Racuchy z jabłkami: Polish Apple Pancakes
Polish Apple Pancakes are quick to make, no yeast is needed. Racuchy are great as breakfast or a delicious afternoon snack. Kids love them.
- 2 cups Flour All-Purpose, 300g
- 2 cups Milk Whole, 470ml
- 3 Eggs
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 4 tbsp Powdered Sugar
- 3-4 Apples
- Clarified butter or canola oil; for frying
Blend together milk, eggs, flour and sugar with a spatula. Aim for smooth, fluffy texture. Add baking powder.
Peel the apples, chop them into tiny chunks. Alternatively, grate the apples on a coarse grater and mix them into batter.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium. Lightly coat with butter. Pour a spoon of batter (size of each racuch is up to you!) onto the pan.
Fry each racuch for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a wooden spatula, turn and cook the other side.
Top with desired topping: sugar, honey, jam or cream.
