Hanukkah Dinner Recipes That the Whole Family Will Love
Give family and friends the greatest gift of all at your holiday celebration: an assortment of beloved Hanukkah recipes, including latkes, brisket, kugel, and more.
When Sarah Carey, our editorial director of food and entertaining, was a kid, holiday visits to her grandparents' house often included her grandma's sweet-and-sour version of classic beef brisket. She recreated it from memory, one bite at a time, using three key ingredients: Chili sauce, brown sugar, and vinegar.
Celebrate the Festival of Lights with These Heavenly Hanukkah Desserts
Rugelach, donuts, and cookies—oh, my! Find delicious recipes that end your Hanukkah festivities the traditional way or with a sweet twist.
Hanukkah Sufganiyot (Jelly Doughnuts)
These deep-fried Israeli delicacies symbolize the miracle of the burning oil lamps in the ancient Holy Temple in Jerusalem celebrated during Hanukkah. Plump up each doughnut with your favorite fruit jam. For a wintry effect, sprinkle the tops with granulated sugar.
Our Jewish-Deli strata features garnishes like capers, red onion, and lemon add freshness to this bagels-and-lox-inspired strata.
Apple Skillet Cake
This treat is heavy on apples and light on batter, so it's more like a thin German pancake than a dense cake.
Best served warm, these fragrant, golden Apple Fritters are by turns tender, crisp, and fruity. A simpler (no-yeast) alternative to sufganiyot—the traditional jam-filled Jewish doughnut served during Hanukkah—the fritters are studded with diced sweet apples and generously dusted with confectioners' sugar. Be forewarned: They can be addictively delicious. Martha made this recipe on Martha Bakes episode 602.
