Lenten Baking: paczki, hot cross buns, king cakes, Vastlakuklid, pretzels??

February 22, 2012 - 6:14am -- tabasco

Hi, TFLers,

Perhaps the Lenten baking enthusiasts among us can help me?

I am writing an article about Lenten baking traditions and I am hoping bakers on Fresh Loaf who bake anything in particular for the season might share your story, what is popular in your local,  perhaps your family tradition, a pic or/and a recipe?  Breads, cookies, pastries, etc., are what I have in mind.

Here in Cincinnati the bakeries advertise their 'paczkis', but I don't really know exactly what they are...they seem very popular though.

Does anyone make paczki?

Hi all:

If you're reading this forum, I'm guessing that you already know what a "paczki" is!

Does anyone have a good paczki recipe? I know that it's a long time until the Lenten season arrives, but I don't want to be caught paczki-less this year like I did last year.


KP in Atlanta (where there are no paczki!)
