    Poker's Note:

    Way back on Shrove Tuesday, the day preceding Ash Wednesday, the Poles celebrate the last day of parties & festivals by baking & serving "pontshki". This was My Polish Grandmothers recipe. Never Made it--it is very time consuming ! I like this recipe because the doughnuts you get now are nothing like these! The old way is the best way & Taste a whole lot better! Never made these so have no Idea on cooking time or Prep time may be around 60 to 65 because of the yeast & dough rising time?

      These are amazing! They are light and tender with just the right amount of lemon and spice. They were something of a project to make, and in the mixing in the melted butter stage, I had to work in the butter with my hands. After that the dough was very easy to work with and shape. It is important to put the shaped doughnuts on a well floured board. If you're craving good doughnuts, give this recipe a try. You won't be disappointed. Thank you very much Poker, for sharing this with us.
