What to serve with pancakes:

  • Bacon. I love to cook bacon in the oven. This saves so much time and the bacon is crispy and delicious.
  • Fresh Fruit. Prepare a large bowl of diced fruit that is in season.
  • Sausage. Pancakes taste great with sausage links, patties or even sausage balls.
  • Eggs. You can prepare the eggs the way you love best. We like fried or scrambled.

Topping ideas:

  • Maple Syrup
  • Flavored Syrup. Try other varieties of syrup. We like bluberry, strawberry and butter pecan.
  • Butter. Top the warm pancakes with butter and it will melt easily.
  • Whipped Cream
  • Strawberry Sauce
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Chocolate Sauce
  • Sprinkles and Whipped Cream. We love to do this for birthdays.

How to store pancakes:

Leftover pancakes store great!  Refrigerate them in an airtight container for up to 5-7 days.

Reheat in the microwave for a quick breakfast. You might want to make a large batch on Sunday and enjoy these during the week. It is so convenient.

How to freeze pancakes:

Place pancakes inside a freezer bag or freezer safe containers for up to 3 months. Make sure to allow the pancakes to cool completely before freezing.

I suggest separating the pancakes with parchment paper.  When ready to reheat, just pop in the microwave for a few seconds until heated through.

Learn how to freeze pancakes for even more tips. We do this frequently and it is very convenient during busy seasons.
