Breakfast for dinner

Planning to serve breakfast for dinner tomorrow night.
Eggs, fruit salad, chopped Israeli salad

I also want to make pancakes.
Looking for a food recipe where the batter can sit in the fridge. I'd like to mix the batter in the morning, make some pancakes at 5pm and the rest at 7:30pm.

Any tried and true recipes? I have ricotta and a basket full of clementines and lemons.

  1. this recipe has been on my list to try for a long time. I do one similar with cottage cheese and I prefer them to a regular pancake. They are so light and flavourful.

    1. I don't know about pancake batters that can sit. I think of things with baking powder or baking soda as needing to be cooked pretty much right away.

      Would waffles work? There's a waffle recipe with yeast that sits overnight. Has fantastic flavor. (Martha Shulman's recipe.) Let me know if you want that recipe.

      1. I have no problem with letting crepe-type pancake batter sit overnight in the frig. (In fact, I think it turns out better.) It is unleavened. If nothing else, you could do that. They also keep better than puffy/American style pancakes, so you could just reheat for the later crowd.

        1. We love to do that! Sometimes we have "backward day" where we have dinner for breakfast and breakfast for dinner. It's fun, although, the veggie choice at 7 a.m. has to be made carefully LOL!

          1. Leavening will probably go flat. Better to make the pancakes the day before, then gently reheat in the microwave ( or wrapped in foil in the oven) if you don't want to take the time to do them from scratch right before dinner.
