Sweet yeast cake (recipe for polish drożdżòwka)


This cake is one of the polish basic cakes, perfect on its own, gorgeous with seasonal fruits. For me the best bit is the crumble on top. I have to admit that I have never made this cake on my own. Usually when my mum bakes it, it’s always deliiiciuus. So nice that on my last holiday I got a massive piece to take back to England- of course it disappeared within 2 days (I love to have it for breakfast; in my opinion pudding is usually a great idea to start your day right). But back to my yeast cake, I have never made it on my own because it requires a lot of energy and strength. Of course it is manageable, you just need some guy to help. If you decide to do everything yourself it will be a good test for your arm muscles. Both ways- lots of fun 😊

In future I’m thinking to change flour to wholegrain and maybe add some seeds- to make it more nutrishious.
