    John 11-44's Note:

    Placek (plah-sek) in Polish just means cake, but placek around back home (and probably other cities with a high Polish population) refers to a sweet yeast bread topped with sugary crumble, with golden raisins served on Easter. You hardly see placek, which is a shame! This bread can also be wrapped well and frozen, then taken out as necessary for eating and giving away, meaning it can be made ahead of time! Placek is the kind of bread that begs to be spread with butter - it's not like a moist sour cream coffee cake. It has a drier crumb, making it an even better partner to coffee or tea.
