The Perfect Jelly Doughnut

20091211-jellydonut4.jpg

With Hanukkah starting tonight, it's time to talk jelly doughnuts. The Jewish holiday is all about fried foods since the oil symbolizes the miracle of the Temple oil that burned for eight nights. But unfortunately, jelly doughnuts can get eclipsed by the latke—maybe because they usually suck.

They seem great in theory but are often a tasteless wad of dough filled with stop sign red slime. But the half-Jewish side of me squealed when I found this perfect jelly doughnut at Almondine bakery in Brooklyn.

After the jump, a little spin on the jelly doughnut. Hint: bunnies are involved.

Told ya it was worth clicking! Can you guess the artistic genius behind this?

What's your idea of a perfect jelly doughnut?
