0075 Pfannkuchen am fettigen Donnerstag, Sanok.JPG



  1. Whisk together the sugar, butter, milk, vanilla, salt, and eggs. Whisk in the yeast.
  2. While stirring constantly, add the flour ½ cup at a time until the mixture is a firm dough.
  3. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes. Put it back in the bowl, cover, and let it rise until it's twice it's original size—this should take about 1 ½ hours.
  4. Pat the dough on a lightly floured board, and roll the dough until it's about ½ inch thick. Cut out little rounds. You can roll the excess dough again to make more pączki.
  5. Let the dough rounds rise for about 30 minutes or until they've doubled in size.
  6. Heat some oil to about 350˚F, then fry the pączki until they're golden-brown. Let cool.
  7. While the pączki cool, spoon some fruit jelly or jam in a pastry bag with a long point. Poke the pastry bag in the sides of the pączki & fill the pączki.
  8. Sprinkle some powdered sugar on top and enjoy!
