ahahaha apparently I'm writing a 375-word story about pancake rebellions. because [personal profile] lonespark said over Ana Mardoll way,
Also I feel like "Rebellions are built on (fill-in-the-blank)" could be a good writing prompt?

"Some rebellions, they say, are built on hope. That might be true, but if I had to pin it down I'd say this one was built on a fanatical devotion to high-quality pancakes."
and someone said "I would read that" and I observed I'd just upthread advertised my fiction sale so "Pay me; one pancake rebellion coming right up!" and someone who perhaps desires to remain unnamed dropped $15 in my Paypal.

...shit what exactly makes a high-quality pancake. (Not Bisquick! Which is possibly all I've ever used.) [personal profile] madgastronomer? *pokes Google*

ETA: I wrote the thing. Lemme make sure it's good and then I'll post it.

Which culture are you writing in? Different cultures have different pancakes...

Could do, but in the USA you have both british and french (oh, and dutch) pancake influences, so you kind of have the makings of a pancake war of independence!

And a buckwheat one...

But I wouldn't put baking powder in. Or vanilla. Or Malted Milk powder...

Crepes are crepes, which are different from pancakes.

But I still wouldn't use those ingredients for English pancakes...

I'm going to generally agree with your uncle here, although I've never had pancakes with malted milk before.

Qualities of a good US-style pancake: loft or fluffiness, tenderness, flavor.

Not personally a fan of buckwheat, but definitely a valid choice.

ooooooooooooooooo

also: belatedly, I was going to say a good inspiration for a pancake rebellion is either (a) it is fuel for the rebel forces; (b) some sort of pancake brand with Aunt-Jemima type racist a advertising? I don't know

I am very excite to see what you came up with!
