The History

Paul’s axemen ate so many flap-jacks the cook, couldn’t supply the demand. Ole, the Blacksmith, made a griddle so large you couldn’t see across it when the smoke was thick. Sourdough Sam had fifty men with pork rinds tied to their feet skating around the griddle to grease it. The batter was mixed in large barrels and it took a strong cook just to turn the flapjacks, let alone get them to the table.W

I love pancakes. I love Paul Bunyan stories.

I could eat breakfast all day. Pancakes were always a treat growing up, when we were lucky, my father would make pancakes for dinner. They always came out perfect and sometimes we would get Mickey Mouse-shaped ones. Today I carry on the tradition, adding in a variety of concoctions playing, and experimenting. Like chocolate chip and chocolate syrup with strawberries.
