FASCINATING FLAPJACK FACTS
Flapjacks are thin “rounds” of cornbread batter fried in a greased skillet on top of the stove.
Flapjacks are also known as corn cakes, fried cornbread, griddlecakes, and hoecakes.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word “flapjack” was used as early as the beginning of the 16th century. During that time, it was very likely a flat tart.
It is uncertain as to what the “jack” in flapjack means. However, it very likely refers to the small size of a flapjack. Back then, “jack” meant something was smaller than normal.
