March 8 Is National Pancake Day
Tuesday, March 8 is National Pancake Day. 2016 is the 11th anniversary of this culinary celebration. The International House of Pancakes is offering a free stack of Buttermilk Pancakes from 7 AM to 7 PM, to encourage diners to make a charitable contribution to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Did you ever wonder why a pancake is called a pancake? Because you’re literally baking a cake in a pan. Experienced cooks call a pan, a skillet. The more baking powder you add, the more your pancake will rise. It will have the look, and the texture of cake.
For those who don’t have ovens, the pancake offers a quick and easy way to have your cake and eat it too. Add favorite toppings, like blueberries, or molasses, to enhance the flavor.
