WHAT IS ‘PANCAKE’
A pancake is a thin, flat, round cake prepared from batter, and cooked on a hot griddle or frying pan. Depending on the regions, pancakes may be served at any time of the day, with a variety of toppings such as jams, maple syrup, honey, chocolate syrup, chocolate chip, ice-cream, etc. … yummmmyyyy!!!
REGIONAL VARIETIES : DIFFERENT NAMES & TYPES OF PANCAKE
France : Crepes (Thin pancake usually served with sweet or savory filling)
Germany : Pfannkuchen, Kaiserschmarrn (A light, caramelized pancake that is split into pieces, filled with fruit and/or nuts, sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with a fruit sauce)
The Netherlands : Poffertjes, Pannenkoeken (usually eaten during dinner, it is slightly ticker than crepes and usually quite large. Filling can include sliced apple, cheese, ham, bacon, candied ginger, etc.)
Sweden : Scandinavian pancake, Pannkakor, Raggmunk, Aggakaka (also called eggcake, which is a lot thicker & difficult to make due to the risk of burning it)
