IHOP Copycat Pancakes

I've never been much of a breakfast person, but on the weekends Graham and I love having breakfast together. Yesterday we used a groupon for this hole in the wall, mom & pop style place in Jacksonville, and I had so much food I seriously didn't eat again till we had Papa Sushi for dinner.

Anyways. This morning when I woke up, I suggested pancakes. Whenever we go to IHOP for pancakes, I always get the New York Cheesecake Pancakes. They're my favorite, but so many calories, it physically hurt to look at the nutritional information. So this morning we decided to try to make one of the dozens of IHOP copycat recipes on the internet.

These turned out really, REALLY well. Graham didn't think they were AS GOOD as the ones he gets when we go to IHOP, but he said they were definitely better than than the ones made from the mix.

And yes, I know the amount of syrup is pathetic. I hate syrup. Blech.
