I have to admit it. I love me some IHOP pancakes. Breakfast is one of my favorite meals to eat at restaurants, though it’s funny, because I’m normally a savory foods girl. I like to order chicken fried steak, bacon or eggs. BUT there’s always an exception when we go to IHOP. I always get their pancakes. They are amazeballs!
I found this copycat version from a blog off Pinterest and read all the reviews. They were all great and everyone said they loved them. Some commented they were better than IHOP’s. So that was the seller to me. I printed off the recipe and made them for dinner. (I love breakfast for dinner, too 😀 )
We absolutely loved these pancakes. And I agreed with the reviews. They were BETTER than IHOP’s. Maybe it’s because they were homemade and who knows what the restaurant puts in theirs (not that I care because I’ll still eat them). But this copycat version was great. Kallen will even tell you so. He had 3 that night and 2 the next morning for breakfast. 😀
- 1¼ cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1¼ cups buttermilk
- 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- In a small bowl, combine egg and buttermilk. Whisk together until blended. Add to flour mixture, stirring only until smooth. Add melted butter and sugar to batter and whisk until combined.
- Heat a griddle or nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Grease griddle with cooking spray or butter. Drop ¼ cup batter on pan and spread into a 5-inch circle. Cook until bubbles begin to form on surface and edges begin to brown. Gently flip and continue to brown other side. Repeat with remaining batter.
- Serve with butter and warm syrup. Enjoy!
