  3. Pour pancake batter onto heated, dry griddle by the 1/4-cupful, evenly spaced; cook until bubbles form, rise to the top and burst; flip to brown and evenly cook.
  4. Serve immediately topped with Grade B Maple syrup, or honey of choice, or jelly of choice.
  5. Or place onto wire cooling rack; cool completely prior to storage in refrigerator.
To freeze: place pancakes in a single layer on parchment-lined baking sheet; separate layers with parchment paper; wrap sheet tightly in plastic; freeze at least 2 hours; remove frozen pancakes to plastic freezer bag; store frozen up to 2 months.
