there's written pancake. btw, pancake flavoured... bullshit. cupcake is cupcake, why should it be flavoured?! if they wanted the pancakes, they would make them, i don't see the purpose of pancake flavour.

"Bullshit" indeed. He wrote "Pancake cupcake." Which I would interpret as a pancake-flavored cupcake, however bizarre that seems. I suppose it's made with pancake batter. Which does make the combination a bit less bizarre, since pancakes with bacon is a common breakfast, although I'd still want to know what flavor the frosting on the cupcakes is - perhaps whipped cream. Pancakes and cupcakes are not interchangeable: one's a breakfast item, the other's for dessert.

That looks like a crêpe. Which I like to annoy people by pronouncing the French way. Most people here would think of crêpes as French, and some might call them "French pancakes."

An American pancake is thicker.

Cupcakes and Muffins are different.....and now we have Gourmet Cupcakes.....most major towns and cities have at least one Cupcake shop or Bakery with a large cupcake section.

I think most of non-US world considers crêpe just a type of pancake. As Wikipedia has it: Depending on the region, pancakes may be served at any time, with a variety of toppings or fillings including jam, chocolate chips, fruit, syrup or meat. In Russia you can fill it with anything imaginable and there's even a fast food chain specializing in crêpes (and a few other chains where they represent a large part of the menu)

Pandekage/ Palacsinta call them whatever you like, although I ´ve never tried it with bacon. Fahéjas cukor, azt szeretem!

Sure. We call it "palacsinta". But in Hungary it is usually served and eaten rolled:

Or at least wrapped (it is more noble this way but common people usually role it):

Of course it is filled by chocolate, marmelade, etc, even is you can't see it in these pictures :-) I like it soooo much :-)

Ever tasted a pancake cake?


My girlfriend surprised me one day with this

In Romania we call them clătite and thez are similar with the French crêpe. They are usually served rolled and filled with marmelade or chocolate (+fruits sometimes).

I would try that. I'm a meat-man so it surely doesn't taste that bad.

About pancakes:
This one I like, stuffed with forest fruits and a lot of cream

Vive la France ! (rolleyes)

And talking of pancakes/crêpes and Chez Cora, if memory serves, they (in French) use the word "crêpe" for North American, thick pancakes. What I'd call a "crêpe," they call a "crêpe française."
