Old Fashion Overnight Pancakes Recipe

I’m not a morning person, so anything I can do to sleep in a little bit helps!   With a daughter in kindergarten now it’s important to me I send her with a full belly.   Here’s my solution to both problems.   These are some of the best pancakes ever.

- – Ingredients – -

  • 6 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 4 1/2 TBSP Baking Powder
  • 3 tsp Salt
  • 4 TBSP Sugar
  • 5 Cups Milk
  • 4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Eggs
  • 4 1/2 TBSP Butter (melted)

- – Directions – -

  1. Toss all ingredients into a large bowl and mix with mixer until well blended.   Cover and place in refrigerator overnight.
  2. Preheat skillet or griddle and spray with a light coat of cooking spray.
  3. Batter will rise and be very thick, so use a small cup or measuring cup to scoop 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle one at a time.
  4. Cook until brown on both sides.
  5. Serve.   And see the Freezer Cooking tip below!

- – Cooking Tips & Ideas – -

  • Get Creative - Add fruit or peanut butter or chocolate chips for a new taste, use to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, or top with peanut butter and drizzle in syrup before serving.
  • Freezer Cooking - This recipe yields 32 servings, so place the remaining into a freezer bag once they’ve cooled completely.   They pop apart easily once frozen and can be tossed into the toaster for a quick, delicious breakfast in the morning!
  • For Kids - When these pancakes hit the skillet, they are thick, so you can use a spoon to easily (but quickly) shape them into Mickey Mouse, a heart, or whatever!

WONDERFUL! I’ve been looking for a recipe like this – esp. one that freezes so well! :)
