    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Pancakes -  Breakfast or Brunch?. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      I am no critic, however I never read anything related to the title. I have no idea how the QAP works structurally in that regard or for that matter if that is subject to not passing it.

        That's true. I opened the hub expecting a discussion of whether they were considered breakfast food or brunch food. I got involved in reading and mentally editing it, and forgot all about the title. Sorry 'bout that.

      I think it is a great article. I found only one thing that I would recommend changing:  in the intro paragraph you have written, "...are all batters type foods...". I would change it to "are all batter--type foods..." Aside from that, I wouldn't change a thing. Hope this is helpful.

        Opps! I meant to use only one hyphen, not 2.

    Are there any suggestions posted in the upper right corner when you are in edit mode?
    Maybe a more eye-catching photo to open with?-- like one of the fancy ones with fruit and cream?
    One problem may just be competition. There are quite a few pancake hubs.
    Sounded yummy to me.

    I think it has too little content for what HP wants now. Try stuffing in some "interesting pancake facts", etc to push up the word count.

    Also, you could talk about buckwheat flour often being used for crepes, and maybe say something about buckwheat since many people have never heard of it. Buckwheat is gluten-free, which gives you another variant for people with dietary requirements.

    Thanks everyone for your help.
    Maybe it's the title that needs changing, will try and see if it gets published after changing it.
    Have a nice day.

    Try a different name for pancake: griddle cake, johnnycake, flapjack all attract attention.

    Thanks Phyliss for that idea, I haven't heard of johnnycake. What part of the world does this come from.

      Hi Elsie. I believe the name "johnnycake" originated in the United States southern states during the Civil War. There is also a term called "hardtack", which was a biscuit made from just flour and water which the camp cook would make for soldiers to carry with them as "survival food".

      You might want to write a little history about pancakes, johnnycakes, hardtack, flapjacks, etc before you present your recipe. That always adds some interest to a recipe hub.

        Oh! Changing the title might be good, too. Something like "History of the humble Pancake" ?

    That sound like a great idea, I may do that to add a few more words to it. It's a bit low only 700. Thanks
