Menu Description: "Delicious blend of buttermilk and real Cream of Wheat."

This nationwide chain, which is known for its big bargain breakfasts, serves an impressive number of non-breakfast items as well. In 1997, IHOP dished out over 6 million pounds of french fries and over half a million gallons of soft drinks. But it's the Country Griddle Cakes on the breakfast menu that inspired this Top Secret Recipe. The unique flavor and texture of this clone comes from the Cream of Wheat in the batter. Now you can have your pancakes, and eat your cereal too.

Possibly the best pancakes I've ever made. I added vanilla and I'll tell ya, I could eat just the batter. I can't wait to try other recipes here.

Loved it! I had these pancakes at IHOP a couple weeks ago and thought they were fabulous. I woke up this AM craving them, so I decided to search the web for the recipe and I was not dissapointed. My family agreed!
