Celebrate IHOPs 55th Birthday with New Summer Signature Pancakes‏ (Review)

They always say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  But what if you're having it for dinner?  Breakfast for dinner is always a favorite in our house, especially since we all love pancakes, waffles and french toast!

Just in time to celebrate their 55th birthday, IHOP (the breakfast giant) has announced their newest, most creative summer signature pancakes available in restaurants for a limited time.  These tasty pancake flavors include Tiramisu, Jelly Donut (Seriously?!) and Banana Graham.

Whenever we go to IHOP we always face the same issue... what delicious breakfast item to choose!  It's not only the kids who have a difficult time making their choices.  I will admit that I usually have 2 or 3 that I really want and wait until the last possible minute to make my final decision.  We are never disappointed, just wish our stomachs were bigger and that we could enjoy all of our favorites!

The three new signature pancakes are:

  • Jelly Donut Pancakes – Fluffy buttermilk pancakes filled with layers of luscious raspberry jelly then topped with glaze, more raspberry jelly and powdered sugar.
  • Tiramisu Pancakes - Buttermilk pancakes and sweet mocha cream topped with a drizzle of chocolate, whipped topping and a dusting of cocoa powder.
  • Banana Graham Nut Pancakes - Sliced fresh bananas grilled inside buttermilk pancakes layered with marshmallow cream, graham cracker crumbs and crushed honey-roasted pecans then topped with cinnamon cream cheese.

These three new delicious flavors are available starting at just $4.99.  You can purchase these flavors as yummy treats alone or as part of an IHOP breakfast combo, which can include two eggs, done any way they like them, optional choice of crispy bacon, pork sausage links or a grilled ham slice, along with IHOP restaurants’ signature golden hash browns.

With three delicious summer signature pancake options - choosing would prove to be difficult!  I finally decided to try the mouth-watering Tiramisu Pancakes because mocha and chocolate are two of my favorite things!  My daughter opted for the Jelly Donut Pancakes, no explanation necessary.  My son chose the Berry-Berry Brioche French Toast, while my husband went with his usual omelette!

I love that the pancakes and french toast are soft, fluffy and full of flavor!  The added fruit whipped toppings give it an added flavor-burst, and provides the "icing on the cake."  When you put everything together it makes for the perfect flavor combination!

What is your favorite pancake topping?

I love their chocolate chip pancakes with the original syrup. We went to IHOP for breakfast on Father's Day and my son was so happy to take my husband out to breakfast. It was cute because he is only 3, so he kept saying that it was his dad's birthday to everyone, but they knew that he meant father's day.
