A pancake is a flat cake, often thin and round, prepared from a starch-based batter that contains eggs, milk and butter, cooked on a hot surface (griddle or frying pan) with oil or butter.
The pancake’s shape and structure varies worldwide. In the United Kingdom, pancakes are often unleavened. In North America, a leavening agent is used (baking powder) creating a thick fluffy pancake. A crêpe is a thin Breton pancake of French origin cooked on both sides in a special pan. When buttermilk is used in place of or in addition to milk, the pancake has got a tart flavor (buttermilk pancake).
Pancakes may be served at any time of the day or year with a variety of toppings or fillings. In North America, they are typically considered a breakfast food and serve a similar function to waffles.
