I made a big batch of pancakes this morning and have leftover batter. If I keep it covered in the fridge will it still be good tomorrow morning?

Meaghan, I think you just described the best stoner snack in history.

LOL!! Actually I came up with this in college when trying to find a quick & easy breakfast... I'm not a breakfast person (no eggs, no regular pancakes, no cereal) and usually a dish requires ample pork or chocolate for me to eat before noon. I'd make a batch of silver dollar pancakes once or twice a week and keep them in a ziploc in the fridge, pulling them out as needed. Of course it quickly morphed into a go-to Saturday night drunk snack too. :)

The perfect snack: Take two leftover pancakes, spread Nutella between them, and heat until crispy in a preheated waffle iron or panini press.

Or make them all and freeze leftovers (plain or garnished) for another day.

This is what I always do. Definitely saves the mess of cooking up another batch the next day, and just as good when reheated.

Yes. I would say up to 2 days. I also sometimes makes the entire batch and then pop leftover pancakes in the microwave for 30 or so seconds.
