Happy National Pancake Day! Pancakes, aka hotcakes, Johnny cakes, flapjacks, etc. are a breakfast favorite, but we think they are too amazing to be pigeonholed into one meal of the day. IHOP celebrates this day on March 1st each year by giving out free pancakes, but September 26th is their true day of recognition. Instead of their mediocre mass-made batter, enjoy this special day by making one of the uniquely gourmet recipes below!
