With "420 calories, 25 or more grams of fat, and loaded with refined carbohydrates which are directly converted into fat. . ." the Pączki (pronounced "poonch-key") is probably the best thing about winter in Detroit. We don't have Fat Tuesday; because of our sizable Polish population we have Pączki Day (Hamtramck even has a Pączki parade).
My wife got up at 5:00 a.m. to get pączki for her office, and she brought a few over to us while bedhead was still in effect.
