A pancake is a flat cake, often thin and round, prepared from a starch-based batter that may contain eggs, milk, and butter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan, often frying with oil or butter.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.

Who made the first pancake? While some suggest that Ötzi the Iceman was eating einkorn wheat in an early sort of flatbread form, most food historians say that the earliest pancake-like dish, known as Alita Dolcia ("another sweet" in Latin), was made by Romans in the 1st century from milk, flour, egg, and spices.
Pancakes were so-called for a reason. They are cakes and they are cooked in pans.
On pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, and more, Americans love maple syrup. The rich flavor is one reason why it's so popular, but it has also been touted as a "natural" sweetener that's better for you than plain old sugar.
The minute your fork starts exploring that stack of fluffy pancakes, adventuring from one ring to the next; soft like a pillow, spongy like a bed, a pancake activates every sense of yours, making you smile uncontrollably. Maple syrup, chocolate syrup and strawberry coulis... OMG... it’s irresistible!
