Did you know?
We often think of Flapjacks (or pancakes) as being a pioneer or gold rush era food. However, American Cookery, published in 1796—has two recipes for pancakes, one for “Johny Cake, or Hoe Cake,”. According to Betty Crocker, brandy and wine had been common ingredients until 1800, when milk and occasionally cream become the preferred liquids for pancake batter. In the 1870s the flapjack becomes known as the pancake!
