Pancake lovers it's the biggest day of the year -- Free Pancake Day at IHOP! IHOP has one day each year when the restaurant offer a free short stack from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and all they ask is a donation to a worthy cause, children's charities.

Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised nearly $8 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates. Today,  guests from around the country are invited to celebrate National Pancake Day at IHOP and enjoy a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes.

In return for the free pancakes, guests are asked to consider leaving a donation for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other children's charities.

So, head to the nearest IHOP, pull up a booth and get your pancake on, East Texas. Oh, and plenty of butter and syrup please!
