National Pancake Day

'They're selling like hotcakes!' Pancakes, also known as flapjacks or griddle cakes ...or Dutch Baby, are a popular breakfast item in North America. There are even whole restaurant chains with pancake in their name (you know who I'm talkin' 'bout). When a food has its own figure of speech, you know it's worthy of an official day of recognition!
