Initially, National Pancake Day was called Lumberjack Day often referenced as ‘eat like a lumberjack day. This holiday is celebrated annually on 26th September.

The pancakes are round, made with milk, thick batter, flour, and eggs. Different regions have improved their recipe; the American pancakes have an addition of raising agents which makes them thicker than the standard British crepes.

Other recipes include Applesauce, pumpkin, buttermilk, pecan and banana with maple butter and lemon blueberry pancakes. The standard pancake measures are 1/3 inches in thickness and 4 inches in diameter.

History of National Pancake Day

Colleen AF and Marianne Ways started national Pancake Day. The duo was looking for justifiable means of eating a lot of pancakes and waffles.

Pancakes are breakfast meals that have been in existence since ancient Greece. In North America, this breakfast is an all-time favorite. It started having a recognizable impact on the community in 2005. As many people loved and adored it, it was not long before it got its recognition. The tradition of mixing up these ingredients is believed to have come from Christians or the pagan ritual which represented the different pillars of their faith.

In Britain and other regions of Europe, the pancakes are called crepe; they are thin and come with a savory topping. Other names for pancakes include, ‘Serabi’ in Indonesia, hotcakes, and flapjacks.

There is also another similar holiday observed as National Pan Cake Day; this is Shrove Tuesday where people get to enjoy a lot of pancakes.
