Old Fashion Flapjacks

So for those unaware, flapjacks are a relative of the pancake, in whose family also resides crepes and pikelets.

Other names for flapjacks include griddle cakes, hot cakes, flannel cakes or wheat cakes.

Where some pancakes can be quite dense and heavy, flapjacks, which are made with self-raising flour, are on lighter side. More aerated if you will.

So they're very quick to make and use super common ingredients so you won't need to make an emergency trip to the shops.
