When we make pancakes, we make twice as much as we need.
Who wants leftover pancakes? We do!
We reheat them by toasting them in the toaster oven. The outsides get nice and crispy. In our book, they’re even better than the original batch.
July 4th Recipes
Red, White & Blue Pancakes. Make red, white and blue pancakes for July 4th brunch: Top your pancakes with sour cream, crème fraîche, plain yogurt or mascarpone, plus blueberries and raspberries or strawberries.
Star Shaped Pancakes. You can make very large pancakes and cut them into star shapes with a cookie cutter. Keep the scraps and reheat them later to make a “pancake trifle” with syrup or whipped cream and fruit.
TIP: If you’re going to make pancakes, get a delicious whole wheat pancake mix. The pancakes will count toward your daily recommended 48 grams of whole grain.
