What are Pancakes?

Breakfast crepes with orange juice and coffeePancakes are the very old beginnings of bread and pastry. Generally a pancake is any kind of batter, fried or baked in a skillet, on a griddle, or on any hot surface. The peoples of all nationalities have made pancakes from time immemorial. An infinite variety of pancakes have been developed and today pancakes are enjoyed for breakfast, luncheon, dinner and even for dessert. All of The Original Pancake House's formulas and recipes are authentic and were selected from many submitted to us by housewives of the nationality originating the pancakes of their respective countries.

Old-fashioned sourdough yeast, just like your great-grandmother used to use, is used in all of our pancake batters. It is grown in our own kitchen from a culture of potatoes, flour and sugar, activated by a "start of yeast." The sourdough yeast gives light, fine-textured pancakes.
