Sfenj Moroccan Doughnuts
Sfenj Moroccan Doughnuts are a Moroccan Jewish delicacy made of unsweetened and fluffy dough. Once it has risen, handfuls of dough are shaped into rings and deep-fried until golden. Moroccan Sfenj should certainly be crispy from the outside with a chewy, fluffy interior.
These little Moroccan delights are not only served just on Hanukkah but year-round, making the perfect Sunday morning treat. So please go ahead and celebrate your Hanukkah with a Moroccan twist and make a luscious batch of sfenj!
