Word on the Sweet: Plum Ponki at Wawel

Before the doughnut wave, doughnuts were out of the ordinary when cupcakes reigned in Montreal. The only place I can think of that was whipping up fresh doughnuts at the time is Wawel. It’s still around today, and while it doesn't put out innovative flavors like its competitors do, it’s got decades of experience ahead of the newbies. 

This Polish pastry shop carries a wide selection of treats, none more popular than the ponki – Polish, yeast-based doughnuts. Chubby and holeless, each one retails for $1.15 and half a dozen will cost you $4.90.

Glazed with sugar and filled with a tart plum filling unmistakably spiked with booze, the plum ponki is one of the few flavors available if you don’t want a plain one. To be honest, there’s so little filling that you might as well go for the classic, especially when the dough is the best part. Light, fluffy and just sweet enough – don’t leave without a minimum of two in hand.
