Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Gogoși [1] are a sweet traditional pastries to Romanian cuisine similar to doughnuts but without holes. Gogoși is the plural form of the Romanian word gogoaşă.

Usually gogoși is a deep-fried piece of dough shaped into a flattened sphere in oil like a pancake, with no hole, and are stuffed with chocolate, or filled with jam (strawberry, apricot), cheese like urdă or other filling. It's the most famous dessert in Romania. They may be covered with powdered sugar.


Gogoşi have been made in Romania since Classical antiquity, when Romania was a province of the Roman Empire. The first recipe of donuts, the aliter dulcia, have been created by Apicius in his collection of Roman cookery recipes: the De re coquinaria.


The word gogoși may come from the Persian Gosh Feel, literally elephant ear, an Afghan and Iranian dessert dish made by shaping dough, maybe when Romania was ruled by Ottoman Empire.
