In a nod to a miracle that took place over 2,000 years ago, when a single night’s worth of oil burned for eight days, many foods eaten at Hanukkah are fried in oil. Potato latkes may be the most popular, but they aren’t the only fried treat associated with the festival of lights. Sufganiyot—jam-filled donuts topped with powdered sugar—are also a favorite, particularly for those with a sweet tooth. 

Here’s where you can find the tastiest jelly donuts in Montgomery County for your at-home Hanukkah celebration.  


Sunday Morning Bakehouse

The North Bethesda bakery and café is selling sufganiyot by the half dozen. Orders must be placed in advance and picked up on Friday, Dec. 11 or Saturday, Dec. 12. However, they’re considering continuing this special for all eight days of Hanukkah, so keep an eye out.
