Why Pancakes are perfect Breakfast?
The Pancake, also known as ‘hotcake, flapjack, or griddlecake. Described as a round, starched based batter that usually contains eggs, butter, and milk cooked over a frying pan, griddle, greased with oil or butter. Archeological evidence states that pancakes might be the earliest widespread ‘cereal’ food eaten in the prehistoric societies. The ingredients and methods of creating pancakes differ from each country. The United Kingdom makes pancakes that are often unleavened and resembles a crepe. North American pancakes are thick from the use of baking powder. In France the Breton pancake is crepe like, these are cooked on one or both sides with a crepe maker and a wooden spatula to spread this around to create a lacework pattern in the pancakes. Another Pancake is the ‘Palacinke’ in Southeast Europe where thin but moist pancakes are fired on both sides and are filled with cream cheese, jam, ground walnuts, chocolate, and many more sweet or savory fillings. Some pancakes are made savory like the scallion pancakes familiarly seen in Chinese cuisine these are generally made more so of dough than batter, these unflavored pancakes version are served alongside ducks and other meats with a savory sauce as a snack or appetizer. In Japan the okonomiyaki, another savory pancake is made with similar pancake ingredients but stuffed with cabbages and ginger with some meats, having a chewy texture topped with okonomiyaki sauce resembling barbeque sauce, and mayonnaise with a sprinkle of spring onions. Japan also has sweet pancake options like the Dorayaki, which are sandwiches of pancakes, filled with red bean or even ice cream inside. Pancakes are so beloved all over the world that there’s even a ‘Pancake day’ associated to the ‘Shrove Tuesday’ in Britain.
