Racuchy topped with powdered sugar
Racuchy or racuszki is a traditional Polish dish from the same family of foods as the crêpe and similar to American pancakes. Racuchy is made from some flour, milk, eggs, sugar and a pinch of salt. Racuchy are made with yeast or, in other versions, baking powder or baking soda is used. Racuchy are pan fried in oil. In Poland, racuchy are usually eaten as dinner, snack or supper.
Racuchy can be eaten plain, sprinkled with sugar, or topped with powdered sugar. In alternative versions some cream or sour cream can be used.
In some regions, racuchy are prepared more savoury and served with fish soup or mushroom soup during the Christmas Eve dinner.
The most popular version of racuchy is stuffed with slices of apple and served with sugar. Sometimes, in more modern versions, other fruits can be used, for instance, bananas.
