Kinds of pancakes Mon, 02/25/08 10:57 AM (permalink)
Here in New Mexico, we have blue corn pancakes. I know there are also kinds like whole wheat, buckweat, etc.

Also pancakes themselves have different names: griddle cakes, johnny cakes (I think this is the same), flapjacks, etc.

What other names and types of pancakes do you know about?

        Buttermilk pancakes are my fav, slightly tangy, so the sweetness of the syrup comes out.

        I also really like chocolate chip pancakes, spread with peanut butter and drizzled with syrup

            Back in the day-before she went off to prison- Martha Stewart had a receipe for an eggy yeasty pancake. It was great! Have made it several times. But it has to sit in fridge overnight to rise and get light and fluffy- just make sure the bowl is big enough to handle the amount of batter- second time I made it, I doubled the receipe but not the container- You guessed it! my husband woke me on Sunday AM- saying "Not sure what's supposed to be in the bowl in the fridge- but it's trying to escape". It was like a scene from I Love Lucy- the batter was everywhere!

                  In our house it was always Johnny Cakes, made with Jiffy corn bread mix. I still prefer them to buttermilk pancakes any day.

                    Actually, pancakes and flapjacks aren't the same at all. Flapjacks are a larger diameter and thinner, with some crispy outer edges on 'em.
                    I love flapjacks wayyy more than pancakes! (with the edges blackened!)

                      My taste is just the opposite. My wife likes thin pancakes too..almost like creapes....and she always burns those edges. I like mine thicker and more fluffy!

                          What about crepes?

                          Other names - journey cakes, hoecakes, and *cakes - where the * is replaced with the main ingrediant - corncakes, oatcakes

                            Journey cakes, or johnny cakes, and hoe cakes are not the same as pancakes. They are just a type of cornbread cooked on something flat.

                              Same here Michael. Hoecakes are thick cornbread cakes cooked in the skillet or deep pan. Johnny cakes are small cakes about 2 1/2" to 3" round cooked flat or fried.

                                I think what you are referring to is called a "Pannekoekun". Obviously, I may have spelled it wrong! We used to have a chain of these "Pannekoekun Huis'" in the Twin Cities and I adored them! My favorite was the Apple Pannekoekun, it had bits of apple in the batter and was served with a scoop of cinnamon ice cream. Come to think of it, it is less like a crepe because it comes out of the oven inflated and it deflated as the waitress ran it to the table.

                                Now that I think of it my friends mom, who was Scandinavian, made a thin crepe-like pancake and would roll them and serve them with Mrs. Butterworths. I never heard of Mrs. Butterworths before. She called them "skavaars." I haven't had them in thirty years but can remember how good they were.

                                  Not sure about the name...The Original Pancake House calls it the "Dutch Baby"

                                      i had posted a recipe for Dutch Baby recipe. I just learned to make one a few months ago and cannot get enough of them! So far i've just been eating them plain with powdered sugar on top. I LOVE them!

                                        The Dutch Baby looks more like a volcano, hollow in the middle. The pannekeouken isn't indented like that; it just deflates. But they are probably in the same family. By the way, there is one Pannekeouken Huis that I know of in the Twin Cities. (Maplewood). I have a hard time getting my hubby to go there because they used to serve their beverages in mason jars, which he hates. I heard that they don't do that anymore.

                                          For once I have to agree (?) with Mr. Hoffman.......buckwheat flapjacks are my favorite.

                                            I had a friend with a smokehouse who made rightous blueberry pancakes. I couldn't finish a triple-stack and I'm a big eater. These were light, fluffy and about an inch thick.

                                              A good Saturday morning recipe for pancakes is to take any beer you have left over from Friday night and add it to your mix of choice in place of milk or water.... adds a lot to your basic pancake-from-a- box. Dark microbrews have the best flavor, but a light hefeweizen is nice too...

                                                Thin, crisp on the edge potato pancakes for me. I also like buckwheat.

                                                  I wonder, are waffles a kind of pancake?

                                                    Buckwheat pancakes are nice for a change, periodically. They have a hearty, backwoods taste.

                                                    If you can get your hands on some Boysenberry syrup it's "killer bee" on buttermilk pancakes.

                                                      Kirby Lane in Austin does a Killer Pumpkin Pancake that I could eat most every day...or at least until I popped :)

                                                            Have none of you people ever eaten a home made sour dough pancake?  I understand "to each his own" but most people tend to like what I like,  and hands down every person that I've cooked some for acclaimed them their new favorite pancake. 
                                                             
                                                            Imho..   buttermilk pancakes need too much syrup to make edible...  or just suck up too much syrup so as not to be dry. 
                                                             
                                                            Every Sunday while I was growing up my Dad would make breakfast every Sunday.  He said it was just allowing my Mom to get a little extra rest...   but truth was he liked to cook a little.  Most sunday's it was sourdough...   sometimes pancakes, sometimes waffles, and in every blue moon buckwheat sourdoughs. 
                                                             
                                                            There is no special secret to sourdough pancakes.  You just need to make a starter. 
                                                             
                                                            If any one is ever interested give me shout.
