Sufganiyot: Traditional and Modernishe Baked

December 15, 2011

So are baked sufganiyot just as good as fried? Just for you, dear readers, I tried both side by side to see.

Baked Sufganiyot

The short answer is yes. The inside tastes pretty much the same. The crust is not at all the same, but, with enough powdered sugar it doesn’t really matter so much.

The appearance of baked and fried is different, too, but that becomes secondary when you put enough powdered sugar or glaze on top. My kids can’t tell the difference. My husband likes the baked version a little better because it has all the flavor and none of the grease.
