Pączki are Polish doughnuts in the shape of a flattened ball, filled with marmalade and deep-fried in lard or other fat. They are most abundantly consumed on Fat Thursday (six days before Ash Wednesday) in Poland or on Fat Tuesday (also known as Paczki Day, the day before Ash Wednesday) among Polish Americans and Polish Canadians.
