It's Good Friday today, and I am currently in the process of making Struwen. Struwen are a traditional Good Friday recipe where I live. They are essentially slightly sweet yeast pancakes with raisins.

Originally they were a proper Lenten dish, containing none of the forbidden ingredients such as butter or eggs, but over the years, probably even centuries, they have grown into a quite luxurious treat. ;-)
