Special pancakes for prominent guests
If you are a guest of Copenhagen Town Hall, you most likely will try one of their special pancakes. There is a a longstanding tradition of serving prominent guests and sports stars the so-called 'rådhuspandekager' – 'town hall pancakes'. It's a pancake filled with an orange cream, rolled and with a top layer consisting of apricot jam and baked almonds.
The tradition can be traced back to 1928, and the pancakes have been served to a range of prominent visitors – from the Danish football team when they won the European Championship in 1992 and to Ethiopia's former emperor Haile Selassie.
