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.
