Shortcut Air Fryer Sufganiyot Recipe

Shortcut Air Fryer Sufganiyot Recipe
Even though fried foods are traditionally eaten at Hanukkah, those fried foods don’t need to be swimming in oil. That’s why these Shortcut Air Fryer Sufganiyot (SOOF-gone-ee-OAT), which are donuts traditionally served at Hanukkah, are so easy and can be made in just a few minutes in the air fryer. No need to get out the deep fryer and your house won’t smell like stale oil. Believe it or not, these easy sufganiyot are delicious, and even those who aren’t celebrating Hanukkah will show up to eat them.
While the raspberry jam filling and powdered sugar is traditional, you can use any flavor of jam that you like. You can also glaze these with a light icing or chocolate; they are yummy any way you choose to do it.
