Kremówka papieska – the papal cake
It was only 1999 when during his pilgrimage to Wadowice, the pope
mentioned the local cafe in which he with the friends used to buy
the cake of unforgettable taste…
Next day everyone wanted to buy the cream cake – ‘kremówka papieska’ so called since after.
The cake however was and still is very popular even without the papal recommendation.
Here is the recipe:

…the real taste as it was it the times of pope’s childhood misses one ingredient.
As the friends of the pope explained in their memoires , the owner
of the shop used to add to the cream some drops of local alkohol.
