I have no cute stories of an army marching across Europe noshing on a pancake but the pancake is one of our oldest forms of bread. It comes in many different variations and names. Pancakes in one form or another have been served for breakfast, lunch, dinner appetizers and even desserts. The French call theme "Crepes", the Russians have their "Blinis" and even in North America we call them not just pancakes, but "Hotcakes", "Griddlecakes" and my favourite "Flapjacks".
Pancakes have been traditionally served on Shrove Tuesday to celebrate renewal and family life. A pancake and a hope for good fortune are an age old custom. In France, it is customary to hold the handle of the frying pan, a coin in the other hand and while turning the pancake, make a wish. (Use a pot holder for the handle!)
TexMex Breakfast Pancakes

Chocolate Espresso Pancakes
2 Cups flour
Mix your dry ingredients and add your
liquid (except the chocolate & espresso, mix these together).
Mix until smooth. When your mix has settled, take your chocolate
& espresso mix and swirl it into the batter. Marble the
mixture (don't mix). Ladle onto a hot griddle. This pancake
is great with regular syrup.
