The world of pancakes is vast, and not just in the chocolate chip to Double Stuf Oreo way. We're talking about international pancakes (not to be confused with IHOP), because pancakes are popular in almost every country across the globe. Of course, they're all made differently; in France, for instance, pancakes are thin and filled with sugar and lemon... we love them for this. In other countries they are drizzled with sweetened condensed milk -- a must-try classic dish from Thailand. But everywhere, they're delicious.

On September 26, also known as International Pancake Day, we thought it fitting to introduce you to the global world of pancakes. Because even if you're a big fan of a tall stack of buttermilk pancakes, that doesn't mean you shouldn't give the Austrian Kaiserschmarrn a try. (Psst, they use so much butter in their pancakes -- it's glorious.)
