It’s National Pancake Day!  Or, one of them anyway . . .

There’s also one in September.  But this is the one IHOP does where you can get a free short stack.  They just ask you to donate whatever you can to various children’s hospitals.

This is the 15th year they’ve done it, and the pancake deal runs all day, from 7:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M., or as late as 10:00 P.M. at some locations.  And when you’re at the restaurant you can sign up for a chance to win free pancakes for LIFE.

With that in mind, a new study in England asked people what the “PERFECT” pancake looks like.  But apparently they like them a little thinner than we do.

The average answer was “golden brown,” about six inches in diameter, and only 0.15 inches thick.  Which is just over an eighth of an inch.  Fluffier pancakes are closer to half-an-inch thick.

Also, syrup is NOT the most popular pancake topping in England.  Lemon and sugar took the top two spots.  Syrup is third.
