Polish ‘Racuchy’ with Apple (no gluten, no milk)


For the last couple of months, other than reading about pregnancy and newborns, I was experimenting in a kitchen with new & old recipes.

Now, as I am getting heavier and I spend more time sitting, I thought of sharing some of the recipes with you.

Below, you can find a recipe for well-known in Poland ‘RACUCHY’. It is a kind of small thick pancake resembling the American pancake, but with apple (or berries) inside.
