Custard-Filled Polish Paczki


Dive into the delightful world of Pączki, Poland's answer to the doughnut! These deep-fried delights, stuffed with creamy fillings or sweet jellies, become the star of the show during Poland's Pączki Day, coinciding with Fat Tuesday. This pre-Lenten tradition has been embraced by Polish communities in US cities, with places like Hamtramck, MI even hosting a Pączki Day parade.

Yearning to partake in this delicious tradition? We've got a fail-proof Pączki recipe for you. A little insider tip: using grain alcohol in the batter can help reduce oil absorption. While our version is packed with a luscious custard, you can swap that out for your choice of jam.


For the Pączki:

1 1/2 cups plus 1/4 cup flour (divided)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons yeast (either instant or regular)
2/3 cup milk, warmed (120F for instant or 110F for regular yeast)
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 egg yolks
