FAQs 

Can I use frozen strawberries for the topping?

While fresh strawberries are recommended for the best flavor and texture, you can use frozen strawberries in a pinch. Just be sure to thaw and drain them before tossing them with sugar and lemon juice.

Can I make the pancake batter in advance?

Yes, you can prepare the pancake batter ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Stir it gently before using.

How can I keep my pancakes warm while cooking batches?

To keep pancakes warm while cooking additional batches, preheat your oven to the lowest setting and place cooked pancakes on a baking sheet in a single layer. Cover them with foil to keep them warm.

Can I freeze leftover pancakes?

Yes, you can freeze leftover pancakes. Please place them in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze until they are solid. Then, transfer them to a freezer bag, separating each pancake with parchment paper to prevent sticking. Reheat in a toaster or microwave when ready to enjoy.
