The pancakes we can fit about 3 stacks of 3" cakes (about 27) in a gallon bag. Each bag can feed our family probably 3 times if we all eat the norm (about 3 each for hubby and I then 3 split between the girls). We got the equivalent of 4 bags worth of the hot cakes. We use a recipe adapted from this one; but for our purposes here at CB, I've listed ours below:
Super Awesome Fluffy Pancakes

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

(Note to self: avoid Food Network when trying to cook with $0 & 0 time) My recipe was a take on P-Dub's, but, like I said, we either had the ingredients or needed to get creative since I am dumb and didn't make my list from the recipes I wanted to make but rather 'stored' the info in my head with basic ingredients :) In an effort to save time, we have some jarred pasta sauces on hand to make the transition from freezer to table a lot more 'efficient'.
