IHOP country griddle cakes are no longer on the menu and I miss them! This is one version of the recipe. Another one (using instant cream of wheat) is at http://breakfast.food.com/recipe/tsrs-version-of-i-h-o-p-country-griddle-cakes-113346
This recipe comes from an old old Fanny Farmer cookbook that I bought at a yard sale. An inscription inside was dated Dec. 25, 1945. These pancakes, or griddlecakes if you will, are the bomb and the only recipe I will use. Do give it a try...if you like a pancake that has lots of body then you wont be dissapointed.
Cornmeal Griddle Cakes Recipe (Cornmeal griddle cakes, also known as hoe cakes, can be made with little more than cornmeal, a bit of oil, water, and a hot skillet. The result is a crisped exterior, an ethereally airy interior, and a texture that's pleasantly gritty through and through.)
