History of the Pancake
The earliest known references to pancakes come from the works of the 5th-century BC poets Cratinus and Magnes. They were made with wheat flour, olive oil, honey, and curdled milk, and were served for breakfast. Researchers have found pancakes in the stomach of Otzi the Iceman, human remains dating back about 5,300 years. Archiloligst has found evidence that humans have been grinding wheat flour and cooking pancakes for nearly 30,000 years.
Pancakes come in many different shapes, sizes and flavors. They can be sweet, savory, thick, thin, small or large, but they are all delicious!
