Tuesday is National Pancake Day, a time to celebrate the classic, comforting breakfast food.
Traditionally, National Pancake Day is on Fat Tuesday, also known as Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent begins. It only seems fitting to indulge in a stack of fluffy pancakes before you're expected to go through a six-week period of atonement and self-denial.
To celebrate, IHOP is offering customers a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes Tuesday. The pancake restaurant chain has been giving away free pancakes on National Pancake Day since 2006. They are asking guests to consider leaving a donation to the Children's Miracle Network Hospital or other designated local charities.
And who says you can't have breakfast for dinner? Make a stack any time of the day, or night, and enjoy!
