National Pancake Day – a day to honor the flat cake breakfast food item. There are several days in the year this day is held on. #PancakeDay
A pancake is a flat cake, often thin and round, prepared from a starch-based batter that may contain eggs, milk and butter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan, often frying with oil or butterWikiPedia
Pancakes are also known as flapjacks or hotcakes.
You can make all kinds of flavor pancakes, sweet, savor, spicy, etc. You can even decorate them like this one below. Check out this Pirate Pancake Recipe!
This foodie holiday is held annually on September 26 of each year. However, there are some other days throughout the year this day is celebrated on too. See below.
The one on September 26th began in 2005 as Lumberjack Day by Marianne Ways and Collen AF Venable. They wanted an excuse to eat pancakes and waffles. (Like you really need one!) It was one week after Talk Like a Pirate Day. How Fitting, I shared the pirate pancake as I was writing this article. They figured eating pancakes was a better holiday than being a Lumberjack.
iHOP (International House of Pancakes) celebrates National Pancake Day on the Second Tuesday of March. They started this holiday in 2006 to raise money for charity. That is when they have specials, usually a free stack of pancakes (just donate to charity). March 10, 2020 is the next occurrence for this day.
So there are several pancake holidays to celebrate throughout the year.
I enjoy listening to nothing but Christian Music. Camping and hiking is something that I enjoy. I guess that is because I am an Eagle Scout. Blogging is something I enjoy doing too. I have been blogging since 2004. However, I have been blogging on Courageous Christian Father since 2012. I am married with 1 daughter and 2 step-sons and a step daughter.
