Pancakes are like soup.
Let me explain.
When you’re tight on time & money you want to be able to prepare frugal foods that are scale-able.
Meaning, you can easily make double & triple batches to freeze for later use.
As long as you have a pot that is big enough, you can make several batches of soup, which significantly cuts down on your time in the kitchen. Likewise, if you have a large pancake griddle, you can make dozens & dozens of pancakes in no time.
I don’t double or triple every recipe I make because there are just some recipes that don’t freeze well (most salads for example).
But, if a recipe freezes well, I’m all about saving time & waste (ie. money!) & I’ll double or triple a batch.
(This is one of the premises of my Simple 28 day meal plan, where I include notes to double or triple recipes to be used later on in the week or month.)
Also, my kids love (most) soup, & they love, love pancakes.
So there you go.
Pancakes are like soup.
We devote one night a week to breakfast food–part of our themed dinner nights we use to streamline our menu planning process, which I explain in full in the Simple meal plan.
Hands down, this is our most popular dinner night.
My kids love helping make pancakes, they love eating them.
And these vegan gluten free buckwheat pancakes, like my buttermilk pancakes, are gluten-free. The main difference between the two is that these are made with buckwheat (& oat flour). Can I say that buckwheat was made for pancakes? Or, maybe more accurately, pancakes were made for buckwheat?
The buckwheat gives these pancakes a classically breakfast taste (you’ll know what I mean when you sink your teeth into these).
Hearty, filling, & very nutritious.
