A pancake was a thin, flat round cake, prepared from a cake batter and cooked on a grill or frying pan.

Although pancakes were not commonly served cold, a pancake that was served hot was sometimes referred to as hotcake.

Once, Robin said that Krim balloons were selling like hotcakes at the novelty stores.[2]

When Batman leaped from his Batcopter to the top of Brainiac's Skull Ship, he thought to himself that he had to time it just right, otherwise he'd miss the spaceship, and fall to the streets below, making "instant bat-pancakes all over the ground."[3]
