Flatcakes were a type of breakfast food served to passengers on board an AA-9 Coruscant freighter traveling from the planet Coruscant to Naboo shortly before the beginning of the Clone Wars. Years later, during the cold war, a variety of flatcake known as Trandoshani flatcakes were served in the Canto Casino on the planet Cantonica, where the Suerton Wodibin served himself a plate of flatcakes and sautéed fruit.

Shortly before the outbreak of the Clone Wars between the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Galactic Republic in 22 BBY, a cafeteria servant droid, on board an AA-9 Coruscant freighter traveling from the planet Coruscant to Naboo, cooked flatcakes for the ship's passengers. While carrying four platters of flatcakes and flipping one of them, the droid shooed the astromech droid R2-D2 away from the ship's food counter. In 11 BBY, the human Jedi-in-hiding Kanan Jarrus joked that he and the Twi'lek pilot Hera Syndulla could order flatcakes while they were cramped together in the cargo hold of the transport Moonglow-72 during the conflict on the planet Gorse.
In 34 ABY, a racing fathier kept at the Canto Bight racetrack on the planet Cantonica was named "Time for Flatcakes". When the trio of Suerton gamblers known as the Lucky Three and their Heptooinian friend Kaljach Sonmi arrived at the track looking to bet, they learned the fathier's name from the Canto Casino employee Joris.
Time for FlatcakesEdit
- "It's always time for flatcakes."
- ―Wodibin fantasizes about flatcakes
This prompted the Suerton Wodibin to claim it truly was always time for flatcakes, and feeling hungry, Sonmi absentmindedly mumbled that he would like some flatcakes. The Suerton's misunderstood Sonmi's meaning and purchased "Time for Flatcakes" for him, causing the trio and Sonmi to temporarily fall out. Wodibin, who had previously unsuccessfully tried to buy flatcakes during the late hours of the night in Canto Bight, later found a buffet serving some of what Sonmi considered the most delicious Trandoshani flatcakes in the galaxy at the Canto Casino and served himself a plate of flatcakes and sautéed fruit to eat.
Before the Seurton could eat them all, he collided with the bartender Ganzer, causing the plate of food and a tray of drinks that Ganzer was carrying to spill all over the professional gambler Orisha Okum, who was playing a game of pazaak with Sonmi. The spill revealed an alterable pazaak card that Okum was using to cheat in the game, but Sonmi allowed her to play it anyway. The spilled food and drink then caused the card to malfunction, causing Okum to lose the game.
