National Pancake Day!

The laziest man I ever met put popcorn in his pancakes so they would turn over by themselves. -W.C. Fields

Today, March 4th is national pancake day!! National pancake day was started by IHOP in 2006. Just because IHOP started this holiday is no reason that you can't celebrate by yourself! Join in the festivities by making pancakes from scratch, from box, or buying some at a restaurant.

Here are some links to yummy pancake recipes!

The wikipedia article on pancakes describes pancakes as follows:

pancake, also known as a hotcake or flapjack (in North America) is a flat cake, often thin, flat, and round, prepared from a starch-based batter and cooked on a hot surface such as griddle or frying pan. In Britain it is often made without a raising agent, and is similar to a crêpe. In America, a raising agent is used (typically baking powder). The American pancake is similar to a Scotch pancake or drop scone.
