These copycat IHOP Pancakes are golden and fluffy pancakes that taste just like the ones from the popular restaurant chain. My family devours these every time I make them. They are the best!
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 amazing! Especially with their maple pecan syrup. Yum!
I found this copycat version from a blog I found off Pinterest and read all the reviews. I always like to read reviews before I try a recipe. 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). This copycat version was really great. Kallen will even tell you so. He had 3 that night and 2 the next morning for breakfast. 😀
