    ‘Borrowed’ Christmas delicacy called ‘ule’ – recipe 

    The sweet praline-flavoured delicacy with an alcoholic filling. To make them, you need a special beehive mould which you fill with any cream. There can be lots of ideas and flavourings, but here’s a version that is probably the most popular and well-loved nutty hives. 

    The recipe is super easy, does not take long and the effects are incredible. Despite ‘hives’ are not a traditional Polish delicacy, they became extremely popular among Poles. They are usually prepared on a special occasion, like Christmas. 


    • 250 grams / 8,8 oz of ground walnuts
    • 250 grams / 8,8 oz of icing sugar
    • 1 egg white
    • 250 ml / 8.5 fl oz of unsweetened milk
    • 1 packet of eggnog cream
    • 2 glasses (approx. 60 ml / 2 fl oz) of spirit
    • Wafers


    1. The day before, make a paste of the eggnog cream, milk, and spirit.
