Happy Fastnacht Day!
Here in Eastern Pennsylvania, Shrove Tuesday is known a Fastnacht Day. The Pennsylvania Dutch traditionally eat fastnachts, which are like a donut without a hole.
They are traditionally eaten with syrup.
I am linking to a Wikipedia page for fastnachts.


Fastnachts with Yeast 2 cups scalded milk, ½ cup lard, 1 cup mashed potatoes, 2 teaspoons salt, ¾ cup sugar, 2 well beaten eggs, 1 package yeast, 7 cups flour, approximately Scald milk and add mashed potatoes, sugar, salt, and lard. Cool until lukewarm. Add eggs. Add yeast and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead well and place in a greased bowl. Cover with a cloth and let rise about 1½ hours. Roll ¼ inch thick on a floured board. Place on a cloth and let rise until doubled in size and fry in hot fat.


Has anyone eaten a fastnacht today?

Do they have ground cat meat as a filling?

No, not traditionally.
But you can slice the fastnacht in half like a bun and place sliced things inside to make a sandwich. A little five spice powder would make cat go well with a fastnacht, I would think.

Sounds good!
Very similar to paczki, imho, a Polish delicacy, popular in the Midwest today.

Yes, they are like that. I have never got to have paczki, but I remember a thread here discussing them not that long ago.

Here in northwestern, central PA we have keuchels. Kinda similar, but no potatoes or potato water. Roundish dough, raised around the edges, thin in the middle. Fried & then dusted with confectioners sugar. In the old days it was said, that the women stretched the dough over their knees to get it the right shape! 😲😋
