The name of this dish in Polish is Zrazy Zawijany
18 Jun 2008 #153
A friend of mine was born in Poland and made me a rich and delicious cake for my birthday years ago. It was encrusted in a delicate pastry, inside was a moist dense chocolate filling with nuts, figs (maybe other fruits), chocolate chunks, spices. Does this sound like something you may know about?

I would love to make this myself. The recipe was very invlolved, it was almost like a giant choclate fig newton. Does anyone have this recipe?

Do you realize what a hit your daughter would be if she made ( KRUSCZIKJI) ? ( POLISH BOW TIES)
There a lot of recipes on the internet.. There are a lot of good ones. I use a lot of egg yolks.. Try it. She will love you OH Yes use some sour cream.

Need recipe for chocolate fig pie

About 10 years ago I was working at a college and one of the students who came to US from Poland made me a birthday cake/pie. I never tasted or saw anything like it before. My family and I are avid bakers and this was so unique. It was encrusted in a delicate pastry, inside was dense moist chocolate filling with figs, nuts, spices and chunks of chocolate and other ingredients. It was so delicious! I have never forgot this cake! At the end of the term I asked this student for the recipe, after a few weeks she came into my office and gave it to me. I was delighted. When I looked it over I noticed that it was difficult to understand. Evidently she had to translate it because it was a very old family recipe written in polish. Anyway, I pretty much figured out how to make. It is a very complicated process so I put it in my recipe box and told myself that when I felt ambitious I would tackle this wonderful dessert. Well, I can not find her recipe anywhere! I LOST IT. I am hoping that someone somewhere knows about this cake/pie and can help me find the recipe. I have been researching the Internet with no luck. Thanks. Luisa

Strange request but I am looking for a recipe for "hamburgers". I've eaten hamburgers in Poland at a flea market and they were really good. They aren't just "ground beef" formed in a patty like in the US. I'm wondering if they are all pork or a mixture of pork and beef and what seasonings are used and if any onion, garlic, or any other ingredient is used and if so, is the onion &garlic sauteed first or added raw? Also, they didn't seem to have been fried in a pan as there weren't any "fry marks" or dark brown crusting as you get when you make "kotlet mielony" at home so were these burgers boiled or baked??? Also, if anyone can remember all the condiments that are used. Remember:

raw onion
some kind of kapusta but not kiszona
I'm not sure if tomato is typically used?
Anything else???

I do not know if we are talking about the same thing. But we make what we (CALLED POLSKE KLUBKI)

Ground beef
Chopped onion
Small cut celery Parsley
Salt Pepper
One or two eggs (DEPENDS ON THE AMOUNT)
Formed into balls and fried in oil.

Hmmm, sounds more like meatloaf. Stalk celery isn't really a common ingredient in polish foods and I'm sure that they use at least half pork if not all and their not fried, at least in the usual sense but anyway, sounds good.

I am looking for a recipe for Kapusta like my Babcia made -- I know it had sauerkraut and some sort of tomato - paste, soup, diced - I don't know.. The only recipes I can find don't have the tomato in it.....

Also, she used to make a mushroom gravy that was to die for -- but it was a white sauce, not brown... Any ideas? Thanks!

There are two recipes that people usually interchange/ confuse names.
1) Kapusta- Cabbage stew
Usually this recipe is lighter in color, less meat. Diced tomatoes can be included for taste if one wishes to.
Here is one recipe:

2) Bigos- Hunters stew
This recipe is darker in color, has much more meat than kapusta recipe. Truly original recipes are cooked, stewed over couple of days.
Here is one recipe:

Google can help with one if no one here has any. Make sure you also find a recipe for the dumplings. Good luck.

Don't know what you call the rolled meat in Polish but I have had and made the German version Rouladen and the Italian version called Braciole. Both excellent. I am guessing the rouladen may come closer to the Polish version. flank steaks spread with some mustard, onion, pickle and bacon, rolled then browned in a pan. Served with maybe potaotoe dumplings and gravy and some nice fresh geen beans. The Braciole is pork steaks (thin) spread with parmesan cheese, parsley, seasoning and rolled and then gently browned and finished by throwing in tomato sauce (the sauce you make for pasta)

Can anyone help?

Maybe I should have done some research before posting this….

I would like to try my hand at making Polish chicken soup, I am not sure if there are various different types or ways to make this dish.

I would like to impress my polish friend so if I get practicing then maybe I will let him try some…..

A popular recipe would be great!

I've been looking at ways to incorporate more vegetables, roots, and fruits into my diet. I am going to try Mizeria, Pistachio. I like English cucumbers better than the pickling variety. Since I am trying new ways to prepare meals with veggies, I am on the lookout for new recipes. Another favorite of mine, with cucumbers, is a dill -yogurt- cucumber sauce. The cool flavor of the cucumber (a bit melony but without the sweetness) mixes well with the dill and yogurt. I noticed the dill in your Mizeria recipe, too. I like that combination, cucumbers with sour cream and dill or yogurt and dill.
