It seems that most cultures have some form of pancake in their culinary repertoire, just like most cultures have some form of a filled dumpling - ravioli, gyoza, pierogi, potsticker, etc. Some of these pancakes are made from grains such as our own breakfast pancakes or French crêpes. They can be made from a legume such as chickpeas. They can also be made of shredded vegetables. Potato pancakes, or latkes, are probably the best know of this genre. In Korean cuisine, there are a few variations on this type of pancake, made with various vegetables. Today, I'm focusing on butternut squash.
