There's a funny family joke about the time Princess read the sign at IHOP and read what it stood for. HA ... I still get the giggles when I remember ... she was in total awe that it stood for International House Of Pancakes ... oh boy ... classic, typical Princess moment.
Anyways, not sure when the last time I was there but it's been a year or so (I missed out on the free stack stuff March 1st) and remember it being quite expensive for the 5 of us that morning. Of course, we had so much more than pancakes ... so here's a recipe I've had since January 2006 (according to the little date thing at the bottom of the page) and it came from Robbie Haf website (which is STILL active!)... and in keeping with the theme of Tasty Tuesday to measure or not,I sometimes double this recipe (and heck, heaping is really a judgment call in my opinion!)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 heaping tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup milk
1/4 cup veg. oil
1 egg or 1/4 cup egg substitute
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda, set aside.
Beat milk, egg and oil in separate bowl.
Slowly whisk dry mix into wet mix til mixed well. Of course, as always, do NOT overmix!
Using whatever works best for you, pour about 1/4 cup of batter at a time on a hot griddle/skillet over medium heat.
When edges started to get hardenend, flip pancakes - should be light brown - cook on other side for same amount of time.
Serve up with butter, syrup, fruit and whip cream to keep it IHOPish.
