Sufganiot… The name supposedly comes from their capacity to absorb whatever amount of cooking oil we push on them (Lispog in Hebrew means to sponge). In our household we called them Ponchikes, and I recall the first time I asked for a ponchike and no one in the room had any idea what I was saying.

These guys are exceptionally sinful looking – or festive, depending on your goal weight. They’re on sake in a shop in Jerusalem. The photographer, Mendy Hechtman, from the Flash90 service, didn’t disclose the location.
