I know anyone can make pancakes at home they really are a pretty easy food to make however I’ve never had any homemade pancakes that taste quite like IHOP’s pancakes. There’s just something about them that are SO MUCH better than any pancakes I’ve ever eaten. So when I have a craving for breakfast food my first instinct is to run to IHOP. It saves you the hassle of having to cook/bake and you don’t have the mess to clean up. I also think of them as a great family friendly restaurant environment with yummy food, friendly servers and great low prices!
When Fall and the holidays start rolling around I start dreaming of yummy foods including pumpkin flavored treats, cheesecake- yes I always have cheesecake for Thanksgiving rather than pie, I’m just not a huge pie fan and my husband’s favorite, carrot cake.
- Pumpkin Pancakes- Made with real pumpkin, spices and crowned with creamy whipped topping. Pumpkin is the perennial #1 selling limited-time offer Signature pancake. Last year IHOP served 3.1 million pumpkin pancakes.
- New York Cheesecake Pancakes- Grilled with real cheesecake pieces, then crowned with glazed strawberries and creamy whipped topping. More than 250,000 pounds of cheesecake were used last year for fans of this item.
- Carrot Cake Pancakes- Rounding out this season’s offerings is an oatmeal spice pancake recipe featuring a sweet-savory mix of fresh, diced apples, shredded carrots, coconut, raisins, crunchy walnut pieces topped with whipped butter and a drizzle of cream cheese icing.
The New York Cheesecake Pancakes were my choice since cheesecake is my favorite dessert! I also had hash browns, bacon and eggs so the pancakes were like the dessert portion of my meal. The cheesecake bites were to die for and a perfect combo with the strawberries, pancakes and whip cream. I’d love to try the Pumpkin Pancakes next time because I’m sure it would be just as yummy and a great Fall choice! I’m excited that this special will be going through January 2013 because that’ll give me plenty of time to enjoy these other great choices! My kids were definitely super jealous (even though they had chocolate pancakes sitting in front of them) they definitely wanted my Cheesecake Pancakes.
