Pancakes with maple syrup are the typical American breakfast on weekends. They are made with eggs, milk, and flour and served with maple syrup, honey, jam, or fresh fruit. (My children would rather slather them with Nutella).

The legendary pancake recipe was not born in the Anglo-Saxon world and the USA, but it has a deep and historical origin, like Halloween and other things.

It seems that the pancakes have come down to us from ancient Greece.

Around 500 BC, Magnete and Cratino (two famous playwriters) even referred to this food in their works.

At that time, pancakes were called “teganites“; it took the name of the pan inside which they were cooked, starting from a mixture of oil, flour, honey, and cheese.

Then they arrived in Northern Europe and finally landed in the United States of America, where today pancakes are the typical American breakfast dish.

Many Greek traditions and recipes were assimilated by the Romans. It is documented that the patricians loved the “Alica Dolcia, “a version enriched with the spices of the Greek Gigantes. According to ancient recipes, no yeast was used (contrary to the American recipe).

The word “pancake” is rather unique. It appears for the first time in the fifteenth century within a document written in English. Since the Middle Ages, this sweet has been eaten throughout Europe and Russia.

In the Netherlands, pannekoek is eaten very similar to American pancakes and served with icing sugar.

Ingredients

Instructions

    • Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
    • Add the egg, the milk, and sunflower oil and mix everything.
    • Do NOT overmix if you want pancakes to be fluffy. If you over-mix the batter, you will have tough, unfluffy pancakes.
    • Heat your frying pan or skillet to medium and pour the batter on a lightly oiled pan.
    • Don’t flip your pancakes too soon.
    • When you see the bubbles starting to pop, flip that pancake over!
