47w ago

Everybody loves doughnuts. Everybody loves doughnuts even more if you've made them yourself at home and they're piping hot and fresh. Give these tasty paczki a go!

Total time needed: 20-30 minutes


+ Cream cottage cheese (300g)

+ 3 eggs

+ Flour 1.5 cups

+ Baking powder (1 teaspoon)

OPTIONAL* - vanilla extract (1 teaspoon) / vanilla sugar (one package - 16g) / pinch of cinnamon


1. Add your cream cottage cheese, eggs, vanilla extract and pinch of cinnamon to a bowl and mix everything until you get a smooth consistency. 👇

2. Next, add baking powder, vanilla sugar (if you use) and flour. Mix it once again 👇

3. Heat oil in a large saucepan. Then use a teaspoon to form the doughnuts. Place the dough in the oil and fry them until gold colour. 👇

4. Strain your paczki on a plate/tray lined with paper towels and they are ready to serve.

They are not too sweet, that's why I serve them with jam or icing sugar!
