"Cozy back here, we could send out for flatcakes."
―Kanan Jarus[src]

Flatcakes were a type of flat, round, brown cake. Shortly before the outbreak of the Clone Wars between the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Galactic Republic[1] in 22 BBY,[3] a cafeteria servant droid on board an AA-9 Coruscant freighter[4] traveling from the planet Coruscant to the planet Naboo cooked flatcakes for the ship's passengers.[1] In 11 BBY,[5] 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.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Flatcakes first appeared in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones[1] when it was released on May 16, 2002,[6] but were not named until the release of the Star Wars Legends novel Allegiance[7] on January 30, 2007.[8] The name was then brought into canon by the novel A New Dawn, which was written by John Jackson Miller[2] and released on September 2, 2014.[9]

  5. Star Wars Rebels: The Visual Guide states that Kanan and Hera met on Gorse six years prior to the events of Star Wars Rebels, referring to the events of A New Dawn. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas states that Rebels starts in the year 5 BBY and so using basic maths it can be concluded that the events of A New Dawn take place eleven years before the Battle of Yavin in 11 BBY.
