I was looking for another way of baking Jablecznik but this recipe tastes nothing like Polish Jablecznik. It's more like an Apple Crisp type cake, but very dry. The recipe seemed too quick to make and after it came out of the oven we had to try a little piece so we wouldn't feel so bad tossing the remaining cake. We ate it with tea and some icing sugar sprinkled on top and even then it was barely edible. Again, to summarize, the cake was very dry, tasted too many oats which Jablecznik doesn't really have. I don't recommend this recipe.

I made this as part of the Christmas Eve Wigilia. I found it to be a bit dry. Next time, I think I will add more eggs or oil. The taste was good, it just stuck to your pallet. I even tried serving with vanilla ice cream.

Oats?? We never use oats in polish baking. "Flax seeds"?? It is as polish as american "polish sausage".

I haven't tried it as yet, but it sounds like a recipe from a Polish lady that is visiting my son for a few months. For my birthday in Dec. she brought me one that she baked. She wasn't sure it she could get the ingreds. that she had back in Poland, but my son lives in Toronto and they usually have all the ethnic stores and she found most. Her cake was to die for!!! It was delicious. Before she goes back home to Poland I will check the recipe. She had it in her head so I hope I can duplicate it. But yours sounds equally great. I will sure to try it. Thanks very much for the recipe, Mallina Cashew. Gail, Hamilton, Canada

We really enjoyed this cake. The only change I made was to add 1/3 cup brown sugar to the dough. We have som sugar lovers in my house. :) Highly recommended!
