Pancakes has quite a funny essay o­n Pancakes written by Brian Reid. It includes this:

The two styles of pancakes could be called thick and thin, leavened and unleavened, cakelike or cr?pelike. In England and Ireland and the antipodes, a pancake is as thin as you can make it, and usually rolled up for serving. In North America and Scotland, a pancake is thick, light, and fluffy, usually served in stacks of 3, and would break in two if you tried to roll it up.

I had to read the whole thing through a couple of times as I could not be certain that it was not a piece of wicked satire sending up the Windsor Report reception process. I'm still not 100% sure.
