Pancakes are a great snack or meal anytime of the day, and you might find yourself craving them at odd times. That is why it is nice to make large batches of them and refrigerate or even freeze them. Reheating them in the oven allows you to save time and energy of having to cook them every time. With the proper method, reheating your pancakes in the oven will have them tasting as if they just came off the griddle.

Things You'll Need

Arrange pancakes in stacks of three on an oven-safe tray. Do not add any butter, margarine or non-stick spray to the oven tray. The pancakes are already prepared and do not need any excess butter or oil cooked in. The heating process only re-warms the pancakes and will not make them stick to the oven warming tray.

Preheat your electric oven to 350 F or set your gas oven to level 4 or 350 F. Avoid placing the pancakes into the oven before preheated. This helps to ensure your pancakes are heated evenly and for a proper amount of time, which prevents the pancakes from getting soggy or dry.

Position aluminum foil over your pancakes on the oven warming tray and place the tray into the oven. Warm your pancakes for 10 to 15 minutes or until they are hot. Once they are done being warmed, take them out of the oven and let them cool for a minute or two if needed. Afterwards, butter, pour syrup and put on toppings as usual.
