National Pancake Day is a holiday that Americans love so much that it is celebrated twice a year. September 26 is the second day on the calendar when you can make pancakes and treat friends, neighbors, and colleagues.
Pancakes are one of the oldest dishes on the planet. They were prepared in ancient Greece, and the recipe has since evolved, with various variations of cooking and fillings appearing. Different types of flour are used as the main component – wheat, rice, or corn. Cow or coconut milk is also added. The filling can be sweet or salty. Probably, there is no country where they do not know what pancakes are. They are even made from bananas!
