LOS ANGELES (CBS)  IHOP restaurants across the Southland will be giving away free pancakes Tuesday in celebration of National Pancake Day.

The company asks that in return for a free short stack of flapjacks, patrons leave a donation for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other designated local charities.

CBS2’s Kristine Lazar reported that the company gave away four million pancakes last year and raised $2.1 million.
