Why not pancakes for dinner?


Why do most Americans eat pancakes only for Breakfast?  During the American Revolution, it was traditional to serve pancakes during dinner.  The pancakes were crepe-like and consumed in the early afternoon.  In the 1780s, cooks started adding a rising agent, pearl ash or now called baking soda, that transformed the pancakes into a thick and fluffy filling meal.  This enabled frontier cooks to have a break equivalent on the breakfast tables before the morning farm work began.  The thicker pancakes never really caught on as dinner food.  Change this perception and join Troop 107 for their 3rd Annual All-You-Can-Eat Pancake Dinner.

Troop 107 will be serving it annual pancake dinner from 5-8:00 p.m. on Friday, April 12th at Christ UMC, 318 N. Union Street, Westfield.  The community is invited to attend this meal, all proceeds will go to Troop 107 for equipment budget and scout funds.

Pancakes and sausage will be served by the boys of Troop 107.
