My boys love pancakes! BUT, I hate making the pancake mess every morning. Especially, because we had to be out of our house around 8:30 am on the mornings that Nathan had preschool. About a year ago, I was on the phone with a friend, and I was sort of complaining about my little dilemma. She then said, “why don’t you just freeze some?”
Why didn’t I think of that? I generally think that I have pretty good common sense, but apparently not with certain things. How many times have you just thrown a bowl in the sink that still has some batter in it? I know I sure did, before I started freezing them.
Now, when I make pancakes, I always mix up extra batter and make us pancakes to last a week or two. Because, it’s just the two boys that eat them I will freeze them 3 or 4 pancakes per stack. I wrap the individual stacks in Press N’ Seal.
After all the individual stacks are wrapped, I just put all of them in a Gallon Freezer Ziploc bag and stick it in the freezer!
It seriously makes breakfast so much easier! I just pull out one stack at a time, microwave them for about a minute or so and then serve them up! I know it’s not genius or anything, but I figured if I didn’t think about this simple idea, then at least one other person out there may benefit from this little tip!
