The ninja wrote about Paczki Day
earlier this month. This really made the ninja hungry for the traditional Polish treat eaten on that day, Punchkis. And he decided to make some.
Well, with that said the ninja set out on a quest to find a Punchki recipe
, which was easier said than done. Yeah, the ninja can cook. And after more than a little digging he found a pretty good recipe, being a nice ninja he decided to share it here, saving you the effort for looking for your own.
