Why goto the restaurant to get them, when you can fix them at home!

Pre-heat an electric griddle to 375°. Mix hotcake ingredients with a wire whisk until smooth.
Apply about 1 teaspoon of Crisco® shortening to the griddle, spreading evenly with a paper towel. (Be careful not to burn your fingers)
Pour the hotcake batter on the greased, pre-heated griddle, forming 5 inch hotcakes.
Cook until dry around the edges, (about a minute) then turn.
Allow to cook about 40-50 seconds after flipping, and remove.
Place the cooked hotcakes on an oven safe plate, and warm in your oven for 5-8 minutes. (This helps give the hotcakes that tough texture McDonald’s is famous for)

Serve with Aunt Jemima® original maple syrup. (It is the closest ingredient match to McDonald’s hotcake syrup)

If you don't want the sugar from the sprite, which is fantastic and why it takes like McDonalds! Use club soda/seltzer water/pelligrino - makes fluffy pancakes.
