Racuszki (Racuchy) for Breakfast


Racuszki are pancakes made from batter fried on a hot griddle or a pan. They are a traditional Polish meal, however, they exist in several variations in many different local cuisines, such as Danish. Usually, it's the form (small pancakes or something akin to donuts) or the stuffing: apple & cinnamon, or raisins, etc., that varies.
