Of all my holidays in England I miss the Eccles cakes the most. I don't know if they are available in Poland?

Eccles cakes

Sometimes called 'squashed fly cake'. I like those too (but not their cousin Chorley cakes which have denser pastry). I've not seen them in Poland and currants as a cake filling aren't as popular in PL. They're easy to make though.

I've seen a cake that's a bit similar, however Poles seem to prefer sweeter, creamier or more delicate cakes. Jap Fancies (a Lancashire speciality) would suit Polish tastes quite well; they're a bit similar to cakes there. They can also be made with chocolate which people in PL would like.

I have to agree, Polish cakes are superb.

Although German, French and Italian are very good too.

Polish cheesecake is the best in the world!
Even my non Polish wife learnt to cook it beautifully, with some help from some of my Polish Aunts......

fritter

Wow, never before have I heard this word for a cake. In Polish frytura means oil for deep frying.

Fritters are closer to racuchy than to cake.

There are however both sweet (like apple) or savory (onion) or in-between (corn)

I meant a pie, of course.

Fascinating education!!! Thanks.
