Don’t you just love it when companies celebrate their anniversaries by giving you a deal? Free ice cream, discounts on pizza … whatever it is, it’s glorious and should never be stopped.
In a matter of weeks, their latest deal will get you some cheap pancakes with a side of nostalgia.
From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on July 16, participating IHOP restaurants will be celebrating the founding of their restaurant in 1958 by offering 1950s prices, which includes a short stack of buttermilk pancakes for just 58 cents!
There is a limit of one 58-cent stack of pancakes per person and the “Panniversary” offer is valid for dine-in only, so cruise in anytime during those 12 hours and the pancakes are yours for less than a dollar.
The 2019 price of a short stack of pancakes, by the way, is $4.59, so you’ll be saving $4.01. Talk about the cat’s pajamas!
Don’t have an IHOP near you? No worries! There’s a secret to making perfectly fluffy pancakes, and it has to do with separating the egg whites from the yolks. According to Kitchn, if you first mix the yolk in and then add unwhipped egg whites, the pancakes will be delicate on the inside, but crisp on the outside. Yum!
And next time you’re making a big breakfast at home, take a page from IHOP’s book and use some leftover pancake batter to make a delicious omelet!
Yup, IHOP adds their famous pancake batter right into the eggs before the eggs turn into an omelet, giving the omelet a full texture just like the pancakes themselves.
Pancakes with a side of omelets (with pancakes)? Sounds perfect to me! Will you be heading to your local IHOP on July 16 for 58-cent pancakes?
