Heart-shaped pancakes



30 MIN.


The Lithuanians from the region of Lithuania Minor took the custom to fry heart-shaped pancakes from the Germans more than 100 years ago, and called them "Waffles". Written sources say that this dish was created in the Rhine region in the Middle Ages as soon as special pans appeared with a honeycomb-shaped ornament. The Lithuanians fried these pancakes for afternoon snack, for dinner and served with jam, ate them with "kafija" beverage (coffee) or "tija" (tea). Currently pancakes are baked in the whole Lithuania and are called heart-shaped pancakes.
