What is a Paczki?

A Paczki (pronounced “poonsh-kee”) is a deep-fried Polish doughnut that’s filled with jam or other sweet fillings. They are usually topped with powdered sugar and are said to be one of the most delicious treats ever enjoyed! Paczki were originally made to use the remaining ingredients not allowed during Lent, such as lard, eggs, fruits, and sugar. The dough is usually prepared with butter, yet in order to consume the lard prior to the start of Lent, it was traditionally fried in lard.

What Does Paczki Taste Like?

A paczki is a very dense pastry that is on the eggy side with spice notes of nutmeg and cinnamon with a healthy bite of the filling flavor that you choose.

What is Fat Tuesday?

Fat Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday and marks the beginning of Lent in some Christian denominations. It’s also known as Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras. On this day, it’s traditional to eat richer foods such as paczkis (Polish doughnuts) and indulge before the period of fasting. Each year, Yummies Donuts and BBQ brings this Polish tradition to Venice with its own unique flair. The bakery offers a variety of paczki, each filled with deliciously sweet surprises, from classic fruit jams to rich creams.

What is the Difference Between Paczki and Donuts?

Paczki and donuts differ in terms of the components of the dough. Paczki dough contains more enriching components, such as yeast, grain alcohol, and high-gluten flour. This combination yields a richer-than-brioche dough that is dense and does not crumble easily. Furthermore, the grain alcohol used in Paczki prevents the dough from soaking up too much oil during the frying process.

In comparison to paczki, numerous donut varieties contain cake or pastry flour, minimal amounts of enriching components, and baking powder or baking soda in lieu of yeast. As a result, they have a crumblier texture and are not as flavorful.

When it comes to recognizing Fat Tuesday, there is no better way to indulge than with Paczki Day. These scrumptious, decadent treats are a must-have for the occasion. Make sure to be the first in line and stock up with a couple of boxes.
