So today may be the unofficial National Pancake Day, but we’ll take any excuse to eat this fluffy breakfast staple! The first recorded mention of pancakes dates back to ancient Greece. In the American colonies, pancakes—known as hoe cakes, johnnycakes or flapjacks—were made with buckwheat or cornmeal. Every culture has their own version under different names – from the crepe, to a hotcake or a blini. No matter how you stack them, they’re the perfect blank canvas for any number of toppings and add-ins. To celebrate National Pancake Day we’ve rounded up 16 of our favorite products and recipes.
