With only a couple of weeks left of school, hopefully we’ll have some lazy mornings soon!

How to Freeze Pancakes

These pancakes also hold up really well in the freezer if you’d rather not use the extras right away. Simply layer them between sheets of wax or parchment paper (or first freeze them for a few hours in a single layer on a baking sheet), and then throw them into a freeze-safe ziplock bag!

How to Reheat Pancakes

The easiest way to reheat these buttermilk blueberry pancakes is to pop them in the microwave. Times will vary depending on your microwave oven and the number of pancakes on the plate, but a good place to start is about 20 seconds per pancake. Be careful (especially with young children) as the blueberries can get quite hot.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Make a well, or hole, in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk, eggs, butter, and syrup. Whisk together until just combined, do not overmix. Fold in the blueberries.
  • Heat a griddle to 350 degrees F or a large skillet over medium heat. Swirl enough butter around the griddle/pan until it is well coated. Using a soup ladle, add one ladleful of batter per pancake.
  • When the bottoms have started to brown, flip over and repeat. Cook in batches until the batter is gone, adding extra butter each time to keep the pan from getting dry. Transfer to a plate and repeat until no batter remains.
  • Top with a little pat of butter and serve with warm syrup.

  1. I’ve made similar with buckwheat flour, but I like the idea of including buttermilk.
    And it never occurred to me to freeze pancakes. Mind blown!
