Pancakes, of course! In celebration of its 59th anniversary, IHOP is offering short stacks of pancakes for 0.59 cents. Applies to dine-in only from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. today, July 18. More information here.
The first known pancakes trace back to early Roman times. Today, there are a variety of forms (think waffle pancakes), and flavors and toppings. Some pancakes trends we’re seeing include:
- Spicy and Savory flavors or toppings
- Fresh-fruit toppings
- Pancakes for meal occasions throughout the day – they’re not just for breakfast
America’s love for pancakes is evident in these fun facts from IHOP:
- In one year, the restaurants nationwide serve
- 700 million pancakes
- 1.5 million gallons of Maple Syrup
If you miss out on IHOP’s 59th anniversary celebration today, you can make your own with a favorite Food Channel pancake recipe from our Chairman/CEO. Top them off with some Maple Syrup, demonstration video courtesy of Shawn Bailey, of Game On!, a member of our Food Channel Guest Chef Network:
