Cookbook:Gogoşi  Gogoşi

Gogoși [1] are Romanian sweet pastries similar to filled doughnuts. Gogoși is the plural form of the Romanian word gogoaşă.

Gogoși are pieces of dough shaped into a flattened sphere that are deep-fried in oil and optionally dusted with icing sugar. They have no hole and are often filled. Gogoși fillings include chocolate, apricot jam, strawberry jam or cream cheese.


Gogoşi are believed to date back to Classical antiquity, when Romania was a province of the Roman Empire. They may be related to the sweet dough balls included as aliter dulcia (another sweet dish) in the Roman recipe collection Apicius.
