How long can pancake batter keep?

pixellle | Feb 10, 200703:58 AM     60

I used to always make a big batch of pancakes on the weekend then freeze the leftovers. They froze very well, with wax or parchment paper in between each one, then I could cook them as needed in the microwave or toaster-oven.

But now my 10-year-old daughter has decided that she doesn't like frozen pancakes anymore. So now I fix the batter and then just cook one or two -- that's all she'll eat at once. So, how long can I keep the batter in the fridge? Two days, I'm sure of. Can I go beyond that? Or, could I freeze the batter? What do you think?
