Aren't they just really thin pancakes?
I have no idea what this food is.
A crepe is effete pancake. Yes.
Wiki says yes, and therefore it must be true.
Either way, they're delicious.
Zeeze are zee French pancake. Very French.
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.
But I read it on the internet, so it must be!
Are potato pancakes canon?
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.
Crepes are yummy.
For I have spoken.
Isn't this kind of debate better suited for the Senate?
It tastes like a pancake, therefore crepes is a pancake.
Basic pancake recipes have:
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.
CrÃªpes are my favourite ? and they are not pancakes! Afterall, go to any good crÃªperie in QuÃ©bec and there will be dinner crÃªpes and dessert crÃªpes ? and I?ve never heard of dinner pancakes or dessert pancakes. It?s just not the same!
I am suspicious that the e in crepes feels it needs to wear that hat. What is it hiding?
Its french nature?
edit -- bad typos!
No, beezel is not a pancake.
