Pancakes began over 30,000 years ago during the Stone Age, being a simple yet popular savory dessert to share with your family, friends or to keep for yourself :). In ancient Greece and Rome, pancakes were made from wheat flour, olive oil, honey, and curdled milk. Today we have a wide range of delicious options such as traditional stack with melted butter to the decadent pancakes with ice cream, maple syrup and fruit.
