I.H.O.P. Country Griddle Cakes

I.H.O.P.® Country Griddle Cakes
This nationwide chain, which is known for it's big bargain
breakfasts, serves an impressive number of non-breakfast
items as well. In 1997, I.H.O.P. dished out over 6 million
pounds of french fries and over half a million gallons of
soft drinks. But it's the Country Griddle Cakes on the breakfast
menu that inspired this Top Secret Recipe. The unique flavor
and texture of this clone comes from the Cream of Wheat in the
batter. Now you can have your pancakes, and eat your cereal too.
