They’re called Belgian Spice, but we made them in Poland. At the time, they seemed like a nice change to the walnut-n-carrot ones, but closer inspection of the two recipes, reveals very little point of difference;-)


1C milk
1 egg
3T butter, melted
1C bran

1C flour
1/4C sugar
2t baking powder
1/2t salt
1/2t nutmeg
1/2t cinnamon

1t orange peel
1C carrot, grated
1/2C raisins
1/2C nuts, chopped

Mix them together, like this.

Another Polish favourite, only called Russian this time. Just like the other two recipes, minus the carrots;-)


1 1/2C flour
1T baking powder
1/4C sugar

1 egg
1t vanilla
7/8C sour milk
1/4C butter, melted

1C walnuts

And the most basic recipe we’ve ever come across, is made fancy by calling it Swedish. In reality, it’s the recipe you can use if you’ve got nothing left in the pantry. My advice is to only use this recipe, if circumstances dictate. Otherwise, choose any other one.


2C flour
4t baking powder
4T sugar

1 egg
1C sour milk
2T oil
