What Are Oponki?

You can’t have Tłusty Czwartek in Poland without seeing some form of donuts. Apart from the traditional paczki which are donuts filled with custard or jam, we also make the regional pączki like Silesian donuts or oponki.

Oponki are made with a dough of farmer’s cheese or twarog, these ring-shaped donuts look like American donuts, but are light and fluffly inside. They are also called oponki serowe sometimes because they are made with cheese.

Donuts have been around in many cultures for centuries; so when these cheese donuts were invented is anybody’s guess!
