If the idea of making pancakes in the morning puts you off because of the time involved, try making your batter the night before and placing it in the fridge. Have your griddle on the counter, ready to be turned on and your plates and utensils set on the table. You'll be eating fresh, hot, delicious pancakes in 10 minutes.
Want an even better tip? Double your batch and let the extras cool on a baking rack. Freeze in a large ziploc bag then just take out of the freezer and microwave as needed!
