Yesterday I blogged about the quick frozen biscuits, today its Pancakes!!! Who doesn’t love Pancakes on a Sunday morning??
This recipe is super easy to freeze although it takes a little bit more effort its definitely worth it in the end! In South Africa we call these particular pancakes “Flapjacks”. A more traditional Pancake for us would be a thinner type crepe if you will…
Here is the recipe…
Easy Homemade Pancake Recipe
- 1 ½ cup flour
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 ¼ -1 ½ cups milk
- 2 eggsMix together the dry ingredients. Add the eggs and milk to the bowl and combine. The batter does not need to be perfectly smooth.
Preheat a skillet or frying pan. Grease with butter and use a ladle to pour evenly sized pancakes.
Serve them warm with butter, syrup, whipped cream and fruit.
This recipe makes about a dozen medium sized pancakes.
If you like, I find it easier to pour the batter into an old squeeze bottle like a condiment bottle – This just makes it less messy and easier to pour onto the cooking surface.
Quick clean up tip – wash all the bowls and utensils you’ve used once you’ve poured the batter into a bottle and are waiting for the cooking surface to heat. Once you’ve finished cooking all the pancakes, I find the last thing I would like to do is turn around and find a mound of dishes waiting for me. It’s much easy to clean as you’re cooking…
To freeze these, here is what to do…
To Freeze Pancakes
Double this easy homemade pancake recipe and freeze the leftovers.
Let pancakes cool to at least room temperature first.
Layer a sheet of waxed or parchement paper between each of the pancakes so they don’t freeze together.
Then put the pancakes into a freeze quality container, I recommend a freezer bag.
Freeze pancakes for up to three months. Remember to mark this on the freezer bag.
To reheat pancakes
Reheat frozen pancakes in the microwave. Try not to stack them and flip once while reheat; times vary based on your microwave.
Frozen pancakes can also be left out to thaw at room temperature.
Until next time
