Flapjacks are arguably the most exciting thing about gourmet breakfasts and there are endless possibilities for toppings which could swing either way - sweet or savoury.

Flapjacks and pancakes are two very similar mini cakes and people often confuse the two. In different parts of the world the word flapjack is used to refer to a pancake and vice versa but in South Africa they are different treats. The flapjack is like the American pancake and the pancake is like the French crêpe .

The major difference is that a flapjack is usually sweeter than the pancake and it’s a lot more dense, fluffy and much thicker than the thin, floppy pancake.

Making a flapjack is very easy, quick and there’s so much room to get creative!
