Polish Yeast Cake

Ciasto Drożdżowe

Polish Yeast Cake is a bit demanding and difficult to me:) Probably it is a case of experience, or in my case – luck of experience:) Anyway, I don’t give up:)

Recently I received a recipe for a yeast cake from my friend Victoria. This is her grandma’s recipe and her family use it for years. She says it is easy and you cannot spoil it:)

Polish yeast cake served with coffee.


  • 40 g fresh yeast
  • 0,5 cup sugar
  • 1 tbs vanilla sugar
  • 0,5 cup milk
  • 5 tbs oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2,5 cup flour
  • pinch salt


  • 60 g butter
  • 0,5 cup sugar
  • 0,5 cup flour

Place dough ingredients in a bowl in an exact order as it is in a pictures below. Do not mix!

Leave it for an hour in a warm place to rise.

After an hour mix everything, place in a cake sheet covered with baking paper. Cake sheet should be about 30cm x 20 cm.

In summer you can cover the cake with fruits like plums, strawberries, rhubarb, raspberries, blackberries or cottage cheese.

Mix ingredients for crumble, sprinkle the cake with it.

Bake for 30-40 minutes in 180 C/ 356 F.

I like Polish Yeast Cake served with a glass of milk. This is how my Grandma used to give us when the cake was still warm. It was the best!
