Do you know how I can have fasnacht kuechles for Lent?
Many years ago, Smith’s Bakery (in Columbus/Strub shopping center) would make Fasnacht Kuechles during Lent. These where a cross between a yeast doughnut and an elephant ear. They were BIG with no jelly anywhere to be found (sorry, not a paczki fan). Although they closed a while back, I still crave these as Lent approaches. Any idea of someone local who would produces these or would be familiar with the recipe? Please help! — Sugar Addict on Schiller
