Top 10 Unique Ways to Make Pancakes for National Pancake Day

By Gina Masilotti,

March 4 is National Pancake day and it’s the best day to celebrate a breakfast classic.

The IHOP Company created this national day in 2006. Each year on this day, they give away a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes to all guests who come to the restaurant chain. In return for the free and delicious pancakes, guests are asked if they would like to leave a donation for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals or any other designated local charities that may be available for donation. Since the celebration began in 2006, IHOP restaurants have raised $13 million to support charities.

This year, their goal is to raise $3 million for charity! So head down to your local IHOP, get some free pancakes and if you’re really feeling generous, leave a donation of any amount to help them reach their goal.

While there’s really nothing better than a free stack of buttermilk pancakes, they may leave you wanting more. What most people don’t realize is that there are hundreds of different ways to make the fluffy breakfast treat. You could add fruit, chocolate chips, or cinnamon. You could top them with peanut butter cups, Nutella, and even bacon. You could decorate them with endless amounts of whipped cream, or even turn your batter into a chocolaty treat. The possibilities for pancakes are endless!

So, whether you have an IHOP near you and decide you want more than just that short stack, or if there’s no IHOPS around you at all and you can’t stop thinking about how great those pancakes would be, there are so many different ways you can whip up our own! Here are what TheCelebrityCafe.com believes are the top 10 unique ways to make pancakes, and most of them are nothing like the original buttermilk cakes you’re used to!
