Pancakes Around the World
While most people know about cultural contributions to the pancake world, such as the newly popular Dutch mini pancakes, fluffy Japanese pancakes, and super thin French crepe pancakes, they might be surprised to learn how many different types exist outside the kind we eat most in America. The American pancake, which is made from a basic recipe of flour, sugar, eggs, milk, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Frequently served with maple syrup and breakfast meats like bacon or sausage, this is what most people expect when they come to our South County breakfast and lunch café for pancakes. British pancakes are thinner than American-style pancakes, as they do not use baking powder to get that extra lift. Scotch pancakes, which are also known as drop scones, add cream of tartar to increase thickness.
The pancakes served in Russia are known as blinis and are made from buckwheat and yeast. They are served with savory toppings, such as sour cream or caviar. In Morocco, their pancakes are also savory and are made into square shapes with wheat and semolina flour. Irish boxty pancakes are made with – you might have guessed – potatoes and are served as a snack or a side dish with a meal. Two more savory pancakes from Korea and Italy. The Korean variety includes rice and green onions with its ingredients, while the Italian style is thin like a crepe and is stuffed with meat or cheese. Australian pancakes are similar to American pancakes but are made small and use icing sugar in the batter for a sweet treat. The popular German Dutch Baby pancakes are served in some places throughout the United States and are frequently topped with fresh fruit and powdered sugar.
