Polish Potato Babka – potato cake is official regional dish of Podlasie: Northeastern part of Poland. It is filling and delicious, if you want less calories- skip bacon:)
I found out from my readers that Polish Potato Babka is called differently in different regions of Poland. I made notes and I’m sharing here:
- Babka ziemniaczana – universal, all over Poland
- Kartoflak, Blin – Podlasie: Białystok, Suwałki – there is several kinds, eg with buckwheat
- Kugel, Kugiel, Ciulim- Jewish
- Szadar – Pomerania: Bory Tucholskie
- Rejbak – Kurpie
- Baba Ziemniaczana, Pyrczok – Kraków
- Tarciuch, Bulbynek – Lublin
- Bryndos, Pirzok – Kujawy
- Bugaj, Nagus, Blaszak – Warsaw, Mazovian
- Kartoflarz – Łódź
- Pyrczok, Kućmok, Kubusz
This is top five of my favorite Polish cuisine. Polish comfort food. Yum!

If you have some Polish Potato Babka left for next day, fry it on the pan, some may say it is even better this way:)
