“This is a staple in my house on the weekends. Its a hit with my kids and guests that come over. It can easily be double or tripled. They freeze very well so no batter goes to waste. Warm in microwave and they taste like they were just made. You can even dress it with whipped cream and/or fruit of your choice.”
