Mixed Grain Griddlecakes FAQs
What is the difference between griddlecakes and pancakes?
There isn't really much of a difference between pancakes and griddlecakes. The only difference is what you use to cook the cakes. Technically, when you cook them in a pan, they are pancakes; and when you cook them on a griddle, they are griddlecakes!
How long will these griddlecakes last?
You can store any leftover griddlecakes in the fridge for up to 5 days in an airtight container. Alternatively, you can freeze your lefover griddlecakes for up to 3 months!
