Do you thaw the pancakes first?

Hi Suzie! You do not thaw the pancakes first. You cut 24 frozen pancakes in half and then follow the rest of the directions. Hope you enjoy them!

Is there a wait time to when you can put it in the oven? I wouldn’t want to put it right in while the dish is still cold because I’m afraid it’ll explode

@Casey, I absolutely understand your concern. I have been able to put a dish straight from fridge to oven successfully. I put the dish in the oven for about 30 minutes and THEN turn the oven on. The dish will gradually heat up with the oven. When the oven is ready start your timer for 10 minutes less than the cook time called for. Check for doneness and move forward accordingly. Hope this helps 😊

Hi Casey. Great question. I recommend letting your casserole dish rest on the counter per manufacturers recommended time frame before placing in the oven to avoid sudden temperature changes.
