It’s National Pancake Day, the best holiday you didn’t know was a holiday! To celebrate, we’re joined live by pancake purveyor Gary Pierce of IHOP who’s flippin’ flap jacks in the name of fighting blood cancers. Eye Opener also welcomes Gregory Seitter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society who is happy to promote IHOP’s day of free short stack buttermilk pancakes with a suggested donation going towards the cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improving the quality of life 0f patients and their families.

I took a turn operating the pancake pourer and had a little too much fun flipping the ‘cakes on the skillet. I also got some good advice from Seitter on how to make the perfect pancake. He says lumps are actually good in a batter because they help keep the batter from falling flat. Another tip you might be surprised to learn – the water in the batter mixture should be under 50 degrees! Shouldn’t be a problem with this cold weather.

Beat the cold with a warm plate of short stacks at participating Philadelphia-area IHOPS today and support the good work of LLS. Their goal is to raise $3 million with this national campaign this year, so do your part to support them!
