Difference between a doughnut and Sufganiyah[edit]

Is there any other difference between a doughtnut (donut) and a Sufganiyah, besides the name? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.98.24.64 (talk) 14:42, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

why isn't anybody answering ?Grimmjow E6 (talk) 05:25, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Well they're not like western/American doughnuts thank goodness, but looking at the article on Pączki they're basically similar to those in all but name (although also known as the derivative פּאָנטשקעס, pontshkes). That article suggest Sufganiyot is just a modern name for them. Hakluyt bean (talk) 16:45, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
To put it more graphically, an American doughnut is ring-shaped -- fried ring of dough with a hole in the center. The Israeli/Jewish sufganiya is ball-shaped -- a fried ball of yeast dough, generally with a jam filling. From personal experience I can say that the basic taste of the dough (ignoring the jam filling) is also quite different. --Zlerman (talk) 17:01, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Jelly Donuts or any filled donut in the U.S. are not ring shaped. Only frosted and plain donuts are ring shaped. So, I too would like to know if there is a difference between a sufganiyah and a jelly donut. My bet is that they are the same. 69.122.122.147 (talk) 07:00, 2 December 2010 (UTC)AR
I think it depends on the sufganiyah, as many are not with jelly these days and don't need to be to be a sufganiyah. And there is no doubt the difference of lard, which I understand some baked goods are made with (not sufganiyot obviously). But, yes, I would say that, aside from those things, and leaving aside how they are prepared, some of the differences you are eager to find are similar to the differences betwen a jelly doughnut and a Berliner. Or between a Berliner and a pontshke. Or between a pontshke and a paczke. Or between a paczke and a Berliner. And so on. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.67.101.224 (talk) 22:29, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Hebrew plural[edit]

Shouldn't the hebrew plural be סופגניות rather than סופגנייות? See e.g. the hebrew version of this article.
