Pancakes are a breakfast masterpiece. These round, doughy, sweet, magical morning treats are best when slathered in pure maple syrup. Sometimes it feels like you can eat a hundred in one sitting — until you start eating them and realize that two and a half is more than satisfying. Still, today is #NationalPancakeDay so be excessive! Because the best way to celebrate pancakes is to eat too many of them.
Today we have two ways for you to step up your pancake game.
- Making these Cinnamon Roll Pancakes from CATCH NYC.
- Collecting free flapjacks at IHOP.

CATCH Cinnamon Roll Pancakes (Yield 12 pancakes)
These upgraded pancakes are made up of pancake batter, cinnamon roll filling, cream cheese frosting, and candied almonds. That seems pretty simple, right? Plus, there’s a secret ingredient that will appeal to booze fans (hint: it rhymes with Mack Ban-y’alls)
Pancake Batter: melted butter (4 cups), milk (4 cups), water (1.3 cup), eggs (3), maple syrup (1/4 cup), vanilla extract (2 tablespoons), salt (2 tablespoons), Ap flour (2 cups), cake flour (4 cups), 10x sugar (2/3 cups), baking powder (3 tablespoons), and baking soda (1 tablespoon).
Cinnamon roll filling: butter (1 pound), Ap flour (1/5 cup), dark brown sugar (2 pounds), cinnamon (2 tablespoons), salt (1 tablespoon), Jack Daniel’s (1/2 cup).
Cream cheese frosting: butter (1/4 cup), cream cheese (1 cup), powdered sugar (1 pound).
Pancake Procedure : In a medium sized mixing bowl add salt, ap flour, cake flour, 10x sugar, baking powder and baking sugar. Mix well until evenly co-orporated. In separate mixing bowl add melted butter, milk, water, egg, maple syrup and vanilla. Mix well until evenly incorporated. Slowly add all the liquid ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients while whisking firmly to incorporate both. Once mixed completely continue to mix for one more minute.
