I went to IHOP once and got these things they call a cinnastack. It was sinful. They should have called it a sin-a-stack. This week IHOP was offering a free small stack if you made a donation to their cause. I tried to go with the kids but there was barely standing room in the lobby because the line was so long! We left and I promised to make the kids IHOP style pancakes this morning. Here’s what I came up with!
First I made Grandma Ware’s pancakes. Today I used flax milk with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice in lieu of buttermilk. I also ground the spelt in my vitamix so I could feel like they were a little bit healthy under all that sugar and butter! While those were cooking, I mixed up the cinnamon sugar butter. It was just butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, pinch of salt and vanilla, mashed it up with a fork until it’s combined. Spread a bit of this on each pancake.
Then I made the drizzle on top and based it loosely on my cream cheese frosting recipe. Butter, cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar, vanilla, pinch of salt whisked together. I ended up adding a bit more milk to mine because the drizzle was less drizzle and more clumpy. See?
It tasted great, though! Anyway, I added a little more milk and got it to be more like this. If you want it even fancier for company, you could put it into a zip top bag, cut off the corner and drizzle it on really pretty.
So that’s it! If you want a deliciously sinful breakfast treat, this may be the one you need!
