READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by the4taals

I love paczkis but they are only available on Shrove Tuesday where I live, and not really healthy. I searched Recipezaar and found 2 recipes (#97522 & #83936) that I combined and modified to come up with this! Enjoy!

I guess I must start by saying that I am a non-Polish Chicagoan who was transplanted from the area. I have been making pazcki for Mardi Gras since we moved, and this is my favorite recipe! The ingredients balance well in the bread machine--not to wet, not too dry. And they bake up lovely

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all the ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order they are listed.
  2. Start dough cycle.
  3. When cycle is complete knead dough on a lightly floured surface, adding more flour if needed until dough is no longer sticky.
  4. Roll out to 1/2 inch thick and cut with a 3 inch round.
  5. Place on a greased cookie sheet, cover with a tea towel and let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and immediately brush paczkis with melted butter and then roll in sugar.
  8. Use a pastry bag fitted with a round tip to squirt jam into doughnut, resist the urge to overfill as it will run out everywhere.
