Definitely don't do that - no matter what your leavening agent (baking powder, baking soda, creamed butter, egg foam or some combination thereof) you need it to go into the oven quickly after mixing the batter.
You can mix dry ingredients together (less the sugar), pre-measure the rest, and that might save you 15 minutes the next day.
