How do yours Look?

Hello Everyone,

Ok, back to food again.
Lately 1 sort of food keeps peaking around my door:

Pancakes.

So, what about pancakes?
We asked it our best friend and got this:

 
“A pancake is a thin, flat, round cake prepared from
a batter, and cooked on a hot griddle or frying pan.”
So.. food it is, like we all knew, obviously.

Pancakes are made all over the world,
and also eaten all over the world… handy.
Pancakes  are served at any time with a lot of different
variety of toppings from jam to meat, depending on the region.
All the varieties of pancakes make the pancakes popular to a wide audience.
Archaeologists think that the pancake is probably the earliest
and widespread type of cereal food eaten in the prehistorical societies.
Which is quite something for our pancake, isn’t it?

Not only the toppings have a wide variation,
also the shape of the pancake and structure varies worldwide.
There already are numerous variations
of them throughout Europe.

In Germany pancakes are made from potatoes,
“pfannkuchen”.
The Frances make “crêpes”.
In the Netherlands they have the “pannekoek”
that are thicker and larger than the France pancakes.
In the Scandinavian countries you have “Pannkakor”
which are kinda alike the France once again tho with different toppings.

Well, as you probably already saw:
A lot is possible.

So now, my question to you, as maybe you already guessed.
How about your pancake.

What do they look like and when are they eaten?

    Well, my pancake is thin, like the french ones (usually), and i have everything from just sugar, to strawberries, to meat, to spinach ontop of them, tho usually at home we just make it plane and simple with sugar or jam :3

    tho after some recent inspiration i will probably try some more varied stuff at home too 😀

    they are eaten at dinner, usually i roll it up and either eat it with knife and fork or just by hand, tho if i have meat or a more complex pancake i eat it flat with knife and fork 🙂

    i thought the thicker pancakes were more american? well, atleast that’s what i connect them too 😛 tho i may ofcourse be totally wrong 😛

    thanks for a yummy post :3

      Hey,
      Thanks for letting me know more about your pancake :).
      And in America they do have thicker pancakes, tho a lot smaller then the French pancakee.
      Sometimes posts make you hungry, don’t they?
      Then think about where I have to get through writing them down :P.
      Greetz, MMasing.
