Bakery Favorites at IHop!

Cupcake Pancakes, Red Velvet Crepes, and Cinnamon Swirl Brioche French Toast Offer a Bakery Experience, Any Time of Day

Beginning April 11, guests visiting their local IHOP® restaurant will encounter the sights, scents, and sweetness of their neighborhood bakery when the breakfast leader brings innovative new twists on fresh bakery favorites available for a limited time including new Cupcake Pancakes, new Red Velvet Crepes, or Cinnamon Swirl Brioche French Toast. See the lineup of Bakery Favorites here:
Each of these Bakery Favorite items – perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – was inspired by the flavors and nostalgic memories of delicious bakery treats like yummy cupcakes, warm cinnamon rolls, and rich red velvet cake:
  • NEW! Cupcake Pancakes – IHOP restaurants’ signature buttermilk pancakes filled with festive rainbow sprinkles, then topped with cupcake icing, and whipped topping.
  • NEW! Red Velvet Crepe – A delicate, chocolaty crepe filled with IHOP restaurants’ sweet cream cheese, drizzled with cream cheese icing.
  • Cinnamon Swirl Brioche French Toast – Thick slices of Brioche French toast topped with rich cinnamon roll filling and delicious cream cheese icing.
“There’s something unique about the inviting aromas and mouthwatering flavors you find in your neighborhood bakery that inspired us to create these fun, delicious treats in a way that only IHOP can,” said Marie Grimm, Vice President, Menu Development and Innovation, International house of Pancakes, LLC. “The excitement of a cupcake created with a pancake, the luscious indulgence of red velvet in a crepe and the classic taste of a cinnamon roll captured in our brioche French Toast are all irresistible.  And unlike some neighborhood bakeries, every one of these items is freshly made just for you!”
Guests can enjoy their choice of a Bakery Favorite item any time of day as part of a sweet and savory combo with eggs, made to order, their choice of IHOP restaurants’ signature hickory smoked bacon, pork sausage links or a slice of perfectly grilled ham, and golden hash browns.
To make the offer even sweeter, as part of IHOP restaurant’s “Kids Eat Free” promotion, from April 11 through May 6, from4pm to 10pm, when Breakfastarians order an adult entrée, children 12 and under will receive a free entrée from the “Just for Kids” menu at participating restaurants. And for a limited time, the Kids’ Menu will feature a Kids’ Cupcake Rooty Jr. Combo.
Bakery Favorites will be available at participating IHOP restaurants between April 11 and June 5, 2016.

My Thoughts
My kids were beyond excited to try the new bakery creations at iHop. They'd both seen the cupcake pancake on a TV commercial and could not wait until it was their turn to have one. So of course, they each ordered it when we went. You were able to get a meal along with the pancakes or get them on their own.
They were very sweet pancakes and neither of my kids needed or wanted to add syrup. There are sprinkles and chocolate baked into the pancake itself. Then topped with whipped cream and a type of frosting drizzled on the top. Almost like it was warm when added, giving it that warm, gooey, yumminess. Very sweet, but they loved it. I took a few bites of the pancakes and enjoyed it, but was glad I hadn't gotten them for myself. Not that they weren't good, but there was a whole lot of sweetness and I would have needed a to-go container to enjoy my pancakes later. Though, having bacon and sausage helps your taste buds. It's a good treat for a special night with family.
We were very pleased with the pancakes and our experience at iHop. We enjoy the specials that iHop provides because it gives us something new to try each time we go in, as well, something to look forward to when they bring it back. I am hoping to make it back before these specials got away and try the red velvet crepes. They looked very tasty too.
