Oponki is a Polish donuts which is very popular snack in Poland. I tried this type of dessert for the first time in Darłowo during our trip. It was then that Bartek told me that his mother often made such donuts. So I decided to prepare tires that are plump, light and extremely tasty 🙂


300 g of flour
50 g of sugar
250 g of semi-fat cottage cheese, ground with a fork, for example (you can use mascarpone, but then you need to add less cream)
1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
2 egg yolks
100 g of 12% cream or Greek yogurt
1 flat teaspoon of baking soda
half a teaspoon of vinegar
700 ml of frying oil
1 glass of 95% alcohol
powdered sugar for sprinkling


Place flour, sugar, cottage cheese, vanilla sugar, egg yolks, cream, baking soda and vinegar on a flat surface. Use the given ingredients to knead the dough, if the dough is too sticky, add a small amount of flour. When the dough is ready, sprinkle it with flour and roll it out to a thickness of 0.5 – 1 cm, depending on how thick you want to get. Use a big glass and small glass to make the appropriate shape of donuts. Roll out the rest of the dough again and keep rolling until the dough is used up, you can simply fry the rest of the dough. In a large pot, heat the alcohol and oil to 175°C. If you don’t have a thermometer, heat the oil over medium heat for about 10 minutes and watch the tires cook. Fry the tires on each side for a minute until golden brown. After frying, place the donuts on a plate lined with a paper towel so that they absorb the excess fat. When they cool slightly, sprinkle the top of the donuts with powdered sugar. Serve immediately 🙂
