The most wonderful day of the year is pancake day. When else do you allow yourself to consume a ton of savory and sweet goodies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Although being noted on our calendars, Shrove Tuesday always manages to sneak up on us when we’re not prepared. For this reason, this TikTok hack will completely transform your life. This year, Shrove Tuesday is observed on February 21.
A video of frozen pancakes was uploaded to Instagram and TikTok by Texas-based culinary blogger Deimante Dabravolskis, and it is, quite simply, brilliant. By mixing the batter, placing it into ice cube trays, and freezing it beforehand, she alleviates the stress of pancake day, and the video has already received over 1 million likes.
Her particular recipe works for American-style pancakes rather than French crêpes, and she adds fruit and chocolate to the batter for a sweet take. It’s the perfect way of preparing a fuss-free breakfast any day of the year, or why not style your own pancake charcuterie board to add a little fun to the occasion? Ahead, read how to make the freezer pancakes and then have fun experimenting with your own toppings.
125ml milk of choice
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tbsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
189g of gf flour
Toppings such as berries, chocolate chips
Add eggs, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla to a bowl and whisk.
Then, add baking powder, salt, and flour to the bowl. Whisk to incorporate. Don’t over mix.
Pour the batter into a regular size ice cube tray. Add toppings of your choice and freeze.
When ready to use, heat some oil in a frying pan on LOW heat and add the frozen batter cubes. These will take a few minutes to fully melt, gently press down on each pancake to help the batter melt. Use a cover to help it melt quicker.
Flip each pancake and cook until no more batter is oozing out.
Enjoy with added sides of your choosing.
