Pancake Storage Tips

Here are some tips for storing leftover pancakes:


  • Cool completely: Allow the pancakes to cool completely before storing them. This prevents them from becoming soggy or sticking together. Place them on a wire rack to promote air circulation and prevent condensation build-up.

Storage methods:

  • Refrigerator (short-term): For short-term storage (1-2 days), store your pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Lay them flat in a single layer or separate them with wax paper or parchment paper to prevent sticking.
  • Freezer (long-term): For longer storage (up to 2-3 months), freeze your pancakes. Flash freeze them individually on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for about 1-2 hours. Once frozen solid, transfer them to a labeled freezer-safe bag or airtight container.


  • Refrigerated pancakes: Reheat refrigerated pancakes gently in a pan with a little butter or oil over low heat until warmed through. Alternatively, microwave them on low power for about 30 seconds, flipping halfway through, until warmed through.
  • Frozen pancakes: Thaw frozen pancakes in the refrigerator overnight before reheating them using the same methods as for refrigerated pancakes. Alternatively, you can reheat them directly from frozen in a toaster oven or under the broiler for a few minutes, watching closely to avoid burning.

Additional tips:

  • Stacking: If stacking pancakes before storing, place a paper towel between each pancake to absorb any moisture and prevent sticking.
  • Labeling: When storing, label your container with the date to keep track of freshness.
  • Quality: While pancakes are generally safe to store, the quality and texture may slightly deteriorate over time, especially after freezing.
  • Freshness is best: For the best texture and flavor, it’s recommended to enjoy your pancakes fresh whenever possible.

  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1 cups milk


  • In a large bowl, whisk the flour, the baking powder, the baking soda and the salt. Add the ginger, the cinnamon, the cloves and the nutmeg.
  • In another mixing bowl, beat the egg with the vanilla and the molasses until it is all smooth. Whisk in the milk until it is completely incorporated with the molasses mixture.
  • Slowly stir the molasses mixture into the flour and spice mixture. Stir just until combined, there will be some lumps.
  • Heat your griddle over med-high heat. Brush your griddle with some butter. Add about 1/4 cup of batter to the griddle for each pancake. Lower the heat just a bit to about medium. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes and they begin to brown just a bit around the edges, this is about 2 minutes, and then flip them over and cook them on the other side for around 2 minutes more.
  • Watch them closely as they do burn more easily than regular pancakes.
