A pancake is a round cake that is prepared using batter, eggs, milk, and typically a rising agent. Once prepped, the batter is poured onto a heated surface, generally a griddle, but a frying pan can even be used. By region, pancakes can differ, such as a thinner pancake may be called a crepe.
Pancakes are also generally topped with butter and syrup. However, different types of fruit, sugar, and whipped toppings can also be applied to pancakes.
McDonalds pancakes are referred to as "Hotcakes." They are hot, but not actual cakes. This leads us to determine that "Hotcakes" are in fact a compound of the words "hot and "pancakes."
