Combine a little eggs, flour, milk and baking soda to magically create a simple food which can be enjoyed anytime of the day. Pancakes were an early American staple and are still as loved for breakfast as is bacon and eggs. Add a few blueberries, pecans, bananas or strawberries and you get some very fancy cakes. Top with whipped cream and it becomes dessert for breakfast. Even football players host “pancake night” to raise money for various causes.
The simple pancake is know by many names in the USA such as hotcakes, griddlecakes, johnnycakes and flapjacks. The early American prospectors lived off of sourdough pancakes and bread and as they panned for gold. It took just a little flour and water to keep the natural yeast alive. Today the sourdough pancake is a favorite meal in Alaska.
Named after the US silver dollar coin, we celebrate the silver dollar pancake with our Garden Bugs Griddle Pan and Barnyard Animals Pan. The shapes add fun and no one can resist a plate of mini pancakes topped with Vermont maple syrup. They can also be frozen for an instant breakfast during the week.
“Come, thou shant go home, and we’ll have flesh for holidays, fish for fasting-days, and moreo’er puddings and flap-jacks, and thou shalt be welcome.”
