|Did You Know?
or Canadian pancakes (sometimes called hotcakes, griddlecakes, or
flapjacks in the U.S.) are Scotch pancakes which contain a raising
agent such as baking powder; proportions of eggs, flour, and milk or
buttermilk create a thick batter. Sugar and spices such as cinnamon,
vanilla and nutmeg are added. This batter is ladled or poured onto a
hot surface, and spreads to form a circle about ¼ or 1/3 inch (1
cm) thick. The raising agent causes bubbles to rise to the uncooked
side, when the pancake is flipped. These pancakes, very light in
texture, are served at breakfast topped with syrup, butter, peanut
butter, jelly, jam, fruit or honey. In the Southern United States, cane
syrup and molasses have also been common toppings. Some pancake recipes
call for yogurt to give the pancakes a moist consistency.
North American pancakes can be made sweet or savory by adding
ingredients such as blueberries, strawberries, cheese, bacon, bananas,
apples or chocolate chips to the batter. In addition, some recipes add
spices such as nutmeg or cinnamon, or flavoring agents such as vanilla
extract. A "silver dollar" pancake refers to a pancake about three
inches (7 cm) in diameter — these are served in portions of five or ten.
