I don’t cook that often, but we have a Saturday tradition in our home in which I make pancakes. I generally make between 60 to 70 pancakes. We’ve got a big griddle.

10 Family Pancake Meal Tips I’ve Learned:

- A big griddle is a good investment.

- Don’t force someone to cook while you’re eating – make a whole batch and have them all ready.

- Find a place to keep them warm – we used a crock pot.

- And don’t be afraid that you’ll have too many. Pancakes make great leftovers.

- Use Real Maple Syrup.

- Bisquick is good. Made from scratch is better. And not really that difficult. Find a good recipe.

- Start out each round by spreading butter on the griddle. Not for sticky-lessness, for flavor. Remember: Butter is healthy fat.

- While you’re cooking, throw some bacon and eggs on another pan – to add protein to your breakfast.

- Take the last couple batches and fill the kids’ plates, with butter and syrup pre-placed on before you sit down. That way there isn’t a big wait to get everything ready after you pray.

- And if you are wondering when to flip, take a tip from John Piper’s Mom: Notice when the bubbles form on the edges.

 

Any other suggestions?
