Our kids have always loved having hot pancakes for breakfast. Me on the other hand have never loved standing over a hot stove first thing in the morning to make said pancakes.
So, my solution has to always make pancakes the day before and either refrigerate or freeze a big batch of pancakes for the kids to enjoy. To be honest, the ONLY time I make hot fresh pancakes for them is when someone requests them for their birthday.
You can imagine my daughter's surprise earlier this year when we had family visiting, and she woke up to find me making fresh pancakes for her cousins. She couldn't believe that I was actually making pancakes first thing. Trust me, girl. It will not happen often.
We usually keep a few jars of this Bisquick Substitute in our fridge, so we can make pancakes, biscuits, or this Easy Cornbread. This all purpose baking mix can be used for any recipe that calls for Bisquick.
Using it for pancakes is probably the most common way we use it the most though. Adding blueberries to pancake mix makes the most delicious breakfast treat!
To be fair, you can use any berry that you have on hand, and they will still be amazing.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you keep homemade blueberry pancakes from turning blue?
Using fresh blueberries will keep your batter from turning blue. But blueberries are not always available, so frozen blueberries are a great way to enjoy blueberry pancakes. The frozen berries will add streaks of blue as you stir them in.
Do not over stir and your batter should be fine. Here a few other options for using frozen blueberries.
- Rinse the frozen berries in cold water a few times - until the water is lighter when you drain them. Dry the tops and bottoms of the blueberries very well with paper towels.

How do you keep pancakes warm without getting soggy?
Keep pancakes warm by placing them on a baking sheet in a 200 degree oven until you are ready to serve them.
Avoid stacking the pancakes on top of each other, which can make steam form and cause the pancakes to lose their crisp exterior.

Make the pancakes and let them cool completely. Layer them between sheets of wax paper in a freezer bag and keep in the freezer for up to 2 months.
