More About This Menu

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Once thawed, the freezer jam can be stored up to four weeks in the fridge.
  4. Scale up the bloody marys and make a pitcher's worth ahead of time; simply add vodka as you serve them.
