Traditional pancakes.

The pancakes we know today as a common breakfast treat were accidentally developed about 100 years ago, when somebody decided to try cooking one in a pan.  Prior to that, pancake batter was traditionally just dumped onto a plate and consumed  without cooking, sometimes with syrup and/or butter.

Back then they were called "dough cakes." When people started frying them in pans, they called them "pan-fried dough cakes," which was soon shortened to "pancakes." My grandma has a really old copy of the Betty Crocker cookbook. That's how I know.
