The Story Behind the Bake

This bake is very popular in Poland, possibly because of it's unique and quirky look, resembling the forest floor. Therefore, I wanted to share this recipe as it reminds me of being a child back in Poland, as my mum would often bake us a Leśny Mech cake! 

Making Leśny Mech brings back so many memories, especially because my own daughter now loves to help me in the kitchen, similar to memories enjoyed with my mother growing up. It's a beautiful way to bond and reconnect with my heritage through baking. As for toppings, I usually go for raspberries but you can get creative and use Pomegranates or Berries instead. It's all about personal preference and what you have at home!
