Jenny Can Cook Paczki Recipe

It’s paczki again! I’ve never seen paczki done this way and I love Boston cream pie. The idea for “Boston Creme Donuts” came from Erika last month, who said she made them for her husband’s birthday.  I am so trying this! Thank you, Erika.

p.s. I’ve been super busy and have not posted any new recipes but I will soon. I’m working on a couple of new ones and just need time to fine tune them and take the photos.

“Jenny, A late night craving for something sweet led me to your Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons. So quick and easy, luckily I had the 7 ounce bag of coconut in my pantry and the ever present Baker’s Baking Bars. Fast and easy to make and great with a big glass of milk! Thanks. ~ Mark from Deep East Texas.”

BEV (from Canada) MADE MY PACZKI

“Hi Jenny – A good day for baking with the snow storm in southern Ontario today so I decided to make the Boston Creme variation of your Paczki.  Another hit!  This is also the first time I’ve made custard – I’ve been too afraid to try it since I’ve been told it’s not an easy thing to make.  Well, yours is!  Thank you, Jenny, I can’t believe how quick and easy these donuts are to make.  Maybe too easy lol……good thing we’re going for long walks in lockdown.   Bev (from Canada).”

BEV (from Canada) MADE MY PACZKI

“Hi Jenny – First time trying these.  I used Active Dry Yeast but think I should have used the Rapid Rise because the dough didn’t puff up or increase in size so I was only able to make 7 instead of 12.  Still delicious though, they baked up really nicely.  Next time I’ll try the custard filling….and the time after that the Boson Creme variation…  Thanks for a bright spot in our day.   Bev (from Ontario, Canada)”

– I could eat these every single day. Thank you for this awesome photo! jennyJenny Can Cook Paczki

“Made it exactly as recipe stated yesterday.  I will tent it a little next time.  Today I made it again but I am going to put it in 2 small bread pans.  One for me and one for the great grandkids  I like to toast it in the mornings. I like having it rise only once.”

BARBARA MADE MY WHOLE WHEAT BREAD

“Hi Jenny – I’ve been looking for a decent whole wheat bread recipe for *decades* & so glad I found yours. Thought you’d like to see it with an egg wash glaze and (homemade) Everything But The Bagel seasoning on top – oh so good toasted! I do make the whole thing in my mixer with minimal hand kneading (I let it rest in the mixer for 5 minutes before turning out to give the flour a bit more time to hydrate). Slice it & freeze with wax paper between the slices & easy peasy to take out what’s needed. Thank you for this recipe! (and for the crusty roll recipe, too – always on hand in our freezer). Cheers, and happy baking!”

– Wow, that looks great! Thank you for starting off the month with all this detail, which is always appreciated by fellow bakers.  jennyHow To Make Whole Wheat Bread
