Hello in the New Year. I hope you well, you ate a lot of cheesecake, poppyseed strudel and relaxed a bit.
Today, I want to serve you cheesecake pancakes, in Polish, they are known as serowe racuchy, racuszki z serem, but if we are to trust Wikipedia there origin is more eastern. Somewhere from Ukraine or Russia. In the Western world, pancakes are connotated with breakfast, for me – racuchy were always speedy, delicious lunch. I would guess it was on the days when mom or grandma didn’t have time to make proper food, but even now I love this delicate, sweet lunches like crepes with sweet cheese filling or lazy dumplings. Racuchy taste like little clouds of a fried cheesecake. They are very delicate, so be careful when turning them.
