Whether you spell it doughnut or donut, or whether you buy, make from scratch, or something in between, Hanukkah won’t pass without them landing on your table. There’s a perfect donut option for you below.
Raise your hand if you make homemade doughnuts? This may be the most polarizing question we’ve asked on BCP. You either will never ever make your own homemade doughnuts or you think there is nothing like homemade doughnuts and you can’t imagine not frying up a batch on Chanukah.
Well, lucky for those on both sides of this topic, we’ve posted so many doughnut recipes and hacks over the years. They include recipes which range from making the dough from scratch and frying, to semi-homemade options, to recipe that let you buy ready made doughnuts and doctor them up! (Think: You can turn a $1 donut, fill it up and top it at home, and make it look like those gourmet $8 doughnuts sold in specialty bakeries.)
Curious about which spelling of doughnut/donut is actually correct? Donut is a shortened version that became mainstream in the U.S. So, while doughnut is the originally spelling, donut is also accepted as correct.
Now, let’s get to it! Below is a roundup of our favorite doughnuts/fillings for you to pick which one you want to make this Chanukah.
