Polish Apple Pancakes are apples dipped into pancake batter, then fried and topped with powdered sugar or a sweet syrup!
This is the type of food I like to eat for breakfast on weekends! In my family, we usually have big breakfasts when it’s the weekend. And it’s always either a Russian breakfast that consists of Russian Porridge (we call it Kasha), boiled eggs, Bleni (Crepes), Grenki, Syrniki. Or, a Middle Eastern breakfast that consists of Hummus, Mtabbal, Falafel, goat cheese, sliced tomatoes, Labaneh, Olives, Pita bread, and sweetened tea! You may also want to try my Breakfast Tabbouleh, it’s seriously awesome!
So this weekend we decided to have a Russian (or Polish) breakfast. And while browsing through different recipes on Pinterest, I came across an apple pancake recipe and it reminded me of this lovely Polish recipe that my Mum always made and we all loved.
I don’t know Polish but someone told me that this recipe is called “racuchy z jabłkami”. It’s a traditional Polish recipe, where apples are dipped in pancake batter and fried!
But anyway here’s a brief Polish language lesson for you, as a friend explained to me:
Racuchy mean pancakes
Jabłkami mean apple
And Racuchy z jabłkami mean pancakes with apples
What I really love about these pancakes is that they’re crispy on the outside, sweet and fluffy on the inside.
Apples are in season here, and since I’m a huge fan of pancakes, these pancakes were the best thing I’ve had for a while. If you are a fan of pancakes you NEED to try this classic pancake recipe! It’s one of the most popular recipes on my blog, and whoever tried it LOVED it. I got lots of great feedback, so make sure to give it a try!
These pancakes can be either eaten plain or sprinkled with powdered sugar. I like adding lots of caster/powdered sugar! Give this recipe a try and it will sure become a favourite treat!
