A homemade version of IHOP's Grinch's Green Pancakes. These fluffy green holiday pancakes are topped with cream cheese icing, green whipped cream, and candy hearts.
Beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and 3 tablespoons milk until smooth and creamy, adding more milk as needed until the icing is the desired consistency.
Set aside until needed.
Pour heavy whipping cream, sifted powdered sugar, vanilla, and a few drops of green food coloring into a mixing bowl.
Beat on low speed using an electric mixer until bubbles form then increase the speed to high and beat until the whipped cream holds stiff peaks.
Keep whipped cream refrigerated until needed up to 1 hour.
In large bowl, whisk the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
Whisk together the egg and buttermilk.
Pour into the flour mixture and stir just to combine.
Add sugar, melted butter, vanilla and green food coloring and mix until blended but with lumps remaining.
Drop a small amount of vegetable oil into a skillet or on a griddle and place over medium heat.
Once the oil begins to separate and move around the pan, use a paper towel to rub it into the pan, leaving just a light coating on the pan.
Ladle about 1/4 cup of the green pancake batter onto the pan. Cook until bubbles begin to form on surface and edges begin to set.
Gently flip your pancakes over and cook until lightly browned on both sides.
Repeat with remaining batter making between 8 and 10 pancakes.
Stack warm pancakes on a plate then spread on some of the cream cheese icing and add a dollop or swirl of green whipped cream.
Sprinkle on some candy hearts and serve immediately.
