When you think of pancakes, the first thing that comes to mind may be the maple syrup and butter-topped rounds that instantly transport you to warm Sunday mornings. But around the world, pancakes aren’t so much a single dish as a category: they can be sweet or savory, served at breakfast or dinner.

Some of our best breakfasts of course fall under the pancake category: jazz things up with our Argentinian banana-and-pear version or one with apples and dulce de leche. But the savory side is equally exciting: who doesn’t love scallion pancakes, one of our best Chinese recipes or Acadian ployes? We’ve rounded up our favorite pancake recipes from around the world.
