Pancakes have long been a staple in Wales and their taste and texture not only differs regionally throughout Wales, but so does their name. For instance, in Glamorgan pancakes were known as "ffroes", whereas in north Wales they were known as "crempogau". They are quite different to the crepes and fluffy American pancakes that we eat today. These pancakes were usually made on a bakestone however if you don't have a bakestone to hand, a dry cast iron pan or heavy frying pan will also do the trick.
Traditionally in Wales, pancakes were made on a bakestone. These have become popular again and are easy to pick up in high street cooking supply shops.
