Faworki are a traditional Polish snack, mostly served during carnival or Fat Thursday. But to be honest, any occasion is good to eat Faworki!


Polish traditional cookies, mostly served during carnival or fat Thursday. But to be honest, any occasion is good to eat faworki.



  • Flour (2 cups)
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar or spirit
  • 5 tablespoons sour cream (18%)
  • Oil for frying (1.5 litres)
  • Icing sugar (to sprinkle faworki at the end)


  1. Mix flour, sour cream, yolks, salt, vinegar or spirit and sugar together. Knead the dough (dough's consistency should be smooth)
  2. Roll out the dough finely on the surface sprinkled with flour. Cut the dough into 3 cm strips and cut a slit in the middle of each strip. Pull one end of the dough through the gap, shake it gently so that they take a nice shape and set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in deep pot. Fry faworki (angel wings) until gold.
  4. Strain faworki on a plate lined with paper towels.

Recipe Notes

Instead of icing sugar you may serve faworki with jam

  • I was surprised to see those from Poland. My wife is from Brazil and makes something identical but sprinkles cinnamon and sugar mixture over them. The Brazilian name wins, translated to english they are called "inside out underwear" lol seriously

    • You're welcome and thanks for following me. I hope that everything is understandable in this recipe 😂 coz' I try to translate it right. From this recipe I received about 37 angel wings but probably it depended on how I cut the dough 🤔
