I remember the first time I had the Double-Dipped French Toast at IHOP. (You can see my previous post here.) I immediately fell in love with the crispy outside and the yummy fruit topping. So naturally when I heard it was making a come back I was really excited about trying it again. I have to say I was a bit on the disappointed side this time though. Last time I went there was a bunch of fruit that was spread all over the top of my french toast. And as you can see this time it was just a small little bit. Heck I think there was more whipped cream than fruit. A little bit of a let down, but I still enjoyed it. I've worked in a restaurant before so I know that depending on who is working the kitchen food can come out different every day of the week. So I enjoyed what little fruit I did get and then used flavored syrup for the rest of my french toast.
IHOP restaurants are bringing back their newest innovation, Double Dipped French Toast-- soft brioche bread first dipped in vanilla batter, then dipped a second time in a coating of corn flakes and oatmeal and griddled perfectly to a crispy golden-brown, raising the bar for French toast at an affordable price.
Double Dipped French Toast is yet another example of why America turns to IHOP for breakfast any time of day—and has for over 57 years. When it was introduced last summer, it became one of our most popular dishes, and guests have been eagerly awaiting its return. And it’s back in two new sweetly indulgent varieties:
Blackberry & Vanilla – Thick slices of Brioche bread dipped in our vanilla batter, then in cornflakes and oatmeal, griddled, and topped with plump blackberries and drizzled with vanilla sauce.
Banana, Peanut Butter & Chocolate – Thick slices of Brioche bread dipped in vanilla batter, then in cornflakes and oatmeal, griddled, and topped with sliced fresh bananas, chocolate chips and a drizzle of peanut butter sauce.
Guests can enjoy two slices of hand-crafted Double-Dipped French Toast any time of day as part of a combo with eggs, done the way they like them, their choice of crispy bacon, pork sausage links or a slice of grilled ham, and IHOP restaurants' signature golden hash browns; or as an entrée stacked three slices high.
Double Dipped French toast will be available at participating IHOP restaurants between now and April 10, 2016.
