IHOP: Swedish pancakes fantastic
When in doubt when there is nothing but chain food to be found, you will not do better than the Swedish pancakes on the IHOP menu. Superb and reliable. The craving, gotta have it type food that puts IHOP into a class by itself.
What makes them so good? Perfect pan-cooked eggy crepes, sweet -tart lingonberry jam and puddles of whipped lingonberry butter.
Once we ran into an IHOP in Florida that (gasp) ruined them with that spray-on whip cream as a "gift" in response to our stated enthusiasm, which we were able to successfully scrape off, much to their chagrin.
Don't let them mess with success. This is just an egg, flour, sugar and butter classic. It needs no further gilding. Anyone who makes crepes on the back of a frying pan with hard crisp edges, as some creperies do, should be banished to eat at only Wagamama for eternal punishment.
