IHOP Corn Cake Pancakes | www.tasteandtellblog.comPhoto Updated May 2013

There are some foods that have thousands of different recipes for them floating around the internet – chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon rolls, meatloaf, pancakes… And everyone probably claims that their version is the best version. Well, this just may be a personal preference, but these really were the best pancakes I had made in quite some time!!

This recipe comes from my binder of printed recipes, and I’m sad that I didn’t make them before now. I had never had a corn cake pancake before, but I will be having them a lot more often now!

IHOP Corn Cake Pancakes
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
A copycat recipe of IHOP's Corn Cake Pancakes, these sweet pancakes have are made with an addition of cornmeal.
Serves: 16 pancakes
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted
  1. Preheat a griddle to medium.
  2. Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. In another medium bowl, mix eggs and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add the milk, buttermilk and melted butter; mix well.
  4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with the mixer until smooth. Let the batter sit for 10-20 minutes.
  5. Spray the hot griddle with nonstick spray. Spoon ¼ cup portions of the batter onto the hot griddle and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side until brown. Serve hot with butter and maple syrup.
*You will want to make sure you wait at least the 10 minutes before pouring the batter on the griddle. The batter is super thin to start, but will thicken slightly as it sits. If the pancakes are still spreading too much when you put them on the griddle, wait another 5 minutes and try again.

    Okay, it is time to go to bed. My brain read cornFLAKE pancakes. These sound MUCH better then what my brain was imagining. Sigh.

  8. Sophie says:

    Yes, corn does take pancakes to a whole new delicious level :). They look fluffy and tasty, I could go for some right now.

  9. Jennifer says:

    WOW I those look and sound SO good!!!!

  10. Anonymous says:

    These look pretty good, though I suspect I would cut back on the sugar, and maybe cheat and use a bit more corn and a bit less flour. I wonder if that would work? And Kat's idea of bacon sounds great! Or maybe corn kernels?


  11. Katrina says:

    yUM! I love the addition of cornmeal in stuff, like breads and pancakes, even my oatmeal. Gonna have to try these!

  12. ashley says:

  13. Abby says:

    I believe Joy of Cooking has a recipe for cornmeal pancakes. I've made it (and I think that's where I got it.)

    You're right. They're awesome. The cornmeal is a fabulous addition.

  15. eatme_delicious says:

    Oo I bet I would love these! Especially with a big pat of butter on top! 😉

  16. Susan from Food Blogga says:

    I had my first corn pancake about 20 years ago, and it has been my favorite ever since! These look soooo good!

  17. Ashley says:

    I love pancakes AND corn cakes – these look just awesome!

  18. PheMom says:

    You know, I never had one until I moved to Utah but they are my absolute favorite pancakes. This recipe looks nice and fluffy!

  19. Robyn says:

    I’m making buttermilk pancakes for dinner tonight, I may have to try them with some cornmeal!

  20. Laura says:

    I was suspicious about the high amount of sugar. I made them anyway and feel these corncakes are far too sweet for a breakfast meal or any meal-its more like a cake batter. Will modify or search for a less sweet recipe and perhaps sightly higher proportion of cornmeal to the recipe.

  21. These are gorgeous! YUM. I love corn cakes!

  22. marsha hicks says:

    Do you have the receipt for IHOP harvest grain pancake

  23. Betty Smith says:

    IHOP has the worst pancakes ever. They are always cold and then they give you hard as a rock butter and expect it to melt.

  24. Stephanie says:

    Just made these – I was a huge fan of the IHOP ones, but they haven’t had them in years. I think if I remade them, I would do a little less flour and a little more cornmeal. The cornmeal flavor seemed a little too subtle. They weren’t too sweet for my taste. Overall, great recipe!
