I like making this Easy Pancake Recipe ahead of time and freezing them to give the kids a quick and easy breakfast option.
Easy Toppings – Healthy Choices
We like to add toppings such as honey, maple syrup, and one of their favorites is to smear peanut butter, add sliced banana and drizzle honey on top! Or you could add some fruit, even frozen fruit works! I also make pear butter, strawberry jam, and beautyberry jelly. The kids love adding these on pancakes!
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 1 large egg
- 4 tbsp butter (melted)
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Heat a large skillet on medium heat.
- Use a 1/3 measuring cup to spoon out the batter into the pan.
- Flip when several bubbles appear, usually 2-3 minutes or until browned slightly
- Brown the other side of the pancake, it should take about 1-2 minutes.
- Serve and enjoy, or freeze for later!
Freezing and Reheating Instructions:
After I’m done cooking all of the pancakes, I cut up some freezer paper into squares to place between each pancake and then I place them in a plastic freezer bag to freeze them. To Reheat: Place in microwave for 1-2 minutes. Make sure it is not too hot before serving!

Make Your Own Dry Pancake Mix
You know people buy pancake mix, so they don’t have to go through all of the trouble of mixing it themselves? However, you can actually put together your own mix and save it for later.
Add all of the dry ingredients to an airtight container, like a mason jar or an old coffee can. The dry ingredients usually last about a year or so on their own. So the mix should last for a while.
When you’re ready to make pancakes, you can measure out about 1 3/4 – 2 cups of the dry ingredients and add it to a mixing bowl. Then add the wet ingredients like milk, butter, and eggs. Lastly, fry up some pancakes as you normally would!
Making your own pancake mix can help cut down on time. Busy moms like you, really need some short cuts, especially when it comes to cooking!
