National Pancake Day History

National Pancake Day seeks to promote the fluffy, round breakfast cakes. This day was originally called Lumberjack day and was founded by bloggers Marianne Ways and Colleen Venable. It later gained popularity after a bakery, Junior's Cheesecake, adopted it. Although it shares the same name, it is not to be confused with the other Pancake Day, which is celebrated before Ash Wednesday. National Pancake Day is celebrated annually on September 26th.
