On Tuesday February 5th, IHOP will be doling out millions of free stacks in exchange for donations during their annual National Pancake Day drive. “The House That Carbs Built” has been raising funds for local charities over the last eight years and is hoping to meet a $3 million target in 2013. That’s a lot of syrup. I hear Aunt Jemima has been training hard. “Rocky” montage hard.
Whether you call them flapjacks, griddle cakes or johnny cakes, this go to breakfast item can often border on dessert, depending on your toppings. Some like to adorn a short stack with fresh fruit in hopes of choking out the guilt currently tsk, tsk’ing in your head. Others will use whole grains, granola or bypass the syrup in order to make themselves feel better about devouring a plate.
I’m not here to talk about those damn Hippies.
Here’s a gallery of epic pancake porn for your consideration.
