Cheesecake Factory shares Lemon-Ricotta Pancake recipe for National Pancake Day

IHOP under fire for tweeting a sonogram image of pancakes inside a womb in honor of Mother’s Day

IHOP under fire for tweeting a sonogram image of pancakes inside a womb in honor of Mother’s Day on the heels of Georgia’s controversial ‘heartbeat’ bill.

The Cheesecake Factory, a restaurant chain that specializes in cheesecake, serves 37 different types of cheesecake, and proudly advertises “cheesecake” right in its name, is for some reason super stoked about National Pancake Day on Sept. 26.

That being said, pancakes are still included within Cheesecake Factory’s million-page menu booklet, right alongside other brunch favorites such as waffles and Monte Cristo sandwiches. And because Cheesecake Factory is so proud of these pancakes, which, again, are not cheesecakes, the restaurant has decided to share the recipe for its Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes in honor of National Pancake Day.

“These pancakes are the perfect dish to make at home to celebrate — and they’re so delicious that any day you whip them up will feel like a holiday,” said a spokesperson for the chain.

The intention, however, is to whip up these pancakes on National Pancake Day, which is celebrated on Sept. 26 when it’s not already being celebrated in early March, which is when IHOP recognizes National Pancake Day.

Honestly, this whole thing is a confusing mess. But you know what? Who cares. Let’s not ruin what should be an otherwise delicious (maybe) National Pancake Day!

Cheesecake Factory wants you to eat pancakes on National Pancake Day, whether you buy them from the restaurant or not.
