The Deep-Fried Deliciousness of Poland’s Pączki

Pączki is Polish for “delicious.” Ok, not really… But with its deep-fried dough and sugary jam filling, it might as well be! Sylwia Tomaszkiewicz’s great-grandfather created a secret recipe for pączki that’s still a hit in Warsaw—so much so, the family bakery churns out about 800 to 1,000 of them a day.

This Great Big Story was made possible by Warsaw.
