I think this is regional, because the pancakes we eat on Shrove Tuesday are very much like the crêpes I buy in France. The main difference is that you fold them up and put them in a parcel.
Actually, a crepe (EN) is different from a pancake. A crêpe is a rather large and very thin pancake, spread with a condiment (for lack of a better word), e.g., spread with Nutella and maybe slices of banana, folded, and sliced. One crêpe will serve two people very nicely. Try one from a sidewalk vendor next time you're in Paris.
