What is the significance of doughnuts in Hanukkah celebrations?

Doughnuts, known as sufganiyot, are significant during Hanukkah as they are fried in oil, symbolizing the miracle of the Hanukkah oil that lasted for eight nights instead of one.

How did jelly doughnuts become a Hanukkah tradition?
Jelly doughnuts became tied to Hanukkah in the Middle Ages. The tradition specifically strengthened in Israel during the 1920s when the Israeli Labor Federation declared them the official food of Hanukkah, providing employment opportunities through their production and sale​.
What are the most popular fillings for Hanukkah doughnuts?

While traditionally filled with jelly, modern sufganiyot are also stuffed with various fillings such as cream, halvah, or chocolate ganache. Some innovative recipes even include peanut butter or Nutella.

What is the difference between sufganiyot and other doughnuts?

Sufganiyot are typically round, similar to a cross between a beignet and a jelly doughnut. Unlike other Western doughnuts, they usually don’t have a hole and are filled with sweet fillings like jelly or custard.
