Serious Eats: Recipes
After a filling Hannukah meal, no matter how much I've eaten, I always want some dessert at the end. Sadly, I never took to sufganyot, the Sephardic jelly-filled doughnuts traditionally served during the holiday, but I've always, always had a soft spot for homemade doughnuts, especially the apple cider kind.
These are a perfect ending to a late fall celebratory meal. Served warm, the cake donuts are delightfully festive, softly scented with reduced apple cider and dusted with sparkling cinnamon sugar. And if you feel like a whole doughnut will put you over the edge, there's always a doughnut hole waiting.
