hen I was a girl, my Polish grandmother would make placek (plah-sek) for holidays, particularly Easter. Placek is a simple Polish coffee cake. Last year at Easter-time, I set out to find a recipe for placek, since my grandmother did not write her recipes down. She baked more by feel and look than by measuring. Luckily for me, the internet is filled with recipes and I found the perfect one at Delicious Inspiration.
his year, I have been incredibly busy, working on a Master's degree whilst teaching full time and trying to maintain my Stampin' Up business. Many things have been put on hold, but placek has not. Last week I pulled the recipe out and got to baking.
Everything starts with a wet batter that has yeast added to it, often referred to as a "sponge" in the baking world. The batter pictured above is simply milk, flour, sugar and yeast.
