    Wiki is not always accurate!

    Therefore, for the sake of argument, I say no. Crepes are made of eggs, pancakes are not. Therefore pancakes =/= crepes.

    Yes, they are. In particular, a British pancake is pretty much a (less authentic) crepe.

    The slightly thicker, less cratered version you Americans insist on nominating a pancake is on this side of the pond either a Scotch pancake or a drop scone.

    It tastes like a pancake, therefore crepes is a pancake.

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

    Basic pancake recipes have:

    flour
    salt
    eggs
    butter
    milk
    sugar
    baking powder

    Basic crepe recipes DON'T have sugar or the baking powder. But they do have water.

    This leads to a completely different texture. They just aren't the same thing.

    Crêpes are my favourite ? and they are not pancakes! Afterall, go to any good crêperie in Québec and there will be dinner crêpes and dessert crêpes ? and I?ve never heard of dinner pancakes or dessert pancakes. It?s just not the same! :p

    I am suspicious that the e in crepes feels it needs to wear that hat. What is it hiding?
