For The Bread:
- One liter of canola oil
- 8 eggs
- One small pinch of sugar powder
- One hundred grams of sugar
- 1 package of sugar with vanilla
- 45 grams of recent yeast
- One hundred grams of butter
- 500 grams of flour for baking
- 1 tablespoon of orange peel peeled off
- A little salt
- 20 milliliters of vodka
- 150 ml of milk with a 3.2% fat content
To Make The Plum Filling (Powidła):
- 390 grams of jam made from plums
- 125 milliliters of orange juice
- 1 tablespoon of grated orange zest
- Two tablespoons of cake flour are added.
- Warm the milk slowly. Mix yeast with 2 tablespoons of sugar until it turns into a liquid. Then add the yeast to the milk.
- Sift the flour into a bowl. Make a well in the middle of the flour and pour the yeast and milk mixture into it. Mix some of the flour (sponge) with the liquid, cover it with a cloth, and let it rise for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Mix egg whites with sugar and vanilla sugar, a little salt, grated orange zest, and liquor. Add this to the cake that has risen. Mix everything together and then add the melted butter. Work the dough with your hands until it starts to separate.
- Cover the paczki dough with a cloth and sprinkle it with a little flour. Let it rise in a warm place until it doubles in size.
Filling Of Plums:
- Put the plum jam in a pan and add the orange juice and zest that has been grated. After a few minutes of cooking, the liquid should be gone. Let the sauce for the plums cool down.
Putting The Paczki Together:
- Once the dough has risen, knead it again, gently roll it out, and cut it into 6 cm rounds.
- In the middle of each circle, put plum filling. Fold them in half and roll them into small balls to seal them. Cover the paczki with a cloth and set them on a floured board. Let them rise for about 20 minutes.
- Warm the oil in a pot that’s 18 to 20 cm across to about 170 to 175°C. You can tell it’s hot by putting a little piece of raw dough into it.
- Fry the paczki for about 2 to 2 and a half minutes on each side, or until they turn golden brown.
- Place the fried paczki on a baking sheet that has been lined with paper towels to soak up any extra oil.
- Finally, sprinkle powdered sugar over the paczki to finish.
