Recipe Notes

To freeze our homemade pancakes properly, stack each pancake in between a sheet of parchment paper. Then, place the stack of pancakes inside a heavy-duty freezer bag and freeze for up to one month. To thaw, place them in the refrigerator.  Heat carefully in a toaster or in a microwave (time varies according to pancake size and microwave power). For our pancake size, it should take about 20-30 seconds for each pancake heated in a 1200-Watt microwave.
