It’s National IHOP Pancake Day!
The International House of Pancakes is offering customers a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes between 7am and 7pm Tuesday, February 27 at its locations in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, and Mexico. You have to dine-in to take advantage of the deal.
IHOP has been celebrating the day since 2006. While each stack of pancakes is free, the pancake chain is asking guests to please consider leaving a donation for the meal that will then be donated to a local children’s hospital and other health organizations.
You can go to IHOP to get theses free pancakes or you can make some at home. Makes 10 4” pancakes.
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg, beaten
Pinch of salt
1 1/4 cup buttermilk *
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup sugar
In a medium size bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, mix well. In another bowl beat the egg and add in the buttermilk, mix well then add the egg mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir until smooth. Add in the melted butter and sugar. Fry on a greased griddle. Serve hot with your favorite toppings. Yum Yum!
* Don’t have buttermilk. Just add 1 teaspoon of white vinegar to a cup of milk. Let sour for 5 minutes. This recipe calls for 1 1/4 cup of buttermilk so you can use 1 1/4 cup milk with 1 1/4 teaspoon of white vinegar.
