In Sweden they call them plattar, in Russia they are blinis, in England they are called flapjacks, but here in America they are pancakes.
Pancakes are know for being a great tasting hot breakfast dish, served with butter, syrup, honey or fruit. When making your pancake batter, remember not to over beat your batter. Instead gently combine the ingredients together, this way your pancakes will turn out just moist enough to soak up the butter and syrup. Also only turn them once, when the pancake starts to bubble.
