And that’s the second version of Pączki :)
It turned out that when no one was looking at me while working in the kitchen, doughnuts got twice as big as the previous ones ;P Oh, what can I do that I like xxl baking ;) Let it be cookies, bars of chocolate or mentioned doughnuts… They have to be big! :)

This time I tried this recipe out. It’s a nice one, too.
Just do forgive me that this post is so twin to the yesterday’s one. The thing is, the procedures while making doughnuts are so alike that I decided to be a bit lazy posting this time :)

I’m a teacher so grading time :)

4+ for the dough
5+ for the taste (outstanding!)

So now it’s your choice ;)

Pączki – Polish Doughnuts

POLISH VERSION

Shrove Tuesday… in Poland Shrove too, but Thursday… Maybe a bit complicated but the most important thing about this time is that you can eat as many doughnuts as you want without any remorse ;)

I made my first doughnuts last year and all I remember is that they were VERY good and… VERY formless. I decided to stick to my “VERY standards” and this year both the taste and the form were the same ;P

I checked on two recipes from Moje Wypieki. In the search of the best, I can say :)
This one comes from my evening doughnut production (yes yes, I love baking at nights :))
If I were to evaluate it, I’d give:

5+ for the dough and how nicely it cooperated with me ;)
5 for the final taste of doughnuts

The original recipe you may find here.

And keep in my mind, the best doughnuts are those made at home… still warm, straight from the oven ;)

Oh my, oh my. My fingers just got so itchy to bake :)
Something with yeast, yes yes.
I got a bit jealous, too :) Girls from other blogs were making buns, rolls, bread, croissants… Gosh, and what about me? :)
Straight to the kitchen, quick kneading, quick crumble making… and finally this beautiful smell of a yeast cake all around… To tell you, it’s something that can’t be described… For me, it’s just the smell of cosiness, home and love.
Kocham.
