Pancakes, pfannkuchen, crêpes — or my personal favorite, panqueques — whatever you call them, whatever format they come in, they’re delicious.

And right now, kids can get them for FREE at participating Denny’s diners across the country.

The promotion runs every day from 4 to 10 p.m. for the entire month of September. For two kids to eat free, all you have to do is buy one adult entree.

Here are all the syrupy details…

How to Get Free Pancakes at Denny’s in September

Denny’s recently upgraded its pancake recipe to include fresh buttermilk, real eggs and a hint of vanilla, and now claims they’re 50% fluffier.

Who better to judge than the ultimate pancake-eaters themselves — kids?

So, to put its new flapjacks — and kid-friendly sizes and flavors like cinnamon, strawberries and cream and chocolate chip — to the test, the restaurant’s inviting kids to try them for free.

“Kids ages 10 and under can enjoy Denny’s pancakes in any of these dishes for free every day in September from 4-10 p.m. with the purchase of one adult entrée at participating locations,” notes Denny’s.

“The deal actually allows for TWO orders of kids pancakes with purchase of one adult entrée,” confirms a public relations representative.

And to sweeten the stack, Denny’s will donate $1 to No Kid Hungry every time you use the hashtag #ShareMySlam on Twitter or Instagram.

So get panqueque-ing, and don’t forget to share!
