A pancake is a flat cake, often thin and round, prepared from a starch-based batter that may contain eggs, milk and butter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan, often frying with oil or butter. Archaeological evidence suggests that pancakes were probably the earliest and most widespread cereal food eaten in prehistoric societies.
Pancakes must be fluffy, soft and delicious. I tried so many prepared pancake mix but I really wanted to do one from scratch. Believe me this recipe is the best recipe I have ever tried!
