the best excuse to eat cake for breakfast.

Since I had strawberries and whipped cream I figured I’d make pancakes this morning. And they were yum. So I wondered, pancakes where’d they originate?
Archaeological evidence suggests that varieties of pancakes are probably the earliest and most widespread types of cereal food eaten in prehistoric societies whereby dry carbohydrate-rich seed flours mixed with the available protein-rich liquids, usually milk and eggs, were baked on hot stones or in shallow earthenware pots over an open fire to form a nutritious and highly palatable foodstuff.”
The first time that a pancake was mentioned was in an old Middle English culinary manuscript from 1430. The Greeks however were said to come up with the first pancake type food called a Tagenites. Tagenites were made with wheat flour, olive oil, honey and curdled milk, and were served for breakfast.
and just in case you want to make your own, heres a lil recipe :
1 c. flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
3 tbsp. sugar
1 c. milk
1 egg
1/2 tsp. salt
Yum! Old school foods and hungry Greeks! Yay pancakes!
