How To Make Pancakes, A Marvel Of Labor And Science

How To Make Pancakes, A Marvel Of Labor And Science | Somewhat Quirky! | Scoop.it
The pancake--the notion of the pancake as a breakfast food--comes to us from an older time, a slower time, a time before boxed cereal.

Nobody complained about the work that went into making a pancake back then--even though it's a lotta fuggin' work, especially for breakfast--both because their concept of "convenience" began and ended at the luxury of not getting the typhus this week, and also because they hadn't invented language yet.
