Just remember: "paczki" is already plural. Don't say "paczkis." That would be like saying "doughnutses."

So what do you call one paczki? Or is it one of those words like moose or fish where it's the same plural and singular?

They've been making them here at Quality Dairy (a local 7/11-type convience chain) in Lansing for a week or two, now. I know they are only supposed to make them one day of the year, and the version they make is probably a basterdized version, but they try, and it's all good. :-) At least they don't do like some places I've tried and simply make a jelly donut and pass it off as paczki.

If you are in Lansing- there is a family bakery across from the Farmers Market downtown which makes fresh Paczki- it has been a while and the name is no longer there. better than Quality Dairy- which is only good for ice-cream and Egg Nog.

Goggo, spoken like someone who's never had a day-old paczek before. They aren't tasty; they're more like hockey pucks.

He must be; that's the only other bakery around the market that I can think of. That's in my neighborhood. A great store, but expensive, too. It cracks me up that it's an Italian bakery that makes paczki. I guess they even realize where the money is in making them, though. For a long time, I always thought this was a national thing growing up, but I guess it's a really big deal in Michigan.

BTW, I have yet to find a convience store chain here in Michigan that also specializes in baked goods like QD does. I love 'em. lol

I had no idea they had products outside the area. Cool!

Their actual shop isn't all that impressive. It's a small storefront, but with a relatively large bakery attach to the back of it. It is two-three blocks north of the stadium, in what is a warehouse/light industrial district.

I went to New Palace Bakery in Hamtramck and the line was jam packed like crazy. I have to wait almost an hour so I can buy a baker's dozen of Paczkis.

The paczki were also jam-packed but are now used by the Red Wings.

Hello Everyone, I have followed the Forum for quite some time but I have never submitted a message. Here, in South Bend, IN, we have a very large Polish population. We celebrate Fat Tuesday with paczkis as well. We have a bakery downtown that is featured each Fat Tuesday selling these special pastries. We have a great deal of Polish immigrants and decendants here in South Bend. Catholic Masses are still held in Polish in west side churches. West side groceries carry Polish breads and goods ... the good old days ... I think only a few other cities observe with the paczki pastries ... Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago, Pittsburgh ... at one time South Bend, IN was a destination for many Poles, Studebaker was headquartered here, Bendix, Oliver Plow, etc. I love the old days !!

Hi Hysteria. Welcome and hello to the land of Studebaker.

Ham_Steve... I have in fact, had days-old paczkis and have devoted much time in researching the resusictation of vintage paczkis. So far, microwaving them in the presence of boiling water (in a Pyrex measuring cup) for about 10 seconds (with a 850W magnetron tube) seems to revive them to an acceptable condition. The parameter, 'acceptable', is fixed to taste buds that are somewhat forgiving and consider tossing out paczkis sacreligious.

p.s: If you really want to save that precious paczki and do it right, remove as much powdered sugar, if so prepared, then steam it. Replace the powdered sugar afterward for a new-paczki feel. If it's glazed, you can embellish the dried-up glaze with a light coating of 10X and then steam it.

What's 10X? Sounds lethal.

Paczki-less in Ottawa.

If he makes it to another Lent! That still sounds too painful.

And by the way, here's the Freep article for your (burp) viewing pleasure...

Mbr, my handle is a Detroit address - 220 Hendrie was where my grandmother grew up. (In 1910, she would have been 11.) I think the new numbering would have been 586 (corner of St. Antoine), part of the remnant block that faces the Ford Freeway, but no longer standing.
