Today, September 26th is National Pancake Day! Pancakes are also referred to as hotcakes, griddlecakes or flapjacks. So where did this delicious food we all love to eat come from? Well, they actually date all the way back to the ancient Greeks in the 6th century. Archaeological evidence even suggests that pancakes are possibly the earliest breakfast food eaten in prehistoric society.

Two Weird pancake superstitions:

  • In Provence, if you hold a coin in your left hand while you toss a pancake, you’ll be rich
  • It’s always regarded as bad luck to let a pancake on the floor while tossing it

Pancakes are made all over the world in all different shapes and forms. In Germany they are made out of potatoes and are very thin and light. In South Africa they are filled with lemon juice and sugar. You can pretty much put anything you want in a pancake. In America we’re probably must used to chocolate chips, blueberries, strawberries and nuts. And don’t forget the butter and syrup! (Bacon or sausage on the side doesn’t hurt either) But, in some parts of the world they are eaten for dinner and filled with ground meat, onions or even cheese.

Since today is National Pancake Day Perkins’ restaurants are giving away free short stacks. In return, they are hoping that customers will donate to Give Kids The World Village. It is a resort located in Florida that provides cost-free vacations for children with life threatening illnesses and their families. Click here to find out where the closest Perkins is to you! If unfortunately there isn’t a Perkins located within reasonable distance to you, you can always visit http://www.gktw.org/ and donate to Give Kids The World Village. Come out enjoy some pancakes and donate a great cause!
