IHOP Griddle Cakes

These are really tasty!


  • 1 1/2 cup Flour
  • 2 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Egg (beaten slightly)
  • 1 1/2 cup Buttermilk (1/4 cup additional buttermilk if needed)
  • 3/4 cup Prepared Cream of Wheat (follow the directions on the box and cool before adding)


Place first six ingredients in medium size bowl. In a small bowl mix cream of wheat with the buttermilk to get any lumps out of the cream of wheat. When this is done add egg, cream of wheat, and buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients. Beat with a spoon all until smooth. Batter may be a little lumpy.

Heat a grill or a frying, pan medium low heat works well with pancakes. When surface is hot lightly oil or use a vegetable spray. Pour the desired size for pancakes and turn when top of the pancake has little bubbles. If you spray your pancake turner with a non stick spray it helps prevent the uncooked part of the pancake from sticking to the turner and flipping the pancake is made much easier. If your pan is seasoned well your pancakes should not be sticking and if the temperature is just right your pancakes should have a beautiful golden color.

    Not good at all!!!! The cooked cream of wheat caused the pancakes to be mushy instead of fluffy. I added 1 tsp of vanilla and 1 cup of store brand pancake mix in order to fix this mess. After the added ingredients, they were edible. However, they did not resemble IHOP griddle cakes :(

      I am sorry that didn’t work out for you. I haven’t seen these on the menu for years. Where are you where they are still servings these. Sounds like I need to do a roadtrip.

    Awesome, reminds me of IHOP in 70’s……delish! Sooooo much better than my mom’s (sorry Mom).

    Good pancakes. They were worth the extra effort to make by cooking the Cream of Wheat and adding. They came out fluffy, moist and soft. My whole family enjoyed them. They brought back memories of my childhood at home when we all gathered to eat my Mama’s pancakes. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will definitely make these again. Ann
