What Are Pancakes?

Generally speaking, pancakes are batter-based breads that are cooked on a hot surface. The batter is made from starch and can contain eggs, milk, or butter.

American-style pancakes

Usually served with butter and maple syrup, American-style pancakes are soft and fluffy. They are also known as griddle cakes or flapjacks. They are often served in stacks.

To make a good pancake, start by combining all the dry ingredients in a bowl. The dry ingredients include flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Mix the ingredients together with a hand whisk. If you want to make pancakes that are extra fluffy, you can add an egg.

The secret to good pancakes is to use a non-stick pan and to cook the pancakes on medium heat. A wide frying pan is ideal. To grease the pan, you can use butter or oil. You can also use parchment paper to separate the pancakes.

Before cooking, whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Then, gently fold them into the batter. You can also add a pinch of sea salt to the whites.


Whether you are at home or dining out, crepes are an easy and tasty breakfast. They can be savory or sweet, filled with whatever you please. These French artisanal treats have a buttery taste and crisp edges.

You can serve them as is, or add toppings to them like fruit sauce or whipped cream. You can even fold them into a triangular shape.

A good way to start is by combining the eggs, flour, and milk in a large bowl. You may want to whisk the ingredients by hand to avoid lumps. The best results come from high quality ingredients.

Once the ingredients are mixed together, you can either pour the batter into a skillet, or make it in the blender. The blender will produce a smoother batter.

For the best results, you should use a non-stick skillet. A non-stick pan will ensure that the crepes cook evenly.

Scotch pancakes

Traditionally, Scotch pancakes are served with butter, jam and curd. The batter is left to rest for 10 minutes before cooking. This allows the ingredients to blend well together.

Traditional Scotch pancakes are light and fluffy. They are usually eaten as a teatime snack. They can be served hot, at room temperature or even frozen for later. They can be topped with butter and jam, or a mixture of jam, chocolate chips and nutella.

Scotch pancakes are very easy to make. They are perfect for breakfasts, brunches, afternoon teas and even Shrove Tuesday. You can add your favorite toppings and enjoy them at any time.

Scotch pancakes are made with flour, eggs and sugar. They are similar to American pancakes, but they are a little sweeter. You can serve them with butter, jam or raspberry sauce. You can also freeze them for up to three months.

Welsh pancakes

Traditionally, Welsh pancakes are eaten with butter and honey or jam. However, they can also be topped with chocolate sauce and curds. Modern toppings include lemon curd with mascarpone, banana, and ice cream.

Welsh pancakes have been around for centuries. Their origin is thought to be in north Wales. In the past, the recipe was made with yeast, but nowadays, most recipes use bicarbonate of soda as a raising agent. The result is a thicker, less sweet pancake than the American variety.

Traditional Welsh pancakes are made using a griddle or ‘planc’. Griddle or planc is a flat surface that is usually oiled or covered in spray oil. In recent years, a heavy frying pan has replaced the griddle. It should be heated to a medium heat. It should also be dusted with caster sugar.
