiya. And not caramel flavored custard either.November 29, 2013 1:33 am at 1:33 am #1004523
I beg to differ. Have a hot caramel donut from Pizza Uri in Beis Yisrael.November 29, 2013 1:35 am at 1:35 am #1004524🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
LAB – that was the very sufganiyot I had in mind! YUM!November 29, 2013 1:38 am at 1:38 am #1004525
I was disappointed by the Pizza Uri donuts when I was in Israel. I got like a pea sized amount of caramel in mine.
but I must say, that pea size was good.November 29, 2013 1:40 am at 1:40 am #1004526
Syag – Just had one last week in-store. Hot caramel was dripping down my fingers, mmm mmm mmm.
I was actually there with a friend who asked the guy behind the counter if they had any *gasp* jelly donuts. The guy gave us a dirty look and muttered, “Sufganiyot Uri? Riva? …”November 29, 2013 2:15 am at 2:15 am #1004527
It is most efficient to use one type of dough and many fillings.November 29, 2013 4:15 am at 4:15 am #1004528
Never had a caramel donut, but Boston Creme is my favorite. I will not turn my nose up at a jelly donut, either.November 29, 2013 4:22 am at 4:22 am #1004529

Morons who put stuff besides jelly in sufganiyot are the same morons who put stuff besides potato or kasha in knishes.
Of course, people who call them “sufganiyois” are also morons, since there is no such word.

I was under the impression that there are two or three pizza uri’s…like a chain store.
Never tried one, it sounds worth it for me to go in over Chanuka…..its that good?November 29, 2013 12:00 pm at 12:00 pm #1004534
You must make your own decisions in life, my child. I have found over the years that it is not right to rely only on the advice of others. May you be blessed with self-confidence and happiness.November 29, 2013 12:08 pm at 12:08 pm #1004535
It’s that good. Go to the one on Beis Yisrael, I’m not sure if the one on Malchei Yisrael has donuts.November 29, 2013 1:12 pm at 1:12 pm #1004536Shopping613 🌠Participant
Rebydid, about food? Im not making a life desicion, I just said Id try something new. Maybe that is a skill YOU have yet to learn.November 29, 2013 2:09 pm at 2:09 pm #1004537

What would be the Yiddish word for jelly donuts? Latkes in Hebrew ar levivot, but we call them latkes. Is there a Yiddish equivalent for the donuts?November 29, 2013 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #1004538

I call sufganiyot, donuts and latkes, latkes. but that’s because calling it a potato pancake just sounds pathetic.November 30, 2013 10:41 pm at 10:41 pm #1004543Bookworm120Participant
In honor of the Doctor Who 5oth Anniversary, I wanted to put custard in my donuts, but I ended up just chickening out and using jelly instead. Oh, well. But it’s the thought that counts – I’m proud to be a moron. 😛
“Proud morons, keep on gobbling. Gobbling, gobbling, gobbling down the donuts.”
That’s my anthem.December 1, 2013 12:37 am at 12:37 am #1004544Torah613TorahParticipant
I was skeptical of the OP, since I really like custard donuts.
But today, I ate custard sufganiyot and jelly sufganiyot, and Popa is right. The jelly ones really do taste better as sufganiyot than they do as donuts.December 1, 2013 12:44 am at 12:44 am #1004545NechomahParticipant
Shopping, as far as I know, the only Pizza Uri is in Geulah, on Malchei Yisroel. Maybe they’ve opened up other branches in main chareidi neighborhoods, but that is the place I know of. The answer about whether it’s good enough to go special during Channuakah is that they don’t carry these things any time other than during Channukah (unlike all the bakeries that start selling sufganiyot on Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan and immediately stop the day after Channukah), so you can only try them during this week. If you have a few hundred (or maybe thousand, I’m not sure) calories to spare, then it would be worth it to try. I am still partial to American doughnuts (either plain or jelly) or to custard-filled eclairs, so the jelly sufganiyot never really appealed to me, but these with the caramel are different and yummy, so they really don’t have an American counterpart for me to compare one-on-one. Just yummy in their own right. Happy Channukah!December 1, 2013 1:00 am at 1:00 am #1004546Josh31Participant
No problem as long as you do not intend to be Yotzeh the obligation of sufguniyois with them.

I had two DD custard donuts yesterday.
If I every wanted to convince my sundry relatives that I’m reasonably grown-up and mature, the sight of me trying to cram the blob of custard into my mouth before it fell on my skirt probably destroyed that one on the ground.December 3, 2013 4:31 am at 4:31 am #1004554Hunger games fanMember
Sufguniyot and doughnuts aren’t the same thing. In the stores the sufganiyot are a dollar more and are fried in oil. Sufganiyot are more oily than regular doughnuts.December 3, 2013 5:30 am at 5:30 am #1004555Josh31Participant
The problem with other ingredients is that they may be “Mevatel” the essential ingredients, or they may create a Chatzitza (interposition) between the mouth and the sufganiyos, or they may it hard to eat a Kezais in the required time.
We need a comprehensive Artscroll sefer that will deal with all these details, with good Mar-eh Mekomos (sources listed) and several Haskamos (approval letters) from recognized authorities.

I empathize with your struggle! I had a hard time looking anything less than a drunken slob trying to eat a simple jelly donut this morning. I bit into my donut, and out popped the jelly from the side of my mouth all over my clean white shirt (worn l’kovod Rosh Chodesh).
I think I’ll stick to my latkes ‘n beer.December 4, 2013 10:42 pm at 10:42 pm #1004557GoldaMember
This skews my entire world view! I always thought jelly doughnuts were sufguniyoit and all other fillings were less yummy sufganiyoit! Madness!February 20, 2014 5:59 am at 5:59 am #1004558
Wrong. Jelly doughnuts are jelly donuts, and the rest can only be spelled one way.February 20, 2014 1:54 pm at 1:54 pm #1004559
Purim is coming, NOT Chanukah! You meant Hamantashen, right? And personally, I am opposed to anything in hamantashen but prune lekvar mixed with lemon juice, finely chopped walnuts and allspice. Or mohn. No jelly.February 20, 2014 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #1004560popa_bar_abbaParticipant
eeeeew, ooomis I am never eating your hamentashen. how could you possibly suggest putting that awful stuff inside.

Golfer, you are turning my head!!!!!! Amein to that beautiful bracha. Halevai.
Popa – you should BE so lucky to eat my hamantashen!!! They are scrumptious. I take no credit. My mom O”H got me started on the right road to Purim baking. I have had many, many different types of hamantashen over the last 60+ years, all of them very tasty. But not a single one has ever been as well-received and delicious as hers. Not for my family, anyway.
