Pancake add-ins

If you want extra fluffy pancakes, or just additional flavor, you can add other ingredients to this base recipe.

  • 1 tsp baking powder for fluffier pancakes
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Blueberries
  • Chocolate chips
  • Banana slices

Storing pancakes

These pancakes keep well in the fridge after they have been cooked. You can store them in an airtight container or baggie for up to 3 days. Reheat them in the microwave or toaster oven before you eat them. Or, you can reheat them on your skillet on the stovetop.

Freezing pancakes

You can also freeze these pancakes for up to 3 months. First, freeze them in a single layer on a sheet pan, without overlapping. This prevents them from sticking together. Then, put the individually frozen pancakes in baggie or airtight container.

Reheat them in a toaster oven or your regular oven right from frozen. Try cooking them at 375 degrees F in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
