Can I store leftover pancake batter in the refrigerator?

You can store leftover pancake batter in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Add another layer of protection of the batter by placing plastic wrap over the storage container and a lid. You will need to mix the batter again before cooking it. As an extra measure to make sure the pancake mix has not gone flat, whisk in another egg as a leavening agent.

Tips and tricks to making a buttermilk pancake crispy and golden…

  • Cook pancakes in an iron skillet  
  • Use butter not oil
  • Make sure the pan is properly heated so the pancake batter will cook immediately when placed on the butter
  • With the pan on medium heat, cook the pancake for about 3 minutes on one side – until it gets bubbly all over and then 2 minutes on the other side
