Polish Apple Pancakes {Racuchy z Jabłkami}

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]. This Polish apple pancake is a sister of an American flap jack, it’s thick and fluffy, sweet and filling. It is 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.
