Weekend Rewind: Freezer Pancakes

I am almost out of these, so I will need to be making up another batch very soon.  In fact, I'm almost out of the boxed batter as well, so if I don't find a stock up price on the mix, I may have to try out a from scratch recipe to save even more money!

This post was originally written on April 15, 2010:

I will admit that I am not a big cooker of breakfast.  I am very much a pour it in a bowl or pop it in the toaster/microwave type person.  My daughter is absolutely fine with this.  Except for the past two days she kept going on and on about pancakes.  She loves mini pancakes.  I used to buy the frozen ones in a box because it was simple, but those things cost A LOT of money for just a few pancakes.  For the price you pay for one box of those that has maybe a couple dozen in it, you could buy a whole box of pancake mix.  But, then you have the whole hassle of actually cooking them and dirtying up the mixing bowls and griddle, etc.

Well, I'm not quite sure when the idea came to me.  I believe it was long before I started freezer cooking my dinners.  I noticed the package of pancake mix had directions for larger batches of pancakes printed near the bottom.

I thought, if they can sell pancakes frozen, why can't I freeze my own pancakes?  So I decided to give it a shot, and it worked really well.  So, I thought I would share this with you guys.  I will make up the largest batch.  I could even go larger if I wanted to double the ingredients listed, but the one using 3 cups of mix lasts us quite a while.  I mix up the batter in a large mixing bowl.

Then I pour them out in small circles onto the pre-heated griddle.  You can do this on the stove too, it will just take a little bit longer.

There is the messy picture, because of course the neat looking one wouldn't upload =P.  It takes a few batches like this on the griddle.  As I take them off, I pile them up on a plate or something and let them cool off while we eat some fresh ones.

Once they are cool (but don't let them sit out too long), I place them in a large freezer bag, date it and pop it in the freezer.  Now when my daughter asks for pancakes, I can pop a few into the microwave. =)  Saves me time and money, so I definately love that!
