A flapjack, except in some areas of the UK, is a pancake. The first syllable of the word “flapjack” derives from an obsolete word for flipping with a flick of the wrist/arm.
Flapjacks are flat, which perhaps precipitates the occasional switch to the less opaque “flatjack.” Examples:
: “ Flatjacks: Every Thursday morning, my mother would make us pancakes for breakfast before school.”
: “you have 2 put the flatjacks on the skillet.”
: “ flatjacks from scratch with the redneck”
