Apple Cinnamon Mint Flapjacks




About: Part of instructables community for almost a decade. Love everything diy.

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

    That sounds sooo tasty! I love the apple, cinnamon, mint flavor profile. In pancake just makes it even better! Thanks for sharing!

    These sound and look amazing! Thanks for the recipe and the clarification of the difference between the two types of pancakes! I wouldn't have thought to combine those ingredients, especially in a pancake, but now that you've got me thinking about it, it sounds delicious! I can't wait to try these, great work.
