I lay out one of my large cookie sheets with wax or parchment paper spread out on it. Cook up the pancakes as normal.
Layer them on the cookie sheet to cool. It is important that you let them cool off completely before freezing or they will stick together and make a mess when you try to get them apart to reheat.
I go ahead and start stacking them as I cook. Going from one end of the cookie sheet to the other. By the time I get back to one layer it has had time to cool off.
I use a gallon size freezer bag and make four stacks four pancakes high.
Place in the freezer, I'm not sure how long they will stay fresh in the freezer. The ones around here get eaten pretty fast! (I do my bulk pancake making a couple of times a month.)
When the monkeys ask for a pancake breakfast I simply get out however many they want and defrost at half power in the microwave for about 1-1 1/2 minutes. I then flip them over and heat on high for about 30 seconds. I use a pizza cutter to slice them, add syrup, some bacon or sausage (also precooked by me) , and I have a hot breakfast ready for their busy day!
This works for me every time! Head on over to Kristen's at We Are THAT Family to see what works for everyone else this almost-back-to-school week.
Until next time,
