Robie's Buttermilk Flapjacks

Hot, crispy-edged flapjacks paired with strong, steaming coffee make a staple camp breakfast. Serve these with extra butter and plenty of maple syrup.André Baranowski

The terms pancake and flapjack are used interchangeably; the "flap" in the name refers to the sound the cake makes when it lands in the skillet once it's flipped. This recipe comes from Frank Elliott, the cook at Robie's Country Store & Deli. To achieve the flapjacks' signature crisp and browned edges, he cooks them one at a time in a hot, buttered nonstick skillet.
