These 15 Bakeries Serve The Best Paczki In Michigan
Some know this coming Tuesday as Fat Tuesday. Others know it as Mardi Gras. In some parts of Michigan, we know it by another name: Paczki Day. In keeping with the tradition of indulging in sweets and booze on the day before Lent, the paczki (pronounced poon-ki) is a glutenous Polish pastry that resembles a jelly-filled donut. The difference is, these things are maybe three times the size of your typical donut and they’re loaded with a variety of fillings. Think rose hip, prune, and custard, for starters.

Bakeries all over the state also offer the Fat Tuesday pastry and we’ve identified some for you just in case you haven’t decided where to get yours yet. Check ’em out!
