Fastnacht Day is coming up on February 28. Traditionally, it was a day when people used up all their lard and sugar by making donuts just before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. Since I work in a bakery in a geographical area where many people still observe Fastnacht by eating donuts that day, it makes my next two days extremely busy and disruptive to my sleep schedule. Tonight and tomorrow night, I will be going in to fry donuts starting at midnight. There will be people frying donuts in the bakery from midnight tonight around the clock till late Tuesday afternoon. In the pictures below, I show some donuts that we regularly make year round.
Above are my favorite donuts - glazed sour cream stick donuts. The picture also show the glazing container.
This is a rack of donuts that I was taking out to the donut case this past Saturday morning. It contains a variety of donuts including glazed, powdered, sugar, and iced rings, Bavarian filled donuts, strawberry jelly donuts, white cream donuts, and more.
