Mmmmmmmm .... ponki
If you were to watch the Simpsons in Poland, you'd be hearing Homer saying "Mmmmmm .... ponki" a lot, because "ponki" are Polish donuts. And in my humble Eastern European opinion, they beat any North American donut hands down. For one thing, what's with the hole in the middle of a donut, when you could fill it with cream or jam. That is valuable donut real estate. No self-respecting Polish donut would be caught dead with a hole in its centre.
We are lucky to have a Polish bakery just down the street from us, and whenever we visit Andrew and Maggie and their kids Colin and Robert (as we are tonight), we bring ponki. In fact, the first words out of the kids mouths are usually, "Did you bring the Polish donuts?!?!?!"
Now, I wish I could bring this post to you in some sort of smellorama, because these smell as incredible as they taste.
