Imitators IHOP Grinch pancakes

If you think these pancakes are familiar, you probably got them at IHOP last year!

My little family of 5 is absolutely obsessed with the Grinch and last year I took the girls to eat IHOP Grinch Pancakes for breakfast after watching the movie.

This year, they have asked for more Grinch pancakes, but unfortunately, they will not make the Grinch pancakes again this year at IHOP.

So, what should a mother do? Of course, make a Copycat IHOP Grinch Pancake recipe!

Luckily, it's really easy to start a game at home, and you probably already have the most ingredients you need!

Best food coloring for green pancakes

To get the best green color for Grinch Pancakes, I recommend using the Wilton Gel Icing Food Colors (affiliate link).

You can buy them at Walmart, Michaels or even Amazon. They are cheap and a little bit goes a long way.

You do not have to add much at all to get lots of color and they do not affect the taste.

Other tools / ingredients needed:

Aside from the food coloring, there are a few tools or ingredients that you will need:

  1. Hand Blender (Affiliate Link): This really helps if you hit the cream cheese icing and then the green whipped cream.
  2. Heart sprinkles (affiliate link)

How to make extra fluffy pancakes

This pancake recipe is extra fluffy because my kids like them so much! I have some tips for keeping her so fluffy.

  1. First I make it with a mixture of milk and vinegar and then a combination of baking soda and baking soda. You can also replace buttermilk with the milk-vinegar mixture if you have them handy.
  2. Do not mix too much, the bubbles should keep the pancakes soft! Once the pancake mixture comes together, stop stirring and watch as all the bubbles burst open.
  3. Do not turn over your pancakes too soon. It's an obvious, but a big one!

That being said, this is a simple delicious pancake recipe that has just turned green.
