Today is National Pancake Day. Many cultures around the world have their own versions from crepes to blinis, from sweet to savory, filled and flat but they are all delicious. I am particularly fond of the good old American version which needs a hot griddle, butter and syrup. At home I use a sourdough batter and usually make it with either blueberries or a lemon/poppy seed theme.
A fun way to serve pancakes is to use as sort of pigs in a blanket that I have often made for company. Use your taco holders, tuck a small pancake in with a cooked sausage link. Add mustard (butter) and catsup (syrup) and you have a breakfast hot dog!
