I have a gang coming for the weekend, I am planning buckwheat pancakes. Can I cook them ahead of time and then reheat when we have breakfast?

I do this at Christmas when the whole family is here. Cook them ahead of time and put them either in the refrigerator (or the freezer if it's more than a couple of days ahead).
To reheat a lot of them at once, put in a casserole dish with a cover - or any pan covered with aluminum foil - and bake in the oven at 350 degrees F. for 20 to 30 minutes.
I also do this & heat them in toaster, as we know the ones in freezer in stores are made ahead, good luck.
I think wrapping panakes in a paper towel and putting them in the microwave for about a minute makes them taste like you just made the. Depending on your microwave it might take a little longer.
I make a lot of pancakes at once and put into a gallon freezer bag before placing in the refrigerator. They will remain moist even after reheating in a microwave. Time will vary depending on the thickness and size of pancake.
