Hotcakes is the 4th studio album by American singer-songwriter Carly Simon, released by Elektra Records, on January 10, 1974.

Featuring the major hits "Mockingbird", a duet with her then-husband James Taylor (a cover of a 1963 hit for Inez and Charlie Foxx), and "Haven't Got Time for the Pain", Hotcakes became one of Simon's biggest selling albums. Recorded during her pregnancy with her first child, many of the album's songs reflected Simon's upbeat mood during this period. The album's cover photo, taken by Ed Caraeff, shows the pregnant Simon sitting in a gleamingly white kitchen, smiling brightly and wearing a bohemian white linen dress.
