Polish Yeast Apple Pancakes {Racuchy}

It is officially apple season. Can you tell that apples now taste differently than just a few weeks ago? We got a new batch of crunchy, juicy and fresh fruit off the trees and now it’s time to make some delicious dishes to incorporate sweet Galas, red Fujis, Cortlands and McIntoshes in cakes, bakes, salads, and desserts.

I’m going with my childhood favorite: racuchy z jabłkami [rah-coo-hyh z ya-bwkah-mee]. These Polish apple pancakes are a sister of an American flap jack, they’re thick and fluffy, sweet and filling. They are  made with addition of yeast so it tastes just a bit different, and thin pieces of crunchy apple is subtle but not unnoticeable. Light sprinkle of powdered sugar adds a nice sweetness and makes it all kids’ favorite.

  1. I made these on Thursday for an after school snack and it was a huge hit among the kids and adults alike. My daughter’s friend said they tasted like “donut pancakes.” My husband then had them for supper and then insisted I make them again this weekend! They will be a regular rotation for breakfast (and probably lunch and supper and every snack in between) in our household from now on! Dziękuję for sharing!

  2. I let it rise twice, once before mixing the apples in, and once after, just to make sure they were thick pancakes. Served some with aquafaba “marshmallow” fluff and some with powdered sugar. This recipe would be a good “special occasion” breakfast 🙂

  3. These are great! Not very sweet, so my (New England born and raised) husband insisted on pouring maple syrup on his. I preferred just the powdered sugar. I may add more milk next time. Ana, you need to make sure this is in your cookbook!

  4. I made these this morning. They came out delicious and perfect like yours. My partner told me his mom used to make them when he was a kid. He said it brought good memories of his childhood. I also served them with maple syrup as we’re in season here. Thank you for the recipe, it’s definitely a winner.
