IHOP might just be the OG when it comes to all things pancake-y. One glance at their menu tells you there’s no shortage of creativity when it comes to options. So, it’s no surprise that IHOP offers an equally amazing selection of French toast, waffles, and crepes. But now, they’re introducing something even more insane/awesome than Cupcake Pancakes. They are launching three flavors of French Toast Donuts! We repeat: French Toast Donuts! (Umm, we just heard our stomachs growl with anticipation.)

But first, get an eye-full of these magnificent Cupcake Pancakes. We dare you to look away!

Okay, now back to French Toast Donuts. IHOP is offering three distinct flavors, and we won’t be shy about trying all three (y’know, in the name of breakfast research). The new flavors are Bacon & Maple French-Toasted Donut, Strawberries & Cream French-Toasted Donut, and Apple Fritter French-Toasted Donut. (Yes, please to all three.)

The Bacon and Maple and the Strawberry and Cream flavors are yeast donuts filled with Bavarian creme — so, essentially, an eclair. They are dunked in French toast batter, then griddled, then topped with exquisite French toast-y toppings. The Bacon and Maple flavor, as you might imagine, has maple glaze and hickory-smoked bacon. The Strawberry and Cream flavor has macerated strawberries, powdered sugar, and a strawberry glaze.

The Apple Fritter is actually an apple fritter, dunked in French toast batter, griddled, and topped with cinnamon apples, whipped cream, and powdered sugar.

You can get all three concoctions starting Monday, July 31st. But hurry — as most good things go — it’s only here for a limited time.

Just in case French Toast Donuts aren’t your thang. That’s cool. You can always have the original at your local International House of Pancakes.

Deep in our hearts, we know nothing can beat a true classic.
