Need brunch recipes? These make ahead Gluten-Free Mini Pancake Skewers couldn't be simpler and they look adorable on the buffet table. What I love about these bite-sized ‘cakes is there are so many ways you can customize them to your tastes or to the seasons. I used a chocolate hazelnut spread and strawberries in these images, but you layer in peanut butter, bananas, apple butter or even pieces of sausage or bacon for a savory option.

Tip: I found using a pancake batter bottle (sometimes called a pen) was the easiest way to get uniform mini pancakes. Watch our video below to see exactly how it works!

    Where to get the small square plates?

      Hi Shaidah, I think they were purchased as part of a school fundraiser, but you might try World Market for something similar. Sometimes they carry unique items.

      Hi Merrin, I bought them at the grocery store. They look almost like mini forks.

        Can you use cupcake picks for the skewers?

    Can these be frozen?

      Hi Janis, I’ve never had a need to freeze them, but it seems to me they would freeze just like other pancakes. If you give it a try, please let us know how it turns out!
