It's much easier to organize. I seem to spend hours making pancakes for this family.

Older posters on the forum will remember that I'm quite partial to doughnuts. And this time I will fight for them.

if any of you here in the states have a Kroger groceries near you, stop by there as they have pączki and they must be baked by poles or germans or something because they are pretty darn good. Kroger is from the germanish town of Cincinnati. :D

It's a dough nut (pączki) day tomorrow.

No, the paczki day was a month ago, not today! I remember the chef at work always makes some paczkis for everybody (or maybe they just buy'em?) :)

R u a chef, Shawn? Is the Paczki Day in the beginning of January or at the end? U should know that.

R u a chef,

No, just like making a mess in the kitchen.

Is the Paczki Day in the beginning of January or at the end

I am not Catholic either, but I believe it has to do with the Lenten Period. The idea is to get all the good stuff in (food, drink etc...) before you give it up for Lent. This is similar to Mardi Gras in Nawleens (New Orleans) and other places.

edit: addition of en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tlusty_czwartek

OK I got it. It looks like the Paczki Day is celebrated on Fat Tuesday or Fat Thursday (two different things) depending on the location: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paczki

In Chicago, Detroit, Hamtramck, Milwaukee, and South Bend Paczki Day is more commonly celebrated on Fat Tuesday instead of Fat Thursday.

That is interesting. I never knew that.

Here in Wisconsin the churches organize "ponchka dances". They had one this Saturday. There was a polka band playing and at 8:00pm they start serving pączki. Everything would be cool, exept those are the worst tasting pączki you could ever eat! TRhey buy them from a store and they don't know how to make them. They are undercooked with raw batter still inside then they stuff them with the cheapest, bitterest raspberyy or prune filling you could ever imagine. My daughter took one look and turned away. My 4 year old son took a bite then stuck his finger in the hole and the red raspberry juices started floated out and he tells me his finger is bleeding. He's such a little joker.

He gets that from me :)

There must be either something wrong with the recipe, or they are not stored properly. They shouldn't be really dry.

With hindsight doughnuts number five and six were a mistake: I now feel rather sick :(
