IHop Pancakes with Pink Lady Apple's and Syrup
I used to work at IHop. I even wore that hidious outfit with the big puffy shoulders. I quit rather quickly...after being harrassed, left dimes by high school teenagers and told I had to work another shift because someone didn't show up. But they did have really good pancakes! This recipe was maybe the best pancake recipe that I have tried, although there is not a huge difference between pancake recipes to me. Maybe I will search for my favorite Elmer's buttermilk pancake recipe. The picture shows rather dark maybe a little burnt pancakes. They were still delicious. Does anyone know how to make the actual pancake cook all the way through without burning?
Here is the IHop recipe:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 heaping teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup cooking oil
pinch of salt
Preheat a skillet over medium heat. Use a pan with a nonstick surface or apply a little nonstick spray.
In a blender or with a mixer, combine all of the remaining ingredients until smooth.
Pour the batter by spoonfuls into the hot pan, forming 5-inch circles.
When the edges appear to harden, flip the pancakes. They should be light brown. Cook on the other side for same amount of time, until light brown.
