smpx 20: coffee cake
IHOP has been advertising their coffee cake pancakes this past week. We saw the ad and thought it would be perfect to try for the 20th week of SMPX.
We used the whole wheat batter mix and added a little brown sugar and sour cream. Once they were on the griddle, we sprinkled streusel from a package of apple muffin mix on one side of the pancakes. Once flipped, this made a sugar crust that was amazingly good. We topped the finished pancakes with honey butter and sprinkled on a little more the streusel.
These were the best SMPX attempt we've had a long time. I think these might be my new favorite.
We give coffee cake pancakes 4/5 stars.
