Introduction: Apple Cinnamon Mint Flapjacks
Flapjack vs. Pancake? Since I wanted to make flapjacks, I decided I needed to know what makes something a flapjack instead of a pancake. After some search and asking around my conclusion is that they are basically the same thing – except a flapjack is usually known as a thicker variety of pancake. Perfect, since my pancakes are usually of the short and fluffy, thick variety anyways.
i made both.. pancakes and flapjacks
