These are crêpes from Liège made using buckwheat flour, with raisins inside.

They are traditionally eaten at Christmas with a little mulled wine, or on 15 August in Liège with a little Peket, but may be found in some places in Liège (at Massin or at André; we prefer the ones at Massin) and the recipe is quite simple to make.
