Pain à la grecque

The pain à la grecque (literally "Greek bread") is a typical Brussels pastry consisting of a simple rectangle of milk bread, brown sugar, and cinnamon sprinkled with granulated sugar.[1]

The name does not refer to Greece, but is derived from "grecht", the Brussels Word for Canal.
