History Of Pancakes
Although pancakes are highly popular even today, they have quite a long and interesting history. It seems that pancakes were first mentioned in print back in 1430, but according to some sources they were in existence much before that. According to these sources, people of the Neolithic period were making some sort of pancakes using a stone and a campfire.
Much later, Greeks and Romans had their own dishes that resembled modern pancakes in many ways but were not pancakes as we came to know and love them today. Pancakes from the medieval period were made from barley or rye and were certainly not as fluffy as what we are accustomed today.
In the modern world, pancakes have become a part of traditional American breakfast. Easy and quick to prepare and yet very tasty and filling, the pancakes have fallen nicely in line with the overall American lifestyle.
