Will any standard kosher bakery carry them? Any specific place you care to share?

  1. I believe that Zomick's (Five Towns, NY) carries them.

    1. I'm sure that every Kosher bakery carries sufganiyot around Chanukah time. They are also fun to make fresh.

      1. Try
        B&B Bakery Bagels & Bakeries (Under the Queens Vaad)
        2845 Jerusalem Ave. - N.Bellmore, NY
        (516) 785-6900

        They are owned by an Israeli baker so their sufganiyot would be more likely to be "authentic."

          Why would an Israeli version be more authentic? Ponchkes are native to Polish and Russian Jews; they're no more Israeli than are "levivot".

        2. The QUeens Pita bakery people make excellent sufganiyot and wholesale them to many stores in manhattan and Queens. There is also a place in Far Rockaway and anotehr in Boro Park that produce enormous numbers for otehr bakeries. Most bakeries don't make their own because it requres a big deep fry that they cannot do much else with.

            I have never eaten the Queens Pita Bakery's sufganyot, but I can tell you that their baked goods in general, are very good.

          2. I work right near Chiffons Bakery, on coney Island Ave, between J and K, and every year I wait for their yummy Jelly Doughtnuts. They're so good, and just a warning: Wear a bib! They have a lot of jelly in them!
