Can I make this pancake batter ahead of time?

Yes, this pancake batter can be made ahead of time! Store the batter in THIS pancake dispenser in the fridge for three days.

What if my batter is too thick?

If the pancake batter feels too thick, add more milk, one tablespoon at a time. The batter should be slightly lumpy and should pour quickly.

What if my batter is too runny?

If the batter is runny, you may have added too much liquid, so add in a bit of flour slowly until you get a perfect consistency.

How do I know when my pancakes are ready to flip?

When the pancakes are ready to flip, they will start to bubble.

How do I reheat the pancakes?

Reheat the pancakes in the microwave, oven, or toaster oven until warmed.

What kind of chocolate chips do I use?

You can use milk chocolate chip morsels or dark chocolate chips, and we also love using mini morsels!
