There are all sorts of doughnuts in this world, but few seem to be as perfect filling delivery vehicles as these pączki, or Polish doughnuts.

"Based on a yeast starter," according to this recipe from Bon Vivant, "the batter is then enriched with eggs, fat and flavorings before being filled with a teaspoon or two of your preferred confiture or cream and deep-fried to a golden hue."
