BerlinerYou will get a traditional „Berliner” at the Karneval Party:

Berliner Pfannkuchen sind ein traditionelles Gebäck bevorzugt am Rosenmontag und Faschingsdienstag.

Einer populären Legende nach wurden Berliner Pfannkuchen im Jahr 1756 von einem Berliner Zuckerbäcker erfunden.

In großen Teilen Norddeutschlands, von Mecklenburg über Schleswig-Holstein und Niedersachsen bis nach Westfalen und dem Rheinland sowie in Teilen der Pfalz, in Teilen Baden-Württembergs (vor allem im Westen), im Saarland und in der Deutschschweiz werden sie „Berliner“ genannt. Im Bereich Ruhrgebiet/Sauerland/Niederrhein selten auch „Berliner Ballen“. In Aachen heißt der Berliner Pfannkuchen „Puffel“.
