Komm Morgen Wieder

Komm Morgen Wieder

This is a Latvian Specialty.  I have searched to find out the origin of the name without any success.  All I know is that the Latvians that left Latvia in the 40’s call them “Komm Morgen Wieder” which means “come back tommorow” in German, and the Latvians that stayed in Latvia call them “Pildītas pankūkas” which means “filled crepes” in Latvian.
If anyone knows, please enlighten me!!!
