Potato pancakes appeared when Lithuanians began to grow potatoes. These pancakes were usually made from grated or mashed potatoes. The rules of baking potato pancakes were the same as for regular pancakes, i.e. the pancakes were to be made with yeast, baked throughout the size of the pan, "be large and round like the sun." Traditionally, they were served with chicken cracklings or cowberries jam.
