You had better make them quick, though, as they will sell faster than a stack of hotcakes with your youngsters!
Since 1839, the saying: "Selling faster than a stack of hotcakes" has meant “to be in great demand”. You see, hotcakes have always been in demand, as they are quick and easy to make and were most popular at fairs and church socials. They often sold as fast as they could be cooked. Hotcakes are like pancakes, and are called different things in different countries. Pancakes, or whatever you want to call them, remain in high demand today, as a popular breakfast, lunch, and dinner (crepe) menu option.
In Britain, the flapjack (as the focus of this recipe) is a dense, chewy bar cookie baked in a large sheet pan, rather like brownies. The ingredients in British flapjack vary widely, and often include fruit and nuts.
While pancakes, hotcakes, griddlecakes, johnnycakes, blintzes, and the like, are often most commonly cooked on a griddle, these kids' lunch box flapjacks are baked, for a more low fat and healthier version of the original.
They're sure to go faster than you can make 'em!
