Polish Paczki or Doughnuts:This is a baked pączki recipe for Polish bismarcks, also known as doughnuts, which are eaten on Fat Tuesday or Pączki Day in America and on Fat Thursday in Poland before the fasting days of Lent begin. Traditionally, pączki are fried in hot fat, packing quite a wollop in the calorie department. This baked version removes some of the guilt from indulging.

In Poland, pączki are eaten especially on Fat Thursday (the last Thursday before Ash Wednesday). Many Polish Americans celebrate Pączki Day on Fat Tuesday. Traditionally, the reason for making pączki was to use up all the lard, sugar, eggs and fruit in the house, because they were forbidden to be consumed due to Catholic fasting practices during Lent.
