IHOP's pumpkin pancakes really stack up

If you haven't tasted IHOP's pumpkin pancakes, you have just six more days to sample a stack. The California-based restaurant chain stops serving the seasonal special on Sunday, October 31.

That's the same day that the restaurants end their $4.99 All-You-Can Eat Buttermilk Pancake Special. The combo breakfast includes two eggs and hash browns and starts with two buttermilk flapjacks; patrons can have three more at a time "until the guest is satisfied," IHOP promises -- or uncomfortably bloated, whichever comes first.

I honestly didn't think I'd like the pumpkin griddle cakes since I'm basically a pancake purist, but the server at Overland Park's 6936 West 119th Street location convinced me that she flipped over the flapjacks.

"They're spicy but not too spicy," she said.

There's a touch of cinnamon and, I suspect, ginger added to the batter. The pancakes aren't doughy but appealingly light. Once I scraped off the big dollop of whipped cream and added maple syrup, the hotcakes tasted refreshingly of autumn. It was nearly as good as a slice of pumpkin bread, right out of the oven.
