Polish Pączki is one of my daughter’s favourite recipes. She looks forward to making them every year. This recipe is easy and absolutely delicious.
Each year my daughter gets really excited as Fat Tuesday approaches. So when Sunday Supper announced the theme for this week would be Fat Sunday I knew we needed to make Polish Pączki. Mini-me was beyond thrilled. Timing was difficult as she’s in university and works, so she’s super busy. So these were made at around midnight on Saturday night, mere hours before the post was due. I knew it was the only time we could make them together so I did the prep for the dough during the day. That ensured we could make the Polish Pączki together before bed.
If you have never made these I’ll warn you they are a tad step heavy. You need to make dough with yeast, allow it to rise, punch it down, allow it to rise again, then roll it out, cut it into spheres, then allow those to rise. So by the time you get to the filling stage it’s been hours of prep. Most of that is inactive though so it’s not difficult, it’s just a lot of steps to get from point A to point B, C, D and E. Totally worth it though. If you think store-bought Polish Pączki are phenomenal wait till you try homemade. These bad boys are going to blow your mind.
