RECIPE TIPS: Make Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes

Throughout October, IHOP is serving pumpkin pancakes. Although the company won’t divulge its secret recipe, they have shared their tips for making perfect pumpkin pancakes.

  • Canned Pumpkin: Start with your favorite pancake batter recipe and simply add canned pumpkin pie mix (seasoned pumpkin purée).
  • Water Temperature: When preparing dry pancake mix, it is essential that the water is chilled to less than 50°F. Use ice water from the fridge, or use ice cubes to bring down the temperature of tap water.
  • Keep The Lumps. Lumps are good—small lumps of flour are what make pancakes tall and fluffy. Don’t over mix the pancake batter.
  • Grill Temperature: Use a 350°F grill. Make sure that there are no hot or cold spots that can lead to uneven cooking.
  • Cooking Time: Judge when a pancake is ready by its appearance. It should be golden with a light browning at the edges.
  • As a Halloween special, IHOP will offer free Scary Face Pancakes to trick-or-treaters aged 12 and under, on Friday, October 29th from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
