for starters, when referring to a plural in polish, you don't add an "s" on the end, as the "i" that finishes the word signifies the plural term. hence - one gołąb, or multiple gołąbki. adding an "s" on the end is anglicising the word.
as i said, it's like writing "nockie" for gnocchi.
i'm not saying i'm the be all and end all on the topic (far from it, i've only made them a handful of times in my life!) but i can say with 100% certainty that the spelling in this instance is dead set wrong.
as far as recipes, there are many variations i'm sure.
i'm not having a go at anyone, no need to get defensive. i'm just trying to point out a cultural oversight.
