Three delectable paczki from Amadeus restaurant in Ann Arbor.
The sad truth in Ann Arbor is that the locally available paczkis are usually no different than the big jelly doughnuts seen the rest of the year. I've even seen chocolate covered jelly doughnuts passed off as paczki. Fortunately, we have Amadeus to save us from sickly sweet offerings found at most other local bakeries. Their paczkis are small tasty morsals filled with real fruit and custards with a cake-like dough that's an order of magnitude better than the usual bland jelly doughnut dough. Amadeus makes a variety of different fillings from the traditional plum filling to a yummy custard, but they only make a small number each year so reserve early. (Or plan on a trip to Detroit.)
