Recipe by Chef1MOM-Connie

This was a favorite for my children and now I make for myself to keep in a tin or freezer for a quick dessert like breakfast or snack. My high school students think these are super. Very simple recipe made from prepared pancake mix.

What a great way to make sure you don't miss breakfast when you're in a hurry. I almost always have pancakes in my freezer. Now I just pull a couple out, pop them in the microwave, top them of with peanut butter and jelly, and I have a delicious and satisfying breakfast to go. I used Pete's Scratch Pancakes (#5170) instead of the pancake mix. Thanks for sharing Chef1MOM.
