Polish Apple Pancakes

Apple Racuchy are one of the favorite Polish suppers. Children love them and they are simple and easy to make.

My Racuchy are crispy and fluffy, even though I don’t use yeast nor baking powder – are you ready to find out what is the secret of my perfect Racuchy: fluffy, crispy and moist inside? 🙂

Polish Redcurrant Kompot

I cooked Polish Redcurrant Kompot, as lately I got a plenty of redcurrant from my friend. Kompot is a drink, that Poles usually drink to dinner. It is served in every Polish office and school’s canteen.

Kompot is a fruit drink made of fresh or dried fruits. Wikipedia says that the tradition of kompot drinking has more than 700 years! The most special kompot is made for Christmas Eve- you cook dried fruits with seasonings like cloves and cinnamon. It smells like Christmas:)

In the Summer when there are many fresh fruits available, you can easily have this nice, healthy, simple drink for kids and adults. You can cook kompot using cherries, apples, rhubarb, strawberries, plums or peaches. You can also mix few different fruits in one pot. It is much better than soda. It’s fresh, with no preservatives and you control the level of sugar, or use healthier sweeteners, such as stevia.

Polish Apple Pie – Szarlotka

Polish Apple Pie – Szarlotka is one of the most popular desserts in Polish families and in cafes in Poland. Can be served cold or warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a whipped cream.

Polish pancakes/ Naleśniki

Polish pancakes is my children’s’ top choice for supper. They like it served with maple syrup or simply with sugar powder. It is 15 minutes to have it on a plate. Try!

I like spelt flour, as it is less modified compared to usual wheat flour. We don’t use flour so much, so I prefer to spend more on a good quality product for my children, without home budget crisis;)

I also like ‘Krupczatka’ flour which is a wheat flour not so much grounded.
