INSIDER INFORMATION
  • Always pre-heat skillet or griddle before cooking pancakes. Pan is hot when drops of water sizzle and dance on surface.
  • Cook pancakes in batches. Serve immediately or keep warm on a plate in a low (200°F) oven until all batter is used.
  • Make your own freezer pancakes, ready to pop in the toaster on those hurried weekday mornings.
  • To freeze: Cool pancakes on wire racks. Return to baking sheets; freeze in single layer 1 to 2 hours. Wrap well, individually or stacked; freeze up to 1 month.
