    PanNan's Note:

    This is posted for the World Tour 2005 RecipeZaar event. I haven't had a chance to try it yet. My source is Time Life's Good Cook series "Cakes", and it's origins are from The Art of Polish Cooking by Alina Zeranska. Mazurkas are traditional Polish Easter cakes.

      Loved this recipe!!! This is not what i envision when i think of a "cake" but what a wonderful surprise! I used fresh apricot preserves and it really completed the Mazurka. The sweet icing is the perfect compliment for the not so sweet cake. I was surprised the cake layers were not sweeter b/c of the sugar used - sheer perfection. The texture is unlike a traditional American cake.... It reminded me of a soft cookie or almost like a scone. So easy to cut with nice straight lines! I added almonds to the top along with some new spring Dogwood blossoms. I presented the cake to my soon-to-be MIL for her birthday which happened to be on Easter this year. She often speaks of her Polish heritage and her favorite grandmother's recipes.... this was so perfect :)

      This was incredible! We host an Russian Exchange student and were looking for something to add to our holiday meal so that she felt a part of the festivities...TThis fit that bill nicely. Thanks.
