Carnival pastry


These tasty pastries are traditionally served in Slovenia during Carnival. They are so easy to make and even easier to enjoy!


  • 35 dag flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 250 ml whipping cream

Vegetable oil for frying and powdered sugar for dusting

In a large bowl put flour, add an egg in the middle and mix it with sugar and salt. Pour in the whipping cream and knead until smooth dough forms. Let it rest for half an hour, then roll the dough into a rectangle as thinly possible, flouring as needed to prevent sticking. Use an ordinary knife or a fluted pastry wheel to cut smaller rectangles (6 x 10 cm). Then cut 3 to 4 lines inside each rectangle.

Pour vegetable oil into a deep pan, set the hob to medium heat and fry until golden (about 1 minute) on each side. Place the fried pastries on a paper towel to remove excess fat. Dust with powdered sugar.
