- Keep pancakes hot after cooking by placing them on a baking sheet, covered with a clean towel, in a barely warm oven (preheat it to 200°, then turn it off). For more sweet breakfast options, see our gallery of pancakes, waffles, and french toast recipes.
- You can use fresh or frozen berries of any kind in the pancakes; to keep the frozen variety from staining the batter, toss them in a bit of flour or cornstarch before adding them to the mix.
- Once thawed, the freezer jam can be stored up to four weeks in the fridge.
- Scale up the bloody marys and make a pitcher's worth ahead of time; simply add vodka as you serve them.
