Recipes for Fastnacht Day - Pennsylvania Dutch Doughnuts
Fastnacht Day is a special Pennsylvania Dutch celebration with German roots that falls on Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday. Fastnacht (pronounced fost-nokt) translates to 'Fast Night', and celebrates the feast before the Lenten fast. There are three types of Fastnachts. All are somewhat crispy on the outside and not as sweet as most other doughnuts. I have delicious recipes for Yeast Fastnachts as well as Crullers, which use baking powder for leavening. In addition, there are shared recipes for Potato Fastnachts and an Apple Cider Variation based on my cruller recipe. I hope you will try one or all and enjoy.
There is something about winter, more than any other season, that evokes memories of and cravings for our favorite comfort food. Many of those recipes transport us back to our childhood. Others just make us feel warm and cozy inside. There are certain foods that I crave on occasion that make me feel like everything is right with the world. What that food is depends on the time of year and the mood I am in at the moment. I have compiled a collection of my favorite comfort food recipes, many of which are quick and easy, others a bit more labor intensive, some that are healthy and light, and those that are delightfully indulgent. I hope some will become your favorites.
