Tasty Tuesday: National Pancake Day in Lake County

Who doesn’t enjoy a buttery, fluffy, syrupy stack of flippin’ flapjacks?

Today is National Pancake Day, so you should indulge your taste buds in Lake County.

It’s interesting, because everyone has their own rendition of this sweet breakfast treat. There’s versions of pancakes in each continent (with I think the exception is Antarctica).

Pancakes are said in multiple sources that the dish ages back to 30,000 years ago.

But enough of the historical mumbo jumbo, you want some pancakes – and we will supply you with a list of delicious options around Lake County for the holiday we love so dear. National Pancake Day in Lake County
