My friend, who’s an international student, just called pancakes “flapjacks.” Is it just the name, or are “flapjacks” different? What’s the difference between flapjacks and pancakes?
What’s The Difference Between Flapjacks And Pancakes?
Depends on where you are – In the US and Canada, you can use flapjacks and pancakes interchangeably, but in the UK they’re totally different food.
“Flapjacks” in the UK refer to a bar made of oats, similar to a granola bar and not a flat batter like pancakes.
