Pancakes have been around for thousands of years and their popularity has been world-wide. Basic recipes of flour, milk and eggs, that evolved only modestly over the centuries, have now exploded to include almost unlimited possibilities.

Cherry Almond Dutch Pancake

Today, with so many fruits, flours, proteins and oils now available to us, pancakes can be sweet or savory and can be topped or filled with meats, cheeses, vegetables and fruits to add to their charm. Some in Japan add cabbage, some in Uganda add bananas and some in Korea add deep fried fish. The world’s creativity holds few limits.
